LETHBRIDGE, AB — The stage is set for a packed house event at the second annual Alberta Livestock Expo, Oct. 10-11 at Exhibition Park Lethbridge, featuring sold out exhibition spaces and a showcase of fresh knowledge and technology to support the industry into the future.
“The support and interest has been off the charts – we are looking forward to a great opportunity for producers and others across the industry to visit, share ideas and learn about some of latest innovations,” says Chris Tokaruk of TTT Stock Company, founding sponsor of the Expo.
Expanded format and features
The newly expanded Expo builds on a successful inaugural event by adding an additional day to the format along with broadened program features and expanded floor space for the popular exhibitor booth spaces.
“We’ve gone from 80 booths in 2017 to 120 in 2018,” says Tokaruk. “We’ve added a beef rib dinner and a Pork Quality competition. And we’ve gone from a one day show to a two day event. Hope you’ll join us in Lethbridge next Wednesday and Thursday. The event also has lots of opportunity to visit with colleagues across the industry and have an enjoyable time.”
Tickets are available both in advance or at the event gate. Wednesday Show Hours are from 1:00-5:00 p.m. and a 5:00-8:00 p.m. Beef Rib BBQ Competition. Thursday Show Hours are from 9:30-5:00 p.m. with the 4:00-5:00 p.m. slot including the Pork Quality Competition.
Industry support critical to a successful event
“Thank you to our sponsors for setting the stage for a successful event,” says Tokaruk. “Industry support is critical to the continued progress of the Alberta Livestock Expo and we greatly appreciate the response from sponsors, exhibitors and attendees. We’ve been able to achieve a broad foundation of support in just two years that bodes well for a strong future for this event.”
