Even the most seasoned Sunbelt Ag Expo-goers will admit to getting lost at times during the three-day show, or at least to being overwhelmed at the sheer amount of things to see and do.
Now there’s a smartphone app to help you find your way while getting the most out of the show.
The 2013 Sunbelt Ag Expo, to be held Oct. 15-17, at Spence Field in Moultrie, Ga., features approximately 1,200 exhibitors, a working farm, equipment demonstrations and driving ranges, and various educational opportunities.
The exclusive tradeshow mobile app is available at no cost and will help you to navigate the 100-acre exhibit area, 40 acres of parking, and 600-acre research farm, while organizing your activities and staying abreast of the many events occurring daily at the Expo.
The app was successfully launched in 2011, and during this past year’s show, nearly 4,000 downloads were made from mobile devices. Provided by Farm Press Publications and Penton Media Inc., the app allows those attending the Sunbelt Expo to use their iPhone, IPod Touch, iPad, Blackberry or Android to receive up-to-the-minute news alerts and other breaking information as it occurs during the three-day farm show.
“The Sunbelt Ag Expo mobile app was produced by Penton Custom Media and has been used at some of the largest trade shows in the nation,” says Greg Frey, vice-president at Penton Media and publisher of Farm Press. “We had a successful launch of the app at the 2011 Sunbelt Ag Expo, and we believe the improvements made in the past two years will further enhance participants’ experience at the show.”
Farm Press, a member of the Agricultural Group at Penton Media, publishes Southeast Farm Press, Delta Farm Press, Southwest Farm Press and Western Farm Press. Southeast Farm Press is an official sponsor of the Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition and publishes the official show program and the Sunbelt Expo Field Day Guide.
