World Ag Expo Preview- New for 2013 | Business
If you're planning to stop by the 2013 World Ag Expo, why not check out the new digs?
The International Agri-Center held a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony January 4th for a brand new exhibit building.
The new 60,000-square-foot steel span exhibit building in the northeast corner of the International Agri-Center grounds will be utilized for World Ag Expo, and for year-round events.
"Building C is ready for this year's World Ag Expo, and we are really excited about that," said Jerry Sinift, the International Agri-Center's CEO. "This is part of our continued commitment to improve our facilities for World Ag Expo and for the community to utilize for year-round events."
The International Agri-Center's show grounds are utilized for annual events such as World Ag Expo and the California Antique Farm Equipment Show, as well as for weddings, concerts, fundraisers, business meetings, trainings and community events throughout the year.
The new building can seat 1,200 to 1,400 people for concerts and other large events such as car shows or fundraisers.
During World Ag Expo, the new building will be home to the same types of agricultural exhibitors who occupied the old pavilion, but in a more comfortable and modern structure.
World Ag Expo exhibitors and attendees will also enjoy concrete floors, permanent restrooms and more.
