If you’re going to the show, do pop by and pay us a visit; Farm Business Communications will be at booth 182-183 in the Credit Union EventPlex. That’s to your left (across from Timmy’s) at the EventPlex’s main entrance.
The Western Canada Farm Progress Show, which bills itself as “Canada’s National Farm Show,” is considered the single largest dryland farm technology show in the country and regularly draws more than 700 exhibitors and over 40,000 visitors per year.
Attractions scheduled for the show, running June 17-19, include the New Inventions Showcase, the “Ride and Drive” test area, displays of antique tractors and trucks, a farmers’ market and the Renewable Energy Centre. On-site events include the Heartland Women’s Expo and concerts by Aaron Pritchett (Wednesday) and Adam Gregory (Thursday).
If you can’t make it to the show, you can connect to it through our Farm Progress Show News, delivered to your e-mail inbox each day during the show. An online form where you can sign up to receive the Show News will be available within the next few days at the Grainews or Country Guide websites.
