The Sunbelt Expo extends its greetings, congratulations and appreciation to the companies and organizations listed below that have exhibited during each year of the Expo’s 40 years to date.
Along with the Expo itself, these exhibiting firms have grown and prospered over the past 40 years. Like the farming industry in the Southeast, these companies and organizations are resilient. Many of them credit their own growth to their exhibits over the years at Expo. Through the ups and downs of the farm economy, these businesses and organizations have stayed in close touch with the agricultural market in the Southeast.
A few of these companies may have changed their names, but they are the same firms that have been at Expo during each of the past 40 years. You’ll find that several of these exhibitors are in the same locations this year as they were in during the first Expo in 1978.
“We are so proud that they have been with us as our friends for these 40 past years,” says Expo director Chip Blalock. “These companies and organizations have contributed greatly to the agricultural progress of the southern U.S. during the past 40 years.”
Blalock says, “Agriculture will always have its challenges, but the future of farming and agriculture remains bright. And I am confident that many of these companies that have exhibited with us for the past 40 years will still be coming back to the Expo 40 years from now.”
