With growing concerns over COVID-19 and the recent announcement of an incoming fifth wave in Alberta, the FarmTech Foundation of Alberta has decided to postpone its 2022 conference, a Nov. 24 news release says. FarmTech had previously announced they would be hosting a hybrid event for the 2022 conference.

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, chair of the FarmTech Foundation of Alberta, says in the release. “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.”

The release says the decision was made after consultation with FarmTech’s hosts, Alberta Barley, Alberta Canola, Alberta Pulse Growers and the Alberta Wheat Commission. The organization says it expresses gratitude for the hosts understanding, patience and continued support.

FarmTech also thanks sponsors and attendees who had committed to the 2022 conference for their support and says their team will be reaching out to those affected personally.

The release says by postponing the 2022 conference it’ll allow them to create a better experience for their hosts, sponsors and attendees as they look forward to hosting their 2023 conference with a new vision. Details about it will be shared in the upcoming months.
