We’ve focused a lot on the year that was 2020, with cancellation after cancellation, and general disappointment surrounding farm shows after March 2020.
Now that we’ve almost made it 12 months since the official start of the global pandemic, it has us wondering what the next 12 months will look like.
Recently, Chris Lane, chief executive officer of Canadian Western Agribition, joined in for a RealAg LIVE! episode, and while that wasn’t the focus of the conversation, you can’t help but ask — what does the future of Agribition look like?
While some shows are erring on the side of caution, Canadian Western Agribition — a show where a lot of cattle business is conducted — says they are going full steam ahead for November 2021.
“I can state unequivocally that our organization is committed to delivering Agribition in person and live. You know there’s still lots of unknowns about what that looks like as we’re a ways from November. But on the positive side: We’re a long ways from November. So I think we’ve got lots of runway to get these restrictions lifted a bit. We’re optimistic. We’re hopeful. Last year was a tough year for us, like every other event. But we came through it, and we’re ready to go.”
