In 2013, 2,402 guests from 66 countries visited the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. While the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is deeply rooted in Texas, its reach ignores borders and transcends oceans to bring the excitement of the Show to livestock producers worldwide.
In recognition of global interest, the Show annually designates a series of International Days to express hospitality to the Show's foreign guests. During this time, volunteers staff the International Room to help welcome and inform visitors. Professional interpreters are available and particular assistance is given to foreign buyers at the livestock auctions.
