World Dairy Expo Cancels 2020 Event

For the first time in its 53-year history, World Dairy Expo has been cancelled.

The expo’s leadership based the decision on public health orders and restrictions related to COVID-19.

The show was scheduled for Sept. 29 to Oct. 3 in Madison, Wis. The annual event welcomed more than 62,000 attendees from nearly 100 countries in 2019.

“Our collective heart is heavy as we share with you that World Dairy Expo 2020 has been cancelled,” said General Manager Scott Bentley. “We know how much this hurts; we feel it, too. Please know other options were explored and considered by the World Dairy Expo Executive Committee and staff.”
