NCBA Postpones the Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show

The NCBA has postponed its Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show from February 3-5, 2021, to August 10-12, 2021, a release from the group announced. Though the event has a new date, it will not move from the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee.

The challenges of bringing together large groups of people safely during the COVID-19 pandemic were a factor in the decision, though the NCBA will still hold some of its traditional business meetings in January or February in accordance with the association’s bylaws, the release says.

“Decisions of this magnitude, which impact multiple organizations, stakeholders and companies, are never easy. However, the limits on the number of people who can gather at an event in Nashville and the travel restrictions facing many trade show exhibitors, makes it impossible for us to put on the world-class event our attendees and exhibitors expect this winter,” said NCBA CEO Colin Woodall, in the release.
