Preparation for 2023 Agribition underway

The 52nd edition of Canadian Western Agribition is on the horizon.

It starts on Monday at REAL District in Regina, and event CEO Shaun Kindopp says staff are getting things prepared.

“By the end of the night tomorrow (Fri) there should be a full arena set up almost. The crew works really well together and makes things happen pretty fast.” said Kindopp, adding preparation for an event as big as Agribition takes about a year. Part of the decision making process involves a 3-year “road map” or strategic plan.

“The decisions we make this year we want to make sure that we can continue to carry that momentum into future years.” he said of keeping the event new and exciting each year.

“Just trying to keep the value to all the people that are coming to Agribition while also still trying to stay very authentic and stick to our roots as well.” Kindopp added.

The event has generated a lot of interest from international visitors as Kindopp says representation from about 70 countries is expected for this year’s week-long event.

Agribition runs from Monday to Saturday next week. One of the things to kick off the event is the burning of the brand Monday morning.
