35th Anniversary Alberta Horse Conference
29 April 2016
The 35th Anniversary Alberta Horse Conference is on the move ... and the changes are exciting!
The 2017 Alberta Horse Conference will feature several fresh new changes. The conference is moving to Strathcona County, in the new Sherwood Park Conference and Community Centre on January 13, 14 and 15th, 2017. This exciting new venue will allow the conference to maintain the high level of quality education from our presenters that we've become use to and offer several new options. One new feature is that the trade show venue will be right in one of the main presentation rooms: The Agora. This room features state of the art technology along with the space that we can all be together with our trade show exhibitor sponsors.
Conference attendees have asked for years that we incorporate live horses.... we have listened! There will be live horse sessions on our Saturday afternoon at a nearby amazing equine facility, Ash-Bren Equine (we'll even transport you there on modern comfortable buses). At the same time we will be reaching out to the public to come through the trade show centre on the Saturday afternoon. They will be presented with a program of outreach, featuring mini presentations geared to attracting people to consider getting involved with the horse industry. There will be a Vet Room available for the whole conference where you can come and talk to a veterinarian, see wrapping demonstrations and ask those questions you've always wanted to ask your vet but just didn't have the time to sit and talk.
The one thing that will not change is the integrity of of the educational value of our presenters. As we book speakers we will be sending out Facebook & Twitter
messages and giving you details about their presentation topics. If you are not on Facebook yet, now is your time to get onto the Alberta Horse Conference Facebook page
