Agricultural Excellence Conference
December 2-4, 2019
Fredericton Convention Centre and Crowne Plaza | Fredericton, New Brunswick
The Agricultural Excellence Conference (AgEx) welcomes anyone and everyone from farmers to advisors, academia, organizations, private industry, and government to join us in Fredericton to exchange expertise and insights to continue to position Canada’s farmers for success through farm management excellence.
The theme Cultivating Resilience focuses on building the capacity for you and your farm to weather any storm and seize opportunity. A healthy farm depends on a healthy farmer, healthy relationships and healthy business. We will discuss the future of Canadian agriculture, the implications for farm managers, and the practical ways farmers can achieve sustainable growth and prosperity. Conference-goers will come away from AgEx equipped with information and tools to enhance Canada’s farm businesses.
From our farm management showcase to expert speakers, you’ll be introduced to farm business management like never before, with ample opportunity for interactive learning and networking through discussion and breakout sessions.
There’s something for everyone at AgEx!
