2015 NCBA Trade Show
Texas-Sized Entertainment, Education and Events at the 2015 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show
Still on the fence about attending the 2015 Cattle Industry Convention and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Trade Show February 4-7 in San Antonio?
Deemed by producers as the “can’t miss” event of the year, the Cattle Industry Convention is the oldest and largest convention for the beef business. Join fellow ranchers for a week filled with entertainment, education and events as large as the great state of Texas!
Kicking off the 2015 Convention during the Opening General Session is internationally-recognized graffiti artist and best-selling business author, Erik Wahl. Creating masterpieces right before your eyes in “The Art of Vision,” Wahl will captivate his audience by demonstrating how cattle producers can become better storytellers for their individual business and the industry as a whole.
Prices for all classes of cattle set record highs in 2014. Will the higher trend continue in 2015? Find out the answer and much more at the always-popular CattleFax U.S. & Global Protein and Grain Outlook Seminar Thursday morning.
Help celebrate Gallagher North America’s company roots in its Return to San Antonio Celebration all week long at booth #6017. Stop by to share your well wishes, enter one of the daily drawings and learn about an exciting new product graziers are sure to love. Join the party Friday morning during a meet and greet with members of the country music band Restless Heart.
Drop by NCBA Trade Show’s newest exhibit – the Cattle Barn. Cow/calf producers and breeders from across Texas and the country will showcase their respective breeds and discuss the economic advantages or improvements these breeds can offer any beef operation. The Cattle Barn also features a celebrity bull from American Bucking Bull, Inc.
A trade show tradition, the commemorative convention poster is a must-have souvenir. Pick up your 2015 print, “Trailing Through the Brush,” at the Merial, Ltd. booth (#6037). Meet this year’s artist, Edgar Sotelo, and have your keepsake signed.
Take advantage of one of San Antonio’s unique features before and after visiting the convention center each day. Enjoy a stroll along the city’s famous River Walk or admire the view right from your table during a delicious meal by the water’s edge.
To locate a meeting room in the convention center, or to join the festivities at one of the many events during the week, visit the NCBA Information Booth sponsored by Gallagher North America and Rabo AgriFinance. Conveniently located, the information booth is fully staffed by friendly and knowledgeable NCBA employees to get you back on the right trail again.
Rich in history and Texas charm, the city of San Antonio offers must-see attractions just steps away from the Henry B. González Convention Center. You’ll want to remember to visit the Alamo in between informative industry meetings and fun-filled NCBA events.
You might be a redneck if you miss out on comedy genius, Jeff Foxworthy headlining the Friday evening Cowboy Comedy Club. Following the show, you won’t want to miss classic country swing dance band, Asleep at the Wheel at the Mustache Bash After-Party. Plan to stay out late celebrating at this grand finale event to mark the end of a fun and successful Convention!
