There is still time to register for the 16th Annual Commodity Classic to be held March 3-5 in Tampa, Fla. Commodity Classic is the premier convention and trade show of the U.S. corn, soybean, sorghum and wheat industries.

Each year, the industry gathers at Commodity Classic to experience, learn and share information about issues, technology and trends in U.S. agriculture. Attendees can get ahead of the curve by participating in a number of learning center sessions, including: It’s a Jungle Out There – Blazing New Trails for Agriculture; Marketing + Discipline = Better Profitability; and The Future of Crop Insurance is Now!

“Learning Center Sessions provide attendees with an unbiased look at a number of different issues that can affect their operations,” said Commodity Classic Co-Chair Theresa Schmalshof. “We present topics that not only impact the here and now, but also what growers might expect to deal with in the future.”  

Whether cruising the trade show floor or sitting in on learning sessions, attendees will encounter countless opportunities to speak with grower, agribusiness and other industry leaders about equipment, technology and techniques impacting production agriculture. More than 200 companies in over 860 booths will be displaying the latest in cutting-edge products and services at the trade show.

The convention will close on March 5 with the Evening of Entertainment, featuring a performance by the chart-topping Little River Band.
