World Dairy Expo has announced that after thorough consideration, World Dairy Expo 2021 will remain in Madison, Wis.
The 54th edition of the event is scheduled for Expo’s historic home, the Alliant Energy Center, Sept. 28 – Oct. 2, 2021.
The announcement comes after contingency planning and consideration of alternative venues.
“The clarity that Expo’s leaders sought from Dane County officials regarding the path forward for responsibly and safely hosting World Dairy Expo 2021 at the Alliant Energy Center has come to fruition,” said Bill Hageman, WDE Board President. “We are grateful for the patience and commitment to World Dairy Expo exhibited by our stakeholders and the dairy community throughout this process. Expo is excited for Madison to once again be the place where the global dairy industry meets!”
Discussions regarding the contract extension proposed by Dane County in early March concerning World Dairy Expo’s use of the Alliant Energy Center, a county-owned facility, will take place over the coming months.
Serving as the meeting place of the global dairy industry, World Dairy Expo brings together the latest in dairy innovation and the best cattle in North America. The event draws crowds of 60,000 people, from nearly 100 countries.
