2018 show canceled, 2019 plan in works

After careful consideration, EO Media Events, LLC and Capital Press has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2018 Northwest Ag Show. EO Media Events, LLC acquired the Northwest Ag Show earlier this year. Based on feedback from long-time vendors, it became apparent that holding the show in North Portland presents challenges that have hindered its success, particularly in regards to attendance.
We apologize to our show vendors, partners, sponsors and attendees for any inconvenience that this decision will cause. Please know that this decision was not made lightly as we recognize the 48-year legacy of the Northwest Ag Show and of Jim and Shirley Heater, the show’s founders, and Amy and Mike Patrick, the show’s long-time managers. The Heaters and Patricks have worked diligently over the years to make it the largest in the Northwest. Our intent is to continue the tradition of a high quality, well-attended show as we look forward to 2019. 
We are evaluating the feedback and suggestions from vendors and the Ag community to develop a new approach to the show to make it a better investment for vendors and for attendees. If you have suggestions and ideas about the show, we’d love to hear from you. Contact us at events@eomediagroup.com or call 800-882-6789.
