About the Nebraska Ag Expo and ExpoEDU Stage

As the second largest indoor ag show in the country, the Nebraska Ag Expo attracts more than 10,000 attendees and 760 exhibitors each year. Held in December, it appeals to producers and exhibitors alike, with growers and ranchers taking advantage of year-end buying specials and exhibitors looking to sell. The Nebraska Ag Expo is December 10-12, 2024 at the Sandhills Global Event Center in Lincoln.

The ExpoEDU stage was built in 2022 to allow attendees to dive deeper into their specific topics of interest. The ExpoEDU stage is located in the South Hall – Livestock Market Pavilion of the Sandhills Global Event Center, and the speaker sessions are included with attendees’ admission to the Nebraska Ag Expo. Presentations are also recorded and shared with the public on YouTube and social media after the Nebraska Ag Expo.

“The larger-than-life ExpoEDU stage area brings the presentations out of the closed-door seminar rooms and out in the open where folks eating lunch can listen to ag experts talk about everything from autonomous equipment, robotics, soil health, organic farming, precision ranching, climate, and the carbon market,” said Marketing Director Cindy Feldman. “There is seating for 57 people under the arches, but four monitors surround the stage area and allow more folks in the peripheral area to listen and engage also.”
