I just have to post this here on AgWired since I really like bagpipes. My sister played them for our high school “Kiltie Band.”
You always have to celebrate the end of the first day at a farm show. World Dairy Expo is no different. The exhibitor reception was sponsored by Hoard’s Dairyman. Isn’t this a great looking group?
While I was in the media room here at World Dairy Expo a little while ago I found out about next year’s “theme”. It’s already designed and they were providing us with posters. So here’s your first look at next year’s theme – Dairy Central. Let me know what you think!
You never know who you’ll see when you go to a farm show. I’m here blogging the World Dairy Expo (World Dairy Diary) and the booth next to my little office is for the Southwest Plains Dairy Directory. I posted an announcement about it here on AgWired recently. And the person who’s working the exhibit is Kathy Cornett, Chairman of McCormick Company and a past president of the National Agri-Marketing Association I might add.
It’s pretty warm and humid here in Madison, WI at World Dairy Expo. I’m very proud and happy with my little office (The Fishbowl) in the Coliseum. This used to be the receptionists office and now I guess it just serves as a communications equipment hub. Anyway, this is where I’ll be giving you some World Dairy Expo updates. You can see a lot more on World Dairy Diary!
What kind of public relations people would we be if we didn’t do a talking news release about our own project eh? So of course we sent one out on World Dairy Diary, our very own farm show blog and the “Official blog of World Dairy Expo.” I’ll be posting here on AgWired from Expo next week but you can already see and hear plenty on World Dairy Diary!
How’d you like to be responsible for all the media and marketing for a farm show that attracts about 65,000 people? We’re talking international reporters and visitors. Well in the case of World Dairy Expo it’s all the work of Lisa Behnke, Marketing Manager (pictured to the right of yours truly). She’s hard at work now getting ready for all the media representatives who will be covering Expo. Of course she also does other things and I think you’ll be able to tell from my interview with her that she’s proud of World Dairy Expo and committed to making it even better.
