Hutchinson, KS – Star Expos along with the Kansas State Fair are pleased to announce a brand-new expo coming to Hutchinson and the Kansas State Fairgrounds. Partnering with the Kansas State Fair and Visit Hutch gives the Kansas Ag Expo the opportunity to showcase a more diverse expo to include manufactures and a wide variety of products and services for all to enjoy. Dates are scheduled for Thursday through Saturday, March 30th through April 1st, 2023, in Hutchinson, Kansas.
This is a new expo, but the Star Expo’s team is far from new, especially to Kansas. Previously named the Great Bend Farm & Ranch Expo, we are excited to move our network to a more ideal trade location in Hutchinson. With over 35 trade expos under their belt, Star Expos is a familiar face to the trade show world. Star Expos is a Kansas owned company that brings professionalism and a tremendous network of vendors, friends & family to agriculture and the western industry.
“We are extremely excited to bring the Kansas Ag Expo to the Kansas State Fairgrounds. We think this is the perfect fit for such a great event and our team looks forward to working with the Kansas Ag Expo group to make this a signature event for Kansas!” said Nathan McClanahan, Kansas State Fair Facility Event Coordinator.
“We are happy to have the opportunity to partner with Star Expos and the Kansas State Fairgrounds to host the Kansas Ag Expo in Hutchinson for the next three years. The Kansas Ag Expo will bring another large event to the community and further help showcase the importance of ag tourism as an economic driver in Hutchinson”, said Holly Leiker, Director of National Sales & Sports Events for Visit Hutch. The show will be located in the Prairie Pavilion at the Kansas State Fairgrounds. This venue boasts over 92,000 square feet of exhibit space as well as additional exhibits outside on the runway. Exhibit booths will include exhibitors from 27 States, Canada, Australia & England. The Kansas Ag Expo is on track to be one of the largest farm shows in the United States.
The show staff is excited about the new venue that will be able to house various seminars and demonstrations. It will be a premier livestock, farm equipment, and manufacturers show in the High Plains.
