94th National FFA Convention & Expo to be hosted in person
The National FFA Organization announced that the 94th National FFA Convention & Expo will be hosted in person this fall in the city of Indianapolis. The event, which traditionally brings more than 65,000 attendees, will take place Oct. 27-30.
“We are excited to come back to the great city of Indianapolis that has been such a gracious host to us in years past,” said Mandy Hazlett, associate director of convention and events at the National FFA Organization. “We know convention will look a bit different this year, but we are excited to offer this opportunity to our student members once again.”
In 2020, the organization canceled the in-person event due to the COVID-19 pandemic and instead offered a virtual experience.
