NCBA TRADE SHOW UPDATE 2
Yesterday we told you the Cattle Industry Annual Convention and NCBA Trade Show has changed it's date - due to COVID-19.
Originally scheduled for February 3-5, 2021, the convention and trade show will now take place August 10-12, 2021.
Kristen Torres with the NCBA explains...
The 2021 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade show will mark the 123rd anniversary of this legendary event, and one that will offer a multitude of fun and exciting events that are appropriate for all ages. Cattlemen’s College and the world-class NCBA Trade Show will also offer educational opportunities that cattlemen and cattlewomen can put to work on their farms and ranches.
With the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, and partners in mind, NCBA has made the difficult decision to postpone the in-person event to August 2021. However, NCBA will hold some of its traditional business meetings in the January or February timeframe, in accordance with the association’s bylaws.
“Decisions of this magnitude, which impact multiple organizations, stakeholders and companies, are never easy. However, the limits on the number of people who can gather at an event in Nashville and the travel restrictions facing many trade show exhibitors, makes it impossible for us to put on the world-class event our attendees expect this winter,” said NCBA CEO Colin Woodall.
