“A North American Agri-Business Tradition” is returning to the heart of Kansas once again. The 3i Show pays homage to Industry, Implements, and Irrigation and has grown into a nationally recognized event. Each year, more than 1,000 companies set up shop to showcase their wares, and this year the Overhead Door Company of Garden City will be one of them.
The Western Kansas Manufacturers Association was founded in July of 1949. Meetings were held in Pratt, Kansas, at the Hotel Roberts to promote the general welfare of agricultural and industrial businesses in the area. The show began as a small, traveling event to create awareness; the first official 3i Show was in 1953. Tractors without cabs were the latest technological marvel back in 1950, vastly different than the drones and large combines that have been showcased in recent years.
With more than 500 exhibits, the 3i Show will feature a variety of items showcased including: crop protection information, cattle handling equipment, farm machinery, industrial products, and, of course, the Overhead Door Company. A congressional forum will also be held during the event. There are plenty of entertainment options, including Vintage Saturday, a variety of food vendors, a pickup truck ride & drive area, and educational fun. The 3i Show includes free admission and parking, along with free transportation from the airport
