Visit Visalia announced today that it is ready for the influx of visitors in the coming weeks, as more than 100,000 convention-goers are expected to make their way to Tulare County for the 2020 World Ag Expo happening Feb. 11-13. As arguably the “largest agriculture event on the planet,” World Ag Expo is a convention unlike any other.

Visalia, a tourism destination only a short 20 minutes from the 2020 World Ag Expo, is prepared to host the thousands and guests at their dozens of restaurants, hotels, venues and attractions.

“World Ag Expo puts the Central Valley on center stage,” said Nellie Freeborn, executive director of Visit Visalia. “It showcases our region’s unique relationship to agriculture and highlights our designation as an American agricultural powerhouse. We are excited to give visitors a well-rounded look at what makes Visalia and Tulare County an exceptional destination for farm-to-table dining and much more.”

World Ag Expo is the largest annual outdoor agricultural exposition to showcase the latest advancements and innovations in the agriculture and farming industry. The event is held in the Central Valley, one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world.

In its 53 years, World Ag Expo has grown to nearly 1,450 exhibitors and an attendance of more than 100,000 people from 49 states and 65 different countries. The annual event starts the second Tuesday of February at the International Agri-Center in Tulare, Calif., just 20 minutes south of Visalia.
