The GEAPS Exchange is an annual International Technical Conference and Exposition. Each year thousands of attendees gather at the conference to learn about the latest topics affecting the industry and explore innovative new products and services in the Expo Hall.  The location of the Exchange changes from year to year.

Last year in Kansas City, Missouri the Exchange drew 3,589 attendees from 20 countries, and set records with 439 exhibitors in 270,950 square feet of exhibit space. 

Attendees come from all aspects of the grain industry, including suppliers and those in the grain handling and processing industry. Operations professionals include those directly engaged in grain handling, feed, milling and processing operations. Suppliers represent businesses or organizations that supply equipment, products or services to the grain handling, feed, milling and processing industries. The annual conference also draws safety professionals, government officials and academia related to the industry. It is also an excellent opportunity for students seeking degrees related to grain handling, milling, feed and processing industries to make connections in the industry.

The Colorado Convention Center has a large, 1,000-space, covered parking garage. It is open 24/7. The entrance is on Northbound Speer Blvd, between Stout and Champa Streets. For rates and additional details, visit the Colorado Convention Center Parking page.
