2019 National Angus Convention and Trade Show

We are gearing up for an exciting 2019 Angus Convention held Nov. 2-4 in Reno, Nevada. This industry-leading event is known for bringing exceptional speakers, hands-on learning and country music entertainment to the attendees every November. We are headed out West for the first time ever, and wanted to personally invite you and your students to the Angus Convention. With a focus on the next generation of cattlemen and women, we are excited to announce that we have made registration FREE for youth under 21 years of age (and college students)!  I believe your students will benefit greatly from the education offered, seeing the innovative ideas in the trade show and being able to network with several key members in the agricultural industry not to mention the entertainment that we will have Sunday evening, Flatland Cavalry.  This opportunity includes a Certified Angus Beef® lunch and dinner on both Saturday and Sunday too! 

We would also like to extend an invitation to exhibit in our trade show at a discounted rate. The trade show floor is known as the epicenter of the Angus Convention, and we would love to highlight colleges in the West at our bustling trade show.  I think this would be an ideal year to exhibit as I am inviting several FFA and 4-H organizations within the surrounding area due to the free registrations for 21 and under.  This would be a great opportunity for your school to be in front of so many young adults.   

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or if you have suggestions of other youth or universities that would benefit from receiving this notification too.
