The 2018 CropConnect Conference is taking place next week in Winnipeg. The event will be held February 14th and 15th at the Victoria Inn.
Co-Chair Roberta Galbraith says they have a good line-up of keynote speakers planned for this year, including former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.
“Brian will of course share his perspective on what’s going on with the NAFTA deal and TPP and a whole number of other things,” she explained. “I saw him last year at FarmTech and he was absolutely excellent and thought he would be a good addition to our show here in Manitoba.”
Another keynote speaker will be David Frum, Senior Editor for The Atlantic. He’s also a former speech writer for U.S. President George W. Bush.
The event, which is sold out, will also include AGM’s for the various commodity organizations in the province. Five of those groups will also give an update on a proposed merger that is in the works.
