NCBA Moves 2021 Convention to August

The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association is the latest ag organization to change the 2021 meeting schedule due to COVID-19. In a letter to event participants, the organization announced the Cattle Industry Convention will move to August 2021, delayed from February. NCBA CEO Colin Woodall says, “the limits on the number of people who can gather at an event in Nashville and the travel restrictions facing many trade show exhibitors, makes it impossible for us to put on the world-class event.” Originally scheduled for February 3-5, the convention and trade show will now take place August 10-12, 2021. NCBA will hold some of its traditional business meetings in the January or February timeframe, in accordance with the association’s bylaws. The event is one of many originally scheduled for early 2021 that is changing the meeting landscape for agriculture. The American Farm Bureau Federation earlier this month announced its annual convention will be virtual, planned for January 10-13, 2021.
