Manitoba Ag Days is a premier agricultural trade show with success attributed to keeping the show current. Exhibitors displaying new products play a key role in this success. To enhance this aspect Manitoba Ag Days offers the New Products Feature. Exhibitors may opt to pay a fee of $275 to participate in this feature (in addition to the regular display fees). Manitoba Ag Days will provide the exhibitor with a New Product Sign which will include the year and the Ag Days logo. Exhibitors may then use the sign to display at their booth. Exhibitors participating in this feature will also receive a special listing in the show guide as well as on the Manitoba Ag Days website. All products that qualify will be considered for judging for the Best New Product Award.
In order to qualify for this feature the new product must be approved by Manitoba Ag Days. To participate exhibitors will need to check the appropriate area on the exhibitor entry form and submit their payment. A description of the new product must accompany the entry form. To qualify the product must be unique and new to the Manitoba market within the past 12 months.
Manitoba Ag Days will make the final determination as to which products qualify for the New Products Feature. The fee will be refunded if the product fails to qualify.
In order to be eligible: the invention cannot have been marketed in Manitoba in any form for more than two years prior to the 2018 show (as of the show date).
