Building off the energy and success of the first ever Agri-Tech Trade Show + Mixer in The Region, held in Abbotsford last October, the Sumas Regional Consortium for High Tech (SRCTec) is following up with Innovation Day, a mini agri-tech trade show in the Scotiabank Pavilion at the Pacific Agriculture Show. This trade show represents the scope and importance of Technology within the Agriculture Sector and lets attendees investigate and compare the latest technologies, trends and techniques available. Come see what all the buzz is about on January 29 from 1:00pm to 4:30pm.
The 2015 Pacific Agriculture show attracted over 8,000 attendees who saw over 300 exhibiting companies. Being apart of an event of this magnitude will allow the region to see just how stimulating some of the newest innovations in agri-tech are. Some of SRCTec’s Agri-Tech Venture Acceleration Program participants will be apart of this event, along with three speakers who will provide presentations on topics such as “ A Day at the Farm with Drones” ( Mike Morellato and Jim Buerk /Aerobotika), “The Impact of the FDA Foreign Supplier Verification Program Ruling on Canadian Food Exports” (Steven Burton/Burton Software) and “Next-Generation Efficient Heat and Water Management Technologies” (Dr. Majid Bahrami/Watergenics Inc.).
Tickets for this event can be purchased at the Tradex and are $14. The event runs from January 28th to January 30th.
