The Cattle Industry Annual Convention and NCBA Trade Show is one of the industry’s biggest events each year, bringing together cattlemen and cattlewomen from across the nation to do the work of our industry, normally held at the end of January. But next year, thanks to the pandemic, the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) has decided to postpone the in-person event to August 2021. NCBA will still hold some of its traditional business meetings in the January or February time frame, in accordance with the association’s bylaws.
“Decisions of this magnitude, which impact multiple organizations, stakeholders and companies, are never easy. However, the limits on the number of people who can gather at an event in Nashville and the travel restrictions facing many trade show exhibitors, makes it impossible for us to put on the world-class event our attendees expect this winter,” said NCBA CEO Colin Woodall.
Originally scheduled for February 3-5, 2021, the convention and trade show will now take place August 10-12, 2021. While the event may have a new date, both the convention and trade show will continue to take place at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.
