Visit the Displays, Talk to the Experts, Attend the Special Events, and Learn About New Products with Carport Central at the 2019 Southern Farm Show!
No doubt anyone that has any interest in the agricultural industry looks forward to late January / early February and the return of the Southern Farm Show to the NC State Fairgrounds! Over 400 exhibiting companies make the Southern Farm Show the largest agricultural exposition in the Carolinas and Virginia; it’s known as THE meeting place for this region’s farmers and agricultural leaders. Free admission and parking make this a can’t-miss tradition, and this year’s lineup of exhibits and events is sure to have something for everyone who attends.
The Southern Farm Show allows exhibitors from every category to come together in one central location to display all they have to offer to the agricultural community. It’s also a great opportunity to speak with experts and representatives, ask important questions, and network with like-minded farmers and farm supply businesses.
There’s A LOT to see at the Southern Farm Show! Two things you’ll definitely want to have handy are the farm show event schedule (available here) and the show exhibitor map (you can pick this up at the event entrance when you arrive).
The over 400 exhibitors that will set up shop at the 2019 Southern Farm Show represent almost every aspect of farming and agriculture you can think of, including some things you’ve probably never even seen before! These include all types of equipment, a full selection of vehicles, different types of buildings and land development options, feed and seed suppliers, farm accessories, and so much more. As we like to say, if you can’t find it at the Southern Farm Show, then you won’t find it anywhere!
Besides attending scheduled events at the 2019 Southern Farm Show, there are lots of reasons you should also carve out some time to stroll through the exhibits:
The government may still be shut down, but Carport Central understands you’ve still got chickens to feed, fields to plow, and a farm or agricultural business to maintain. We’re here to help!
The team at Carport Central is excited about returning to exhibit at the Southern Farm Show (Exhibit #8612), as it gives us a great opportunity to connect with old friends and also make some new ones! We’re pretty pumped to be able to show you all we have to offer with our wide selection of carports, garages, barns, RV covers, workshops, and agricultural buildings. We know that when it comes to protecting your vehicles, farm equipment, livestock, feed, and supplies, you need a durable, versatile structure that’s built to last. Carport Central has extensive experience in designing, crafting, and installing metal buildings for the unique challenges of farm and agricultural applications, and we can help you design a custom steel structure that will match your individual needs and your budget, too! Be sure to stop by and see us at Exhibit #8612, we’d love to meet you!
At Carport Central, we provide shelter for your way of life.
