"Freebies" - the best free stuff at Expo!

Wed, 10/05/2011

Whether you are a needy student or "frugal Fred," one of the easiest (albeit maybe not most productive) ways to make your visit to World Dairy Expo worthwhile is picking up free stuff.

Free Stuff

Trade shows and free stuff go together like playoff baseball in October. If you're in need of pens, tablets, stress balls, or tee-shirts, trade shows like World Dairy Expo are the place to be. This year is no exception, of course. The hot items of the year seem to be T-shirts. Many of them are in high demand (and short supply) to the extent that we couldn't find them during our early-afternoon stroll through the grounds.

Hot tee-shirt pickups include Nationwide Insurance (out on the trade mall, tee-shirt shown above), the outside Estrumate stand, and Clari-Fly. Read more

Hoard's Dairyman Commercial Exhibitor Party 2011

Wed, 10/05/2011

In year 17, the Hoard's Dairyman and World Dairy Expo commercial exhibitor party was a great success.

Dairy producers and youth from around the country make the trip to World Dairy Expo every year. They come to compete in the show ring, as part of a judging team, or maybe even in the fitting or showmanship contests. But there are a few more things to look at that just cows at every Expo.

Obviously, we're talking about the commercial exhibits stretched throughout the Exhibit Hall, Outdoor Trade Mall, Coliseum corridors, Arena, and other buildings. This year, there are over 800 commercial exhibits. We invite all of them to our annual Tuesday night party to thank them for participating in the industry's biggest event of the year. It is also where World Dairy Expo announces the "best booth" awards. Look for a post on that shortly.

Thank you to everyone who attended, we hope you had a great time! Read more
