San Diego Will Host 118th Cattle Industry Convention
More than 6,000 people involved in the cattle industry are expected to “Set Sail for San Diego” to attend the 2016 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show to be in San Diego, Calif., Jan. 27-29. The convention and trade show create a unique, fun environment for cattle industry members to come together to network, create policy for the industry and to have some fun.
The 2016 convention marks the 118th annual convention, which has grown to become the largest cattle industry event in the country, featuring the joint and individual meetings of five industry organizations:
- National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA)
- Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion & Research Board (CBB)
- American National CattleWomen Inc. (ANCW)
- National Cattlemen’s Foundation (NCF)
Registration and housing for the 2016 convention opened Oct. 5. Advanced registration is open until Jan. 4, 2016. Convention participants will hear from industry leaders, gather insight on industry trends, enjoy an evening of stars and stripes on the USS Midway and this year’s Cowboy Concert Series will feature Martina McBride.
NCBA President Philip Ellis said this convention is a must for everyone involved in the cattle industry.
“The Cattle Industry Convention is the oldest and largest, national convention in the cattle business,” Ellis said. “We look forward to another great meeting in an outstanding location. Once again, NCBA will have one of the largest trade shows in agriculture, with 350 companies exhibiting on nearly 6 acres of show floor. Between the USO show on the USS Midway and Martina McBride, our entertainment will be outstanding.”
In addition to access to all of the 2016 convention events, registrants for the full convention will receive a 50% off coupon for Roper and Stetson apparel and footwear at the NCBA Trade Show.
