Speaker Series Reflects Farm Future!

 

London, Ontario, March 4, 2013: Thousands of farmers flock every year to the London Farm Show to see the latest in farming equipment and what’s new and exciting in agricultural technology.  In 2013, participants reflect on the past as the event celebrates 75 years and look forward to showcasing what’s current and relevant in agricultural information, products and services, for farmers in our region and beyond.  To help educate and inspire, the London Farm Show has scheduled a strong speaker series with informative talks covering a variety of topics: new aerial imagery technology, mobile software, farm safety and market trends.

This year's show expanded to more than 250,000 square feet of show space as we grew the show into the state-of-the-art Agriplex facility. There were hundreds of products/services, expert guest speakers in the Auditorium, and hands-on equipment demonstrations in the PRIDE Seeds Arena.
