THIS YEAR AT THE 2019 Sunbelt Ag Expo, you can get more out of
your experience than ever before with the 2019 Sunbelt Ag Expo
The mobile app provides a central location for detailed
information about the Sunbelt Ag Expo. On the app, attendees will
find valuable information about scheduled events, new features at
the show, educational sessions, maps of the Expo grounds, social
media content, and more.
Greg Frey, vice president of Farm Progress, says, “this is a robust,
informational app that will make your visit at the Ag Expo more
comprehensive and enjoyable.”
Extensive research was conducted so the Sunbelt Ag Expo app
would be the premier show app in the country to accompany
North America’s Premier Farm Show. The app’s creators worked
closely with the Expo’s staff and adopted new technologies that
were made available this year in order to create the most user-
friendly, and enjoyable, app as possible.
New updates and features on the app include frequent page
refreshes to update any changes on the schedule, user-friendly
navigation, and outside content feeds. The social segment within the
app shines brighter than ever before for Sunbelt Ag Expo, providing
the ultimate hub for the show’s information as it is happening.
“There is so much that they would miss without the app; the
list is endless. I would encourage everyone to download the app
and become a member of the Sunbelt Ag Expo Community, North
America’s Premier Farm Show, with exclusive features not found in
other farm show apps,” Frey says.
The Sunbelt Ag Expo invites everyone to download the mobile
app in order to get the most out of their experience before, during,
and after the show.

Credit. Students bring to Expo their creations
of wood and metal projects they made in their
Farm Credit exhibit (location B- 9).

Mechanics Project contest last year.
One expo FFA tradition that goes back a
number of years is the annual tire auction held
at the Titan/Goodyear exhibit (location A- 3) to
benefit the Georgia FFA Foundation.
The foundation uses these funds to help cover

FFA members taking part in career development and leadership development events.
The funds are especially helpful in covering
the expenses for Georgia FFA members
taking part in national competitive events.
This year, the tire auction will take place
Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 1 p.m. at the Titan/
Goodyear exhibit. Members of the Georgia
FFA Foundation will be present at the Titan/
Goodyear exhibit Tuesday to answer any
