There was a glimmer of hope that in-person farm shows would begin again in early 2021; however, the National Farm Machinery Show (NFMS) has officially been postponed until February 16 to 19, 2022.
The organizers says that although it had initially pushed the show into March, the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic has led show management to make the difficult decision to postpone events until next year.
“The health and safety of our guests, exhibitors and coworkers is our highest priority and unfortunately the best way to keep them safe is to postpone the show. Postponing the National Farm Machinery Show and Championship Tractor Pull was not made lightly, but in consultation with exhibitors, pullers, sponsors, and attendees who are a valuable part of our decision-making process,” says David S. Beck, president and CEO of Kentucky Venues.
Similar to previous years, space contracted for the prior show is reserved for the same exhibitor at the next show. Exhibitors’ 2020 floor space is reserved in 2022.
The National Farm Machinery Show is held annually at the Kentucky Exposition Center and is the largest indoor farm show in the country consisting of 1.2 million square feet of sold-out exhibit space. RealAgriculture has attended for several years. See all our past coverage here.
