This week's CropConnect Conference in Winnipeg is sure to have something of interest for everybody.
In addition to the break-out sessions and keynote speakers, over half a dozen commodity groups will also be hosting their annual general meetings.
Event Co-Chair Roberta Galbraith says CropConnect is a prime example of how commodity groups can work together.
“We all come to the table from the different organizations and we leave our corporate hats at the door, if you will, and come together to put on an event that embodies the ag industry in Manitoba and we do it really well.”
Keynote speakers include Glen Hodgson from the Conference Board of Canada, Disney's Doug Lipp, and Drew Lerner from World Weather, Inc.
Federal Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay will give the welcoming address Wednesday morning, while Manitoba Agriculture Minister Ralph Eichler will address the crowd during the evening banquet.
The event is being held Wednesday and Thursday at the Victoria Inn, Winnipeg.
