Directory of Farm ShowsWhere can I get a directory of major farm shows throughout the U.S. and Canada? Many readers ask us that question and we've got the answer. Century Communications puts out a directory and it's a dandy. What's more, a limited number of copies are available on a "first come, first serve" basis.
The just-published directory, inserted into the July, 1982 issue of Century's Agri-Marketing magazine, gives a rundown on some 200 different farm and agriculture trade shows, expositions and fairs. For each, it lists the date, location and contact address, and the number of exhibitors and visitors at "last year's" show.
If you'd like a copy, send your check for $5.00 to: FARM SHOW Followup, c/o Century Communications, Suite G, 5520 Touhy Ave., Skokie, Ill. 60077 (ph 312 676-4060). Make your check payable to Century Communications.
