Strong attendance drives highly successful 2nd annual Canadian Beef Industry Conference
A 10% increase in attendance from the inaugural 2016 conference
A record attendance of diverse beef industry participants from across the country came together in Calgary, Alberta for three days of connecting, Sharing Common Ground and gaining knowledge and inspiration from top speakers at the 2nd annual Canadian Beef Industry Conference (CBIC).
“On behalf of everyone involved with organizing and hosting this event, we couldn’t be more pleased with the excellent support and participation from across the industry that made for another outstanding national conference,” says 2017 CBIC Chair Virgil Lowe. “With over 700 attendees for the program and 825 for the main banquet, along with the delivery of many well received sessions and forums for discussion, the 2nd annual Canadian Beef Industry Conference has succeeded in building upon the success of last year’s inaugural event. It has also created excellent momentum to further propel our National Beef Strategy forward as we look toward another exceptional conference planned for London, Ont., in 2018.”
With the theme of Sharing Common Ground, the 2017 CBIC included a knowledge-packed program highlighted by keynote speakers Jon Montgomery, the Olympic gold medalist in skeleton and current host of Amazing Race Canada, and social license expert Bruce Vincent. The conference also featured a popular “Bov-Innovation” series of educational presentations and interactive workshops for producers, along with numerous additional speaker presentations and sessions covering a wealth of topics relevant to industry progress and success, from the farm level to the broad industry level. The conference also included a large tradeshow, along with numerous entertainment, social and recreational opportunities.
