This #CAARCON update is brought to you by InterAg.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Icebreaker Cocktail Reception to kick off the 2018 CAAR Conference while raising a toast to Canada’s Agriculture Day.
There’s no better way to celebrate the industry we love than in the company of the friends and colleagues who share our passion. It was truly a pleasure for all the CAAR staff and board members to have the chance to meet and greet so many new and familiar faces.
“This is my second CAAR Conference. I’ve really enjoyed the Icebreaker both years. It’s a great networking opportunity and it’s been great to catch up today with some acquaintances I haven’t seen in awhile,” says Aaron Kirk, Territory Sales Manager with NexusAg.
We'll see you bright and early tomorrow for the first full day of the conference, which includes an unbeatable lineup of speakers and events. Here are some of the events you won’t want to miss out on tomorrow!
