Sunbelt Expo 2017

The Sunbelt Ag Expo

Known as “North America’s Premier Farm Show”® this annual event is scheduled for October 17th thru the 19th, 2017. The Expo has over 1,200 exhibitors showcasing the latest in farming technology with attendance estimated at over 80,000 visitors.

Where else can you meet thousands of potential customers and clients?

The SeAA Alpaca Pavilion in Moultrie, GA provides SeAA members the opportunity to promote their farms and alpacas.

The Alpaca Pavilion

The permanent pavilion has pens, electricity, water, and circulating fans overhead. There are 16 pens available with 8 pens on each side and a large alleyway in the middle to set up your farm display. The 10’ x 16’ pens have dirt floors with straw bedding available for no extra fees.

NOTE: All Alpacas that attend are required to have a current CVI, dated within 30 days from the last day of the expo (10/19/2017).

With easy access from Gate #4, the alpaca pavilion is located in the livestock area in Section F-8. On Monday October 16th, set up starts at 8:00am and ends at 5:00pm. You can pull your trailer right next to the Pavilion to unload. There will be no additional drive-ins or set-ups after Monday! Breakdown will take place on Thursday, October 19th, after 4:00pm when the expo closes.

 

The Store, Demos, and Seminars

The back third of the Pavilion is set aside for the SeAA store, display, demos, and seminars. Bring your farm store wares to offer for sale and reap the benefits! Members are charged a nominal 10% commission on the sales. You MUST HAVE double price tags with your farm name and price on all items brought to the store for sale.

Volunteers are needed to work in the store, perform demonstrations, and provide seminars.

We are in the process of lining up Alpacas and Fiber Enthusiasts to cover grading/sorting, skirting, carding, hand-spinning, and finished products including crocheted, knitted, felted and commercially produced items.
