FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Manitoba Ag Days 2021 Show Cancelled
The board of directors of Manitoba Ag Days has made the very difficult decision to not proceed with a traditional Manitoba Ag Days show in 2021. The safety and well-being of our exhibitors, patrons, volunteers, contractors, board of directors and management team was paramount in our decision to not move forward.
The traditional Ag Days is an opportunity for us to gather together, share knowledge, showcase innovation, and learn something new. It allows us to touch, feel, see and smell all things agriculture. Ag Days is an opportunity to share a conversation, hear a specialist and engage with hundreds of exhibitors all under one roof. It is a chance to meet new people and foster life long relationships.
We care about the Keystone Centre, it’s incredible staff and the infrastructure that it houses. The Keystone Centre is the premier location in Canada to host an event, especially an agricultural one. We value the economic impact our show has not only in Brandon but all of Westman. Ag Days extends to many communities and we know each of you are great ambassadors for our show and our province. We care about the food and beverage, event, and hospitality industries and know how big of an impact Ag Days has on all of these businesses. Ag Days would not be possible if it weren’t for the hard work and long hours that everyone puts in before, during and after the show. The communities where our patrons and exhibitors live are extremely important to us and we want to keep everyone safe and healthy.
Given the current situation, we do not feel like we can safely carry out the Largest Indoor Farm Show in Canada so for the security and well-being of Manitobans, we have arrived at the very difficult decision to cancel our 2021 show. For now, we will help create a healthier society so that when it is safe to do so we can be back together again, stronger than ever.
