Canadian International Farm Equipment Show

For twenty-plus years, visitors have been lured to the Canadian International Farm Equipment Show, February 5-7th in Mississauga, to see the latest state-of-the-art equipment, products and services available to the agricultural industry.

But to remain progressive and relevant in today's ever-changing market, it is important to continually provide new services, opportunities and attractions for visitors and several exciting new features are scheduled for the 2008 show.

Agriculture has always been an early adaptor of technology, and exhibitors at the 2008 edition of the CIFES (aka "Toronto Farm Show") will not disappoint visitors with their innovative systems and product lines designed to increase both recreational and producer on-farm efficiency.

A new feature that is sure to entice many visitors is the "Big Boy Toys" display. This all-new exhibit for 2008 will showcase some of the largest and most current farm equipment available in the market today, with several new product launches scheduled for the show.

But bigger isn't always better. And there is a growing demand for more compact and smaller-scale farm equipment to service the growing number of new rural property owners in the communities and municipalities that surround the GTA.

The familiar John Deere product line is well respected industry-wide and a group of independent John Deere dealerships throughout south and central Ontario have come together to support a new and innovative concept at the 2008 CIFES—"The Dream Green Farm".

This conceptual farm will be built in a dedicated exhibit area within the show facilities. The Dream Green Farm promises to be an excellent learning opportunity for new rural property owners, many of whom are "sundowner" farmers, who have questions about the type of equipment they need to properly service and maintain their country facilities.

Show organizers have scheduled a series of must-attend educational seminars that will appeal to a broad range of visitors, including the popular Renewable Energy Pavilion introduced at the 2007 show and the Agricultural Innovation Seminar stage featuring current and future programs for state-of-the-art farming communities. Sessions will run throughout the day for the duration of the show.
