Early bird registration is officially open for CrossRoads, happening Jan. 24-25 in Edmonton, Alta., a Sept. 29 news release said.
Early bird pricing is in effect until Nov. 1, 2022 and costs $450. The release noted registration is limited to 700 participants.
The conference will take place over two days and feature keynotes speakers Vance Crowe, a communications expert, podcast host and former lead spokesperson for Monsanto, and Chris Koch, an Alberta farm boy turned motivational speaker sure to challenge and inspire conference attendees, the release said. There will also be 15 concurrent sessions covering hot-button topics and financial management advice.
“We hope that through the carefully curated conference lineup and with the smaller scale of the event, farmers will have important conversations about critical issues facing their operations, and that our industry will be stronger as a result,” Todd Hames, conference chair said in the release.
The release noted the CrossRoads is hosted by the FarmTech Foundation of Alberta, which is a working collaboration by four of Alberta’s crop commissions — Alberta Barley, Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse Growers, and the Alberta Wheat Commission.
