November 24th, 2021 (Edmonton, AB) - After careful consideration due to growing concerns over Covid-19 and the announcement of the risk of a fifth wave in our province, the FarmTech Foundation of Alberta is postponing its 2022 conference. The health and safety of our hosts, sponsors, employees and attendees are our highest priority.
The decision was made after consultation with our hosts, Alberta Barley, Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse Growers and the Alberta Wheat Commission, to whom the FarmTech Foundation of Alberta would like to express gratitude for their understanding, patience and continued support. For sponsors and attendees who had committed to the 2022 conference, we thank you for your continuous support and would like to notify you that the FarmTech team will be reaching out to you personally.
Postponing the 2022 conference will allow us to create a better experience for our hosts, sponsors and attendees as FarmTech remains excited to host its 2023 conference with a new vision, details of which will be shared in the coming months.
“With the recent announcement made by the Alberta government’s ongoing work to protect Albertans from Covid-19 and the possibility of increased cases and transmissions this winter, we made the difficult decision to postpone FarmTech 2022,”- Janine Paly, FarmTech Foundation of Alberta chair.
“Since FarmTech has been known as a place of gathering, we want to host it in a safe manner for our farmers, sponsors and hosts and come back stronger in 2023.”
