General Information

NOVEMBER 15-17, 2021 | SUN VALLEY, IDAHO
**Online and Early Registration will close on 10/29/21 at 11:59 p.m.**

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 10:00 am Monday, giving vendors extra time to mingle with attendees. Monday’s dinner will allow participants the opportunity to stroll through the booths and learn more about your products and services. It is our goal to give you ample opportunities to market and network with producers during convention.

The meetings hosted by the Idaho Cattle Association have continued to grow and each year we report record-setting attendance. We anticipate breaking the record again this year with an excess of 600 attendees over the three-day conference. 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 will continue that tradition.

Please plan now to attend, and return your support form to the ICA office by October 29 to guarantee the lowest prices, best placement of your trade show booth and maximum exposure to your event support. As you know, there are many different expenses to consider when coordinating an event such as this. All supporters will be recognized in the convention program, by on-site signage, and in the Line Rider magazine.
