Show Notes

This week Kevin Varley, Broker at Josslin Insurance, joins us to talk about the uncertainty surrounding the future of tradeshows.  Kevin has been apart of the organizing committees for a couple of different tradeshows including the International Plowing Match in 2017 and the Ontario Pork Congress over the last few years.  Tradeshows have always been a staple within the agriculture community as a great way to get out, see the latest technology, and speak with representatives from many companies all in one spot.  The last year has taken quite a toll on many shows, but many are looking towards the next year with some optimism.
