ABBOTSFORD, B.C. — The 19th annual Pacific Agriculture Show — which runs from Jan. 26 to 28 at the Tradex Centre in Abbotsford, B.C. — will feature more than 300 exhibitors with leading experts addressing the most important issues in agriculture, including climate change and economic challenges.
“The agriculture and agri-food industry employs more than 2.2 million Canadians and contributes more than $100 billion annually to our country’s gross domestic product,” says Jim Shepard, show director for the Pacific Agriculture Show. “The business of farming has changed; we need to provide resources to our producers so that they can adapt. That’s why we dedicated this year’s show to helping farmers develop their business into profitable, sustainable companies. Our food supply and economy depend on it.”
Noteworthy speakers at this year’s show include Larry Martin, principal at Agri-Food Management Excellence; Alf and Sandee Krause from Krause Berry Farms in Langley, B.C.; Gabriel Frisch of Frisch Farms in Vancouver; Dave Trotter of BCAGR; and Emily MacNair of Climate Action Initiative.
