National FFA Convention Attendance Explodes to 62,998 in Louisville Attendance at the 2013 National FFA Convention & Expo rose to 62,998, up from 56,176 attendees last year when the event was held in Indianapolis.


Students, teachers and guests stayed in 136 hotels for 39,247 combined room nights within a 75-mile radius of Louisville throughout the week, infusing more than $40 million into the local economy.


“We’re thrilled with the reception and outstanding hospitality that has been extended to us by the city, everywhere from Kentucky Exposition Hall all the way through downtown and beyond,” said Mandy Hazlett, senior convention manager with the National FFA Organization. “Our students and guests greatly enjoyed the comforts the city of Louisville has offered and are looking forward to returning next year.”


The 87th National FFA Convention & Expo returns to Louisville next year Oct. 29-Nov. 1.


The National FFA Organization provides leadership, personal growth and career success training through agricultural education to 579,678 student members in grades seven through 12 who belong to one of 7,570 local FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
