The 2014 Kubota National Meeting was held at the Opryland Hotel and Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn., and featured country music performances.
The theme was “A New Era” and the gathering place was the Opryland Hotel and Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn., for the Kubota 2014 National Dealer Meeting. Approximately 4,000 Kubota dealers and employees from the United States and Canada made their way to the event Oct. 12 to 16 for the unveiling of several major new product introductions. This was the first time that the Canadian-affiliate Kubota Canada Ltd., joined the U.S. based Kubota Tractor Corporation for its annual meeting and the first time in 10 years that the North American press representatives were in attendance. Executives from the global parent company, Kubota Corporation, Osaka, Japan also were in attendance.

“This is one of the largest introductions of Kubota-branded products in our company’s history, including significant additions and enhancements to our turf, agricultural and construction segments,” said Todd Stucke, vice president-agricultural and turf division of Kubota. “Many of our introductions will be real game changers for our dealers and for the industry as a whole, so this year’s dealer meeting marks an important moment in time for Kubota.”
