They’ve built it, now it’s time to come.
With the 2016 Canadian Dairy XPO just two weeks away, show organizers are getting ready to unveil the new WeCover Cow Coliseum and pedestrian bridge that will connect the building to the Stratford Rotary Complex.
The steel bridge will carry the more than 15,000 visitors expected to visit the April 6 and 7 dairy show over a municipal storm water pond to the Cow Coliseum located at the south end of the complex. The 100-foot long pedestrian bridge, which connects the Complex and the eight main trade halls to the Cow Coliseum, features a wood deck and is ramped at both ends for full wheel chair and stroller access.
Cow Coliseum will be 6,000 square feet larger than the previous space. The added real estate will play an important role in accommodating current exhibitors as well as a growing number of international companies that will be attending CDX in 2016, explains CDX General Manager Jordon Underhill.
