One of the best ways for people to figure out solutions to any problem or generate ideas is to gather them all in one place.

In 2010, Hockey Canada hosted a four-day summit in Toronto with more than 400 hockey professionals attending to talk about junior hockey development, women’s hockey and other pressing issues in the game.

In 1992, the United Nations held the Earth Summit in Brazil to discuss how to combat climate change, pollution and other environmental issues.

Agriculture is an ever-expanding, constantly growing industry and meetings like the ones mentioned provide farmers with the resources they need all in one place.

The March Classic will be hosted by the Grain Farmers of Ontario on Tuesday, March 24 at the Hilton in London, Ontario and will bring together exhibitors including the Canadian Grain Commission, Soy 20/20 Hyland Seeds and farmers passionate about Ontario’s grains.

“The theme of this year’s conference is Ontario Grains: Growing Stronger Together and emphasizes the importance of working cooperatively across the agriculture sector and the value of communicating openly with the non-farming public,” said Meghan Burke, Communications Manager, Grain Farmers of Ontario.

The event will feature guest speakers for the expected 650 attendees including Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz, Greg Peterson who will speak about using social media to be an agriculture advocate and Dr. Julie Miller Jones who will talk about grains and health.
