Hotels Booked For Farm Progress Show

Posted:

Decatur - Hotels in Decatur are booked for the Farm Progress show August 27-29.

"It's the largest farming show in the United States," Teri Hammel of the Decatur Convention & Visitors Bureau told WAND News.  "The (economic) impact is just unbelievable.  Gas, Food.  Even places like Rural King and Farm & Fleet.  They get attendees who come and want to see what do you have in the United States."

Getting a hotel room in the city will be tough.  The Decatur conference Center & Hotel is booked.  "It is a sell out which is great because we sit on 370 rooms," said Susan Keane of the Conference Center.  The hotel is sending guests to its sister properties in Champaign & Springfield.

Decatur has also worked out an agreement with Eastland Suites in Bloomington.  People can book a room in that hotel and take a shuttle to the Farm Progress Show in Decatur.

The 2013 Farm Progress Show takes place at Progress City on the Campus of Richland Community College.
