National Farm Machinery Show ranks in the top 10 for largest dollar generator in Louisville.

The National Farm Machinery Show and its over 300,000 attendees will take over Louisville this month during the largest indoor farm trade show in the country. The annual show, coming up on its 58th year, ranks in the top 10 for 2024 events bringing in the most dollars to the city.

According to Louisville Tourism, the National Farm Machinery Show and its counterpart, the Championship Tractor Pull, rank 6th on its list of events in Louisville with the largest estimated economic impact. The show is poised to pull in over $24.2 million. Along with that, the show is one of a handful of Louisville events that creates heavy hotel room occupancy, which reaches more than 90% during the show.

“We are proud to be among the top events in Louisville, ranked with events like the Kentucky Derby and the PGA Tour,” said David S. Beck, President & CEO of Kentucky Venues. “While our trade show is all about bringing the best in the field together, we take great pride in knowing the National Farm Machinery Show is also positively impacting Louisville and the Commonwealth.”

The National Farm Machinery Show and the Championship Tractor Pull take place at the Kentucky Exposition Center and Freedom Hall where the venue will fill with tractors, balers, sprayers, and more. The event runs February 14-17, 2024.
