2023 Career & Trade Shows

2023 IOWA AGRICULTURAL CAREER SHOW

Annual Iowa FFA State Leadership Conference

Scheman Building – Iowa State Center, Ames, Iowa

April 17-18, 2023

 

What is the Iowa Agricultural Career Show?

The Iowa Agricultural Career Show is held annually as part of the Iowa FFA Leadership Conference. Each year 6,500+ student FFA members, advisors, parents, sponsors and guests travel to this conference to celebrate the achievements of FFA across the state of Iowa during the previous year. While at the conference, students take time to interact with exhibitors in the career show, helping students to understand the agricultural industry and gain valuable information regarding their career path. While many students are not of the age where they may participate in internships or be actively seeking full-time employment, students take an active role understanding the various components of each career pathway while trying to gain an understanding about how they can achieve their career goals.

Why should I exhibit at the Iowa Agricultural Career Show?

The Iowa Agricultural Career Show is an incredible opportunity to interact directly with 6,500+ students who attend the show. Are you interested in getting your company’s brand immediately recognized by a targeted core group of individuals? Do you need individuals prepared to join your workforce in the coming years?
