The Expo

NAILE is the largest all-breed, purebred livestock exposition in the nation, with nearly 30,000 entries and more than 140 competitions spanning 17 days and 10 different species. It’s here that global industry standards are established, with breeders merchandising bloodlines and genetics to local and international interests.
Catch the Quarter Horse Show at Broadbent Arena or the North American Championship Rodeo in Freedom Hall. NAILE is also an excellent place to get some holiday shopping done. Take a walk down the aisles of the Giant Country Store β€” and take your pick from nearly 150 vendors selling everything from fine jewelry and furniture to western wear and farm supplies.

The International Visitors Center

Each year visitors from nearly two dozen countries attend NAILE, and the International Visitors Center is the hospitality hub that connects global travelers with a variety of services. Visitors may use the international room on a walk-in basis. Advance notification is recommended for any specific services or requests β€” such as language interpretation or farm tours β€” to ensure their availability.
