Commodity Classic is the annual convention and trade show of the wheat, corn, soybeans and sorghum industries, and a place for much of the agriculture community to gather and discuss everything from the latest equipment and technology to pressing policy issues. The National Association of Wheat Growers has made Classic its annual meeting since 2007.
The 2013 Commodity Classic is scheduled for Feb. 26 – March 2, 2013, in Kissimmee, Fla.
Housing and Registration
Two important components of attending Commodity Classic are housing and registration.
Housing reservations are available online here. Classic housing is in VERY high demand, so NAWG recommends making reservations as soon as possible.
All Classic attendees must also register, which can be done here. NAWG encourages all wheat-related attendees to note their affiliation with the Association on their registration form.
