The London Farm Show will mark its 80th Anniversary with the introduction of a new venue; the BMO Centre.  This new building location accompanies the Agriplex, which will be home to all large equipment and implement displays.  The BMO Centre will complement with a showcase of products, services and small equipment.  Guests can continue to park where they have in the past and will be conveniently shuttled back and forth between the two premiere venues and parking areas, via a luxury coach bus.  
The BMO Centre, located just a short walking distance west of the District’s Agriplex, across Rectory Street, is a beautiful new facility. This large venue provides numerous opportunities for exhibitors; large show floor, high efficiency LED lighting, meeting rooms, hospitality space, as well as new sponsorship opportunities.  “The largest indoor farm show in eastern Canada, continuously develops, and this year is no different,” says Farm Show Manager, Cheron Chamberlain.  “We’re happy to have been around for 80 years celebrating a major milestone for this important agri-business event.” is exhibiting in the BMO Centre at booth 208
