Innovative exhibits will showcase a mobile biodiesel unit, a multi-unit hydroponic system working display, an indoor landscape installation, plant pest diagnostics display with hundreds of specimens and much, much more.

Attendees will also find fun activities for the whole family such as a giant inflatable Smoky the Bear with a genuine, antique mountaintop firetower, local wildlife exhibit, state parks exhibit, Farm Bureau Combine AgSimulator, mobile agriculture literacy trailer, and a photo booth to capture conference memories. The ice cream socials on Sunday and Monday night will be a great time for families to explore the trade show.
