Successful Ag Expo brings agriculture community together

Agribusiness professionals, top equipment manufacturers attended southern Alberta’s largest agricultural event in Lethbridge, Alta.

Lethbridge, Alta. – A new home, a showcase of the latest innovations, and a chance to meet with others in the agricultural community led to a successful Ag Expo, presented by Farm Credit Canada, from Feb. 27 to 29 in Lethbridge, Alta. In its new home in the Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre, the revamped show saw attendance ramp up by more than six per cent, while 1,500 exhibitors representing more than 300 companies showed off the latest in agriculture.

The annual event displayed the latest equipment, showcased the most innovative technology and offered opportunities to help farmers be more efficient, and ultimately more profitable, in their efforts to produce safe food products for consumers around the world.

“Ag Expo brings visitors from across the prairies to Alberta, and the economic impact that this event has on the province’s economy is truly beneficial to all Albertans,” says Dave Fiddler, Ag Expo Executive Producer. “The sold-out exhibit space was packed with more than 300 booths. It is a significant contributor to not only the agricultural sector but to the city of Lethbridge, with thousands of out of town visitors descending on the city for the three days of Ag Expo.”

The move of Ag Expo into the Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre created new opportunities for Ag Expo. While Lethbridge & District Exhibition has been hosting an annual agriculture show for more than a century, this year’s event brought the entire show under one roof for the first time, with large farm equipment, technological implements, seed producers and more all sharing space side-by-side, creating the opportunity for increased collaboration and opportunity.

“This year we had attendees from throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Manitoba, as well as Montana,” says Kim Gallucci, Acting CEO, Lethbridge and District Exhibition. “Feedback from both exhibitors and attendees indicated that the show was indeed a resounding success, largely due to the amenities of the new Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre. In addition to the show, agriculture companies were also able to book space to meet with clients and partners, which further opportunities and really showcased the versatility of the venue.”

A highlight of the show was the North American Seed Fair, which featured more than 140 entries in 25 classes, and the Tech Zone, which displayed the latest in agriculture technology.

Ag Expo 2025 will be riding a wave of momentum as it returns to the Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre from Feb. 26 to 28, 2025.
