Sponsorship Package (includes program to date; pdf)

To All Swine Industry Representatives,

On December 4, 2018 at the Arden Park in Stratford, OMAFRA along with Ontario Pork, OPIC and the Prairie Swine Centre are hosting a Group Sow Housing & Management Seminar.

Over the last while we have been receiving a lot of questions related to sow housing and management, and producers as well as industry have asked us to host another meeting on this topic following the success of the one held in 2016. After a lot of planning, we are excited to be able to host such an event in December.

  1. In order to make the event affordable for Ontario producers and swine industry representatives to attend, we are seeking sponsorship from valued companies such as your own. We have a packed agenda with experts from all across Canada and the USA coming to speak to us here in Ontario, but this comes at a cost. We have prepared a sponsorship package, and would appreciate if you take some time to read through it and consider providing financial support to this event. The package includes the seminar program. All of the speakers listed have confirmed their attendance, and we are working on finalizing the last producer profile spot. There are different levels of sponsorship available, and descriptions of what is included with each level is in the package. Please note that we will have less space available for the exhibitor area this year (compared to 2016), as we want to maximize space for attendees. Booth spaces will not be able to be larger than described in the package. Also, sponsorships will be given out on a first come first serve basis, so if there is a specific sponsorship package you are interested in, let me know ASAP.

  1. Whether you decide to financially sponsor the event or not, we would appreciate your support of the event by sharing the program details with producers and other industry representatives. We believe we have put together a very valuable session, focused on “Overcoming Challenges”. We all know that group sow housing presents many challenges! The program will provide valuable information to those in the planning stages, as well as to those who already have group housing in place.

This event is brought to you by the London Swine Conference, and all information regarding the program and registration will be kept up to date at Registration will be available soon. Save the date postcards are available upon request, and program brochures will become available early October, allowing us to include our financial sponsors on the brochure.

OMAFRA, Ontario Pork, OPIC and the Prairie Swine Centre look forward to having you as valued sponsors for this event!
