Farm equipment buyers and sellers from around the world are getting ready to converge on Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada for the Canada's Farm Progress Show. Now in its 37th year, CFPS is Canada's largest agricultural technology show and one of the largest dryland technology shows in the world.
The show, which runs June 18-20 this year, features 1.9 million square feet of display space that each year draws roughly 45,000 qualified ag industry visitors from more than 57 countries.
While the main purpose of the Farm Progress Show is to offer agriculture companies the opportunity to showcase their products to agriculture buyers, it’s also an informative event where growers can learn about the most innovative farming practices. Through participation in a new educational seminars series titled the Farm Progress Forum, attendees will have an opportunity to hear from industry leaders about industry topics in addition to the 800-plus exhibitors they can visit. Everything that is needed to conduct a farming operation will be displayed at the show.
CFPS features many programs, including the Innovations Showcase, the Conexus Modern Lifestyles Showcase, the Livestock Production area, and Antique Truck & Tractor parade, display and Tractor pull.
CFPS is also offering travel assistance to qualified international buyers. Under the program, CFPS will reimburse up to 50% of travel costs (airfare or gas mileage) for applicants who will be visiting the show for the first time and can source products and services from Canadian companies.
The Export Guide highlights exhibiting companies looking to expand U.S. distribution, and travel subsidy available for U.S. visitors to the show.
