Event Description

The ONTARIO Agricultural CONFERENCE is excited to bring you to the next level with our 2024 conference (#OAgC24). Using the excellent feedback from attendees over the past years, the conference is expanding to offer even more opportunities for in-person learning, while maintaining the excellent access to sessions with our virtual format as well.

The 2024 conference will offer attendees the opportunity to join the conference In-Person at 3 separate locations on 3 different dates in January! Ridgetown, Waterloo and Kemptville will all offer In-Person options, while those choosing the virtual conference will be able to access sessions from their home computer and mobile devices, anywhere they happen to be. Of course, In-Person attendees at any location will have access to all virtual sessions as well, right up to March 31, 2024.


January 4 & 5, 2024, The SouthWest Agricultural Conference (SWAC) is the premier event for agricultural professionals and industry-leading experts. Taking place in Guelph, Ontario, SWAC offers two days of dynamic speakers and industry-leading agricultural experts to provide leading information to meet today’s agricultural challenges along with a trade show.

Returning, of course, is the ever popular “Taste of Ontario” Social on January 4, and our traditional trade show with the latest in crop production technology.

Sessions from all 3 In-Person events will be recorded and included as ON DEMAND sessions as they become available, to allow all conference attendees access to the incredible information that will be delivered. All recorded sessions will be available virtually until March 31, 2024.

As well, back by popular demand, TEC Talk Tuesdays will allow participants to join the discussion as conference speakers dig into selected topics in more detail on Tuesday evenings through January and February, 7:27 pm sharp.
