World Ag Expo is about forging new connections with people who can open doors to new opportunities, says Expo volunteer chairman Stephen Cunha, a pistachio grower who has volunteered at the Expo for 36 years.

New for 2014 is the Exhibitor Showcase in the World Ag Expo Arena which features the latest and greatest agricultural products in one place. Take a seat in the Arena for one of the shows scheduled throughout each day. The World Ag Expo Arena is located in the southwest corner of the show grounds, just west of Pavilion D.

To help maximize the Expo experience, visitors can download the free 2014 World Ag Expo smartphone app developed by the International Agri-Center and Penton-Western Farm Press.
