Press Release

What is it all about? Grey Bruce Farmers’ Week (#GBFW20), in its 54th year, will run from Friday, Jan 3rd to Thursday, January 9th   This 7-day Agricultural Conference packed with a most impressive and informative line-up of speakers!  The event features at least one high profile speaker for each day.

The Committee is delighted to announce that this year, all days of #GBFW20 will be Live Streamed.  Of course, the best way to experience GBFW is in person, so that attendees can chat with the speakers during breaks, visit the tradeshow booths, and network with fellow producers over a delicious hot roast beef dinner.   If that is just not possible, this new online viewing option will allow producers from far and wide to learn from our spectacular speakers. Of note, for your viewing convenience, live stream ticket holders will be able to access the live feeds for one month following the event.

Who will be there?  For details on the speakers and topics see the Event Schedule on this site
