OLDS, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - November 23, 2016) - dmg events (Canada) inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of DMGT (Daily Mail Group & Trust plc) and Olds College are partnering to develop and organize a new event for the agriculture industry.

FutureFarm Canada Expo 2017 is a unique trade show focused on scientific advancements and innovations needed for tomorrow's agriculture businesses and future farm generations. The event will take place at Olds College on July 6 - 8, 2017, coinciding with the kick-off of the Calgary Stampede. The exhibition will focus on Canada's unique agricultural landscape and feature international companies demonstrating the most innovative products and services in the industry. FutureFarm Canada Expo is changing the model of current shows by attracting new to market exhibitors and international attendees.

Olds College is the premier Canadian college for integrated learning and applied research specializing in agriculture. Event attendees will network, meet industry experts, enjoy onsite demonstrations and have the opportunity to participate in onsite courses offered by the College. The Expo site will be the same location that was used to host the highly successful 2013 World Plowing Championships.

This show has come about as result of the fast changing nature of agriculture as it adjusts to production, profitability and environmental challenges. FutureFarm Canada Expo will be the show to see and learn about Smart Agriculture technologies and practices that are being implemented in response to these opportunities.
