Organizers are extremely pleased with the results for Canada's Farm Show which brought producers and exhibitors from across Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the world to the event.
Kirk Westgard, Vice President of Regina Exhibition Association says during the three day show $76 million in international sales were reported, as well as a $100 million investment in the agri-value chain.
He notes people were happy to be back face-to-face doing business with attendance for the show on par with 2019 levels.
"Doing the comparison I know we're about 93% of what we were so it was looking good. We're on target for a show that changed how we operate and went all indoors. Coming off of COVID and what's going on around the globe we're very happy with where the attendance is at."
Westgard says exhibitors and visitors to the show were pleased with the new Tuesday to Thursday show dates, and indoor format which meant they didn’t have to fight the wind, rain, and heat.
This year also marked the final event for Show Manager Shirley Janezcko who is officially retiring.Click here to see more...
