About the International Business Centre
This year again, visitors will find the international Business Centre (IBC) presented by HSBC in the Co-operators Centre – upper level. The show organizer is excited about our growing numbers of international visitors and export members. The IBC’s location allows a view of prime exhibit space of the show.
The programming in Canada’s Farm Progress Show’s IBC sets it apart from other shows of its kind. Last year, the IBC welcomed over 600 international delegates from 50 countries.
As the focus on global business continues to grow, the speed and complexity of international business communications flourishes as well. Interactions with foreign buyers that were once nearly impossible to bring about have become commonplace. The IBC takes full advantage of the opportunity to bring buyers and exporters together in one marketplace, providing tremendous value.
The IBC provides a complete business service package to all international visitors, including assistance with hotel reservations, ground transportation to the show and airport, private meeting rooms and comprehensive business services. Professional staff is on site daily to facilitate introductions and meetings between buyers, trade delegations and export members. This year we will again be offering business 2 business meetings between export members and international visitors.
The IBC is a cooperative effort of the Government of Canada and Saskatchewan and Manitoba provincial governments. The IBC also has support from Western Diversification, Saskatchewan Ministry of the Economy, Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP), Manitoba Trade & Investment, Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, Agricultural Manufacturers of Canada and Canada’s Farm Progress Show. Through the IBC outreach program, thanks to its supporting agencies, Canada’s Farm Progress Show is promoted at more than 70 Canadian consulates and trade offices throughout the world.
