The International Agri-Center Board of Directors announced the cancellation of the World Ag Expo after discussions with Tulare County public health officials
TULARE – Still over four months away and COVID-19 has claimed another event.
The International Agri-Center Board of Directors announced on Monday, Sept. 14 to cancel the 2021 World Ag Expo.
“After working with the Tulare County Health Department and other officials, it has become evident that given health and safety restrictions from the State of California, holding a live, international event is not responsible in February,” said Jerry Sinift, International Agri-Center CEO.
The board’s decision to cancel the 2021 World Ag Expo was not taken lightly, stated a press release from Monday morning.
“The decision was finalized earlier than the initial November deadline to provide exhibitors, attendees, volunteers, concessionaires, contractors, and local businesses time to adjust their Tulare farm show plans,” the release went on.
Attendees are encouraged to follow World Ag Expo social media channels and watch their email inboxes for more information on World Ag Expo projects throughout 2020 and 2021. They can join the World Ag Expo email list to stay up-to-date at bit.ly/WAEupdates.
The next World Ag Expo is scheduled for Feb. 8–10, 2022, at the International Agri-Center in Tulare.
