Woodstock, ON., February 10, 2021 – While the traditional September timing of Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show is still many months away, organizers of Canada’s premier farm show in eastern Canada are launching early access to information for producers without waiting to see how the pandemic plays out.
“There is still so much uncertainty in 2021, and while we are all missing in-person farm shows, we wanted to give producers something certain they could count on: timely information throughout the year,” says Lynda Tityk, Executive Vice-President of Glacier FarmMedia. “The constantly evolving COVID-19 environment makes planning difficult, but our Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show team felt we could contribute in a concrete way, right now.”
Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show is launching a year-long digital offering starting with the first themed digital event on planting topics on Wednesday, March 10. Presenters will talk about maximizing profitability through small changes, share practical equipment tips, plus explore new developments in autonomous ag equipment.
Farmers attend online by registering for Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show Digital Pass. Attendees only need to register once to get year-long access to online content and connections. Six themed digital events will run throughout 2021 on the same powerful, interactive online platform used for Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show in 2020. Registration is free for farmers to participate.
An added feature this year is a virtual Coffee Shop that provides an informal setting for farmers, speakers and industry reps to gather at small virtual tables on digital event days to catch up and ask each other questions through video chat. It’s a way to replicate the in-person connections of the show – not just once this year, but many times this year – until in-person gatherings are allowed.
Registration for the Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show Digital Pass is now open, and offers farmers:
