Commodity Classic, the annual convention and trade show of the American Soybean Association (ASA), the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA), and the National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG), will be held Feb. 28-March 1 in Nashville, Tenn.

“The Commodity Classic trade show has more than doubled in size since its inception in 1996,” said Commodity Classic co-chair and NCGA Corn Board member Theresa Schmalshof. ”This year’s trade show will set a record with 16 percent more booths than the 2005 Commodity Classic, our largest show in history.”

“Exhibitors at the trade show have access to some of the most progressive growers in the country,” said Commodity Classic co-chair and ASA Vice President Randy Mann. “Most importantly, the growers at our trade show are the decision makers seeking information about products they plan to purchase.”

Companies interested in participating in the 2008 Commodity Classic trade show should visit, download an exhibitor contract from the “Exhibitors” tab, and fax the completed form to (636) 244-1650 to be placed on the waiting list. For more information, call (636) 922-5551 or send an e-mail to [email protected].

In addition to the tradeshow, Commodity Classic will feature valuable educational sessions, association banquets, entertainment events, and important networking opportunities. Registration and housing reservations are being accepted now.
