With irrigation and agriculture technology on full display at Husker Harvest Days, the show attracts visitors not only from the region and across the nation, but also from abroad.
That’s why Colby Angst, an export development consultant with the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, says he is excited about this year’s opportunities for international visitors.
The International Visitors Center, located just across Main Street from the Nebraska Farmer Hospitality Tent, serves as a place for international visitors to connect with agencies and agriculture businesses in Nebraska and the United States.
“It’s fair to say HHD is one of the best exhibits the companies put up to display their new technology and tools, and it’s one of the best places for folks to come and learn about,” says Matt Jungmann, Farm Progress national events director. “It would be great if we can attract growers all over the world to HHD.”
“Having an International Visitors Center on-site allows guests from around the world to perhaps sit down with specific company representatives,” Angst says.
Although there is no set programming for the center, international visitors to the show are invited to stop by to schedule working meetings to help facilitate and negotiate new business opportunities.
So far, the International Visitors Center is expecting delegations from Germany and Africa. By the time the show begins, there will most likely be attendees from many more countries.
All international visitors, or those wanting to meet with international guests, are welcome to stop by the visitors center. Relax, cool off and learn about opportunities for international trade and business.
