Steve Swain, assistive technology specialist, and Amber Wolfe of the Arthritis Foundation staffed an exhibit at the Indiana Horticulture Congress. 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 outside the exhibit hall. The exhibit included project resources, publications, and examples of assistive technology for attendees. The display emphasized arthritis and agriculture through publications and resources.

Indiana AgrAbility/Breaking New Ground shared space at the Fort Wayne Farm Show with the Purdue Agricultural Safety and Health Program. The AgrAbility exhibit presented resources and publications focusing on arthritis and agriculture. The farm show is visited by over 40,000 farmers and exhibitors each year. The safety display emphasized grain safety and the hazards of flowing grain.
