The newest version of the Commodity Classic app for smartphones and tablets has been released, well in advance of the 20th Commodity Classic, to be held Feb. 26-28 in Phoenix, Ariz. The new app, which can be downloaded via one's operating system’s app store, enables attendees to plan their entire schedule during Commodity Classic.
The app will be updated automatically and continually between now and the 2015 Commodity Classic, with fresh information on sponsors, trade show floor events, locations for sessions and exhibits, and other up-to-the-minute information.
The 20th edition of Commodity Classic—the nation's largest farmer-led, farmer-focused convention and trade show—opens in just 75 days in Phoenix, the site of the very first Commodity Classic in 1996. Registration is now open for event.
"We expect to break a number of records in Phoenix in terms of both attendees and exhibitors as Commodity Classic returns to its roots," said soybean farmer Sam Butler of Alabama, Commodity Classic Co-Chair. "With the new Commodity Classic app, attendees can easily keep track of the tremendous line-up of educational sessions, outstanding speakers and a huge trade show. And this year, we'll be adding a number of special events and activities related to the celebration of the 20th Commodity Classic."
For a complete listing of the 2015 educational sessions, conference information, and to register online, visit www.CommodityClassic.com. Money-saving early registration ends Jan. 15. "With the new app, people planning to attend Commodity Classic can begin creating their schedule right now—months in advance of getting to Phoenix," Butler added.
Commodity Classic will continue to be the premier convention and trade show of the National Corn Growers Association, American Soybean Association, National Association of Wheat Growers and National Sorghum Producers. Starting in 2016, the Association of Equipment Manufacturers and many of its members will be joining the event.
