The congress had a record attendance of vegetable and fruit growers, agritourism businesses, and vendors who serve them. The exhibit hall had vendors overflowing into the hallway , and included project resources, publications, and examples of assistive technology for attendees. The display emphasized arthritis and agriculture through publications and resources.

The Indiana AgrAbility Project exhibited at the 2012 Fort Wayne Farm Show on January 17-19. Mild weather much of the week helped to draw more than 30,000 people to northeastern Indiana. The show included 900 booths and 350 vendors. AgrAbility set up the Breaking New Ground and Arthritis in Agriculture displays, in addition to grain entrapment displays and a grain rescue tube provided by the Purdue Agricultural Safety and Health Program.
