Grain Industry's Largest Event Hits Kansas City

New technologies, new connections to be found at GEAPS Exchange 2022

The Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS) is looking forward to seeing grain industry professionals gather in the heart of America during GEAPS Exchange 2022, which will be held March 26-29 at the Kansas City Convention Center in Kansas City, MO.

The conference includes an expo hall filled with technology and services to make grain operations safer and more efficient, education on the latest trends and best practices, a day just for students, and social events that help reinforce business relationships.

“One of my favorite things about the conference is the opportunity to see our peers and network in person,” says GEAPS International President Barb Grove, CGOM, Central Valley Ag. “I’m excited to see all the new products in the industry, catch up on best practices and make new connections to help my company.”

Be Seen & Win $100!

Nothing’s more exciting than the thrill of victory, especially when the prize is cold, hard cash. If you’re attending the GEAPS Exchange conference and trade show in Kansas City from March 26-29, you may be lucky enough to experience just that!

Each day of the expo, Feed & Grain will be giving away $100 to two attendees on the trade show floor. All you need to do is get caught wearing a neon yellow safety vest that will be handed out at Feed & Grain’s Exchange Booth 1612.

Vests will be available to pick up any time during trade show hours, but no one knows when our staff will surprise an unsuspecting vested attendee with the cash prize.

Entrants must be fully wearing the vest at the time of the giveaway to be eligible. In addition to receiving $100, the winner will be photographed at our booth and announced on social media.

The contest is not only a fun way for Feed & Grain staff to engage with you at the show, but also to encourage grain handling workers to start every shift by focusing on personal safety.
