Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

The Canadian Forage and Grassland Association (CFGA)’s Annual Conference is taking place in Guelph, Ontario, from Dec. 3 to 7 and we hope you’ll join us as a sponsor for this exciting event. This year’s theme is Roots to Success: The Foundation of Resilient Agriculture. This not-to-be-missed event will celebrate the important environmental and economic role forages and grasslands play nationwide and will once again deliver the practical, grassroots-based agronomic knowledge the CFGA is known for.

Sponsoring the CFGA’s annual conference is an opportunity to engage with stakeholders across the sector, learn, build your professional network and create collaborative partnerships. It is your gateway to Canada’s 70 million acres of forage and grassland production, the researchers who study it and the men and women who manage and protect it.

Canada is home to 70 million acres of forage and grassland production, making it the largest land-use sector in Canadian agriculture. It is the backbone of Canada’s ruminant industry and forage production is being highlighted more than ever across the value chain from production, export and conservation.

The CFGA provides both in-person and digital opportunities to promote your organization and showcase the ways in which you support the forage industry. Depending on the sponsorship package you choose, the following benefits are available:

  • Logo recognition on conference materials and website
  • Recognition on CFGA social media
  • Ad in the conference program
  • Logo in the CFGA newsletter (4 times per year)
  • Recognition in special email showcase of sponsors
  • Exhibit table at the conference venue
  • Corporate video recognition during breaks
  • Recognition on table tent cards
  • Opportunity to provide an item in the delegate bag

The CFGA annual conference provides a wonderful training opportunity for you and your team. While building your brand, you can attend technical workshops and educational sessions. The CFGA has invested in a broad approach to learning over the last several years and we view the conference as the cornerstone of this learning. While we have learning sessions that adopt a traditional approach, we also engage our attendees to provide their opinions, learn from their peers and continue learning throughout the year.

The CFGA’s online learning platform, The Forage Resource, engages those who register for the conference long before they step foot in Guelph. We will have discussions and provide some supplementary content before the sessions so that individuals can connect to the subject matter and each other, making for a richer experience while at the conference. After the conference, we will remain connected through the same platform for both the conference content and other online learning experiences.

Reach out to the most avid learners of our industry. Attend and meet producers who are eager to learn and improve their farms and who are enthusiastic about the forage and grassland industry. Depending on the sponsorship package you choose, the following benefits are available:

  • Recognition on the CFGA’s online learning platform, The Forage Resource
  • Conference registration to attend workshops and presentations

Attending the CFGA conference is an annual opportunity to connect with the key minds in the forage industry. There are ample ways to network before, during and after the conference. At our conferences, you can meet industry leaders across the sector. The forage industry has many facets and opportunities abound when the industry connects within and across their areas of expertise.

Depending on the sponsorship package you choose, the following benefits are available:

  • Opportunity to provide welcome during conference proceedings
  • Attend the welcome reception
  • Attend our post-conference tour to link to key industry leaders
  • Provide insight during our pre-conference workshops
  • Connect with experts and policymakers across the sector
  • Attend the CFGA’s operational update to get an update on CFGA activities
