About the Commonwealth Agriculture Conference

Since 1963, the Commonwealth Agriculture Conference has been held biennially in Commonwealth nations across the world and is designed to give delegates a taste of the agriculture industry in that region of the host country.

Developed by the Royal Agriculture Society of the Commonwealth (RASC), the Commonwealth Agriculture Conference 2018 will mark the conference’s fourth trip to Canada.

The 28th Commonwealth Agriculture Conference will mark the event’s second visit to Alberta and will take place at the Edmonton EXPO Centre from November 5-8, 2018, preceding Farmfair International.

The conference will focus on the success of Alberta and Canada’s agriculture industries while providing a forum for discussing mutual successes and challenges in agriculture around the world.

Hosting over 300 international delegates from across developed and developing nations of the Commonwealth, participants will partake in a pre-tour focused on taking conference attendees to tourist attractions across Edmonton.
