"Unmasking Opportunities"The Idaho Cattle Association’s Annual Convention will showcase a trade show, educational seminars on topics related to our industry, and the traditional President’s Banquet. The trade show will open at 2 p.m. on Monday, giving vendors extra time to mingle with attendees. There will also be a 45 minute Trade Show session on Tuesday that gives all attendees an extra opportunity to network with exhibitors.
As in the past, the Idaho Cattle Association Annual Convention and Trade Show is a worthwhile opportunity to bring Idaho’s cattle industry together for information, education, marketing, and networking. This year that tradition continues at the Ford Idaho Center in Nampa, Idaho. We may have had to change the location due to COVID-19 restrictions, but this convenient and centrally located venue provides ample opportunities to market and network with producers throughout the Treasure Valley and across the state.
Please plan now to attend, and return your support form to the ICA office by November 1st to guarantee the lowest prices, best placement of your trade show booth and maximum exposure to your event support. All supporters will be recognized in the convention program, by on-site signage, and in the Line Rider magazine.
