International Agribusiness

The National Western International Agribusiness department hosts over 500 international guests from over 30 countries during the annual Stock Show and works to build relationships between those guests and the ambassadors who support our international efforts. We strive to also provide educational programming geared to our international guests interests as well as students and producers with an interest in International agribusiness.

The Center was established in 1984 to encourage and foster overseas sales of livestock and livestock products. Staffed by volunteers, the center will provide a social, educational, and comfortable setting for international visitors to access throughout the 16 days.   The center also provides a chance for brief rest, quick meeting, impromptu gathering or trade development. Wi-Fi, Computer/ printer access, International and local phone services, fax/ photocopy capabilities and light complimentary refreshments are all available in the Center.
