Exhibitor and Sponsor Registration

Your commitment to exhibit or sponsor helps MGGA continue to be the voice of Montana wheat and barley producers both nationally and statewide and marks your business as a supporter of Montana’s #1 industry. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you in Great Falls in December!

Supporting MGGA’s Annual Convention & Trade Show makes good sense!

  • There’s plenty of time to network with attendees
    • Exposure to more than 800 wheat and barley producers and agribusiness decision makers
    • Two trade show breaks per day plus two evening receptions allow more interaction between agribusiness and producers
  • Your business name is listed in the convention program, trade show & sponsor guide, on-line sponsor page linked to your website and two issues of the Montana Grain News with vocal billing and signage at each sponsored event
