Indianapolis – At a press conference, Governor Mike Pence thanked the National FFA Organization for bringing their National Convention & Expo back home again to Indianapolis through the year 2024, a move expected to generate more than $300 million in economic impact.
“Indiana is ready and committed to support this event and welcome with open arms the 64,000 FFA delegates who will come to Indianapolis each of the next several years,” said Governor Pence. “Combined with the convenient access of being at the Crossroads of America and Indiana’s famous Hoosier hospitality, our state and its capital city are well-suited to host this incredible group of future leaders in the global agriculture industry.”
The Governor was joined by Lieutenant Governor Sue Ellspermann, Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard, National FFA Organization Chair Dr. Steve Brown, and Michael Browning, Chairman of the Board for Visit Indy, as well as student members of the National FFA Organization.
