Why Exhibit

    Our members either own, manage, lease or farm over two million acres of farmland in the United States and South America. They hold the hammer when it’s time to pick one company over another, and they let their loyalties be known with repeat sales, which our past exhibitors appreciate.

    The hallmark of this event is face-to-face contact with people who don’t need much selling on what you, the exhibitor, have to offer. If you are an exhibitor, you are more than half way home with attendees. You’ll sit and eat lunch with your target audience. The pace will be relaxed, not hurried. We want to allow plenty of time for body language and vocal chords to perform their magic. Also, your name and contact information will be listed in the Exhibitor Directory. 

    The Chicago Farmers invite you to reserve a booth at the Chicago Farmers’ 2016 Farmland Forum. The Forum will be held on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at the Weitendorf Agricultural Education Center, a Joliet Junior College facility, located on Laraway Road in Joliet, IL. Please review the exhibitor informational letter and reserve early to assure your placement by completing the exhibitor information form and returning with payment by Monday, February 29, 2016.

    As an exhibitor, you will be able to enter the Weitendorf Ag Center on Friday, March 18th, from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM, as well as Saturday, March 19th, at 7:00 AM in order to set-up your booth.
