Farm Forum Event moves to virtual online conference on Nov 9 & 10, 2020

SASKATOON, SK, July 27, 2020 –/COMMUNITYWIRE/– The Farm Forum Event, a future-focused agriculture production conference featuring the industry’s top thought leaders, innovators, researchers and strategists, will move to a virtual format on November 9 & 10, 2020.

“Work on the farm doesn’t go away during a pandemic, so we want to make sure we’re helping farmers stay informed, agile and profitable.”

The conference was scheduled to be held in Saskatoon in November, but with COVID-19 restrictions for in-person meetings, the Farm Forum Event organizers are instead offering Canadian farmers and agronomists a new and interactive virtual ag production conference.

“With so many Canadian agriculture events and meetings this year being put off, we wanted to make sure that the industry still has access to the latest information and experts who can share innovative approaches to the challenges that farmers face today,” says Iris Meck, Conference Director, the Farm Forum Event.

Farm operations are a vital service, and production is continuing in spite of the pandemic. The Farm Forum Event conference organizers from Glacier FarmMedia are rolling up their sleeves, and applying what they learned from the successful Ag in Motion Discovery Plus virtual farm show last week to build an innovative conference platform for the Farm Forum Event.

The new virtual conference platform will allow farmers and agronomists to connect with each other and the presenters, watch and comment on presentations, view virtual exhibitor booths from sponsoring companies plus connect with their staff, book meetings with other attendees at the conference and attend small-group Table Talks.

The virtual Farm Forum Event will feature speakers like Andrew Coyne, Sylvain Charlebois, Nuffield scholars, Canadian university and government researchers, farm producers, and more. The Farm Forum Event is known for bringing great speakers to the podium as well as providing educational units for Certified Crop Advisors.

“In such an uncertain year, we are committed to keeping our agriculture community in touch with experts in agricultural production to give them timely information for their farm operation,” says Meck. “We have had a lot of agronomists attend the conference in the past and wanted to be sure they have a way to meet their online learning requirements. Work on the farm doesn’t go away during a pandemic, so we want to make sure we’re helping farmers stay informed, agile and profitable.”

The 2020 Farm Forum Event virtual conference takes place on November 9 & 10. More information is available at farmforumevent.com and registration information will be provided in the coming months.
