BC AGRI-FOOD INDUSTRY GALA
Tickets On Sale Now!
BC Agriculture Council is thrilled to welcome you back to one of the industry's premier events of the year. The 21st annual Agri-Food Industry Gala event will be held on January 25, 2023 at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Centre in Abbotsford, B.C.
This sell-out event has grown to welcome over 500 guests each year, successfully making it British Columbia's premier agricultural networking occasion.
Truly a celebration of agriculture in British Columbia, the event brings together farmers, ranchers, agri-food leaders, and supporting industry stakeholders from across the province.
We Heard You! We know that seating was tight in previous years, many people just wanted to eat and catch-up with one another. As a result, we are excited to announce some changes to the event to enhance your time to mingle. These include:
- Reduced number of tables in the room to allow for more space to move around and network
- Reduced number of seats at the tables to eight (please note: the number of tables available for purchase have also been reduced)
- No sit-down dinner to allow more time for networking
- Interactive food stations, as well as a wide selection of menu tasting options, in addition to the highly sought-after cheese table
- Live entertainment
The annual online silent auction will open for bidding on January 18, 2023 and will close at 9:00 PM on January 25, 2023. The proceeds from the 2023 silent auction will support BC Young Farmers.
