Saskatoon will be hosting over 600 dignitaries from 75 countries for the 69th International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage International Conference next year.
Tourism Saskatoon Director of International Sales Brad Peters says the event will be an excellent platform to showcase Canada's achievements in agriculture and agricultural water management to the world. Peters says the economic impact could be as much as $3.8 million, but that may not be the biggest benefit in Saskatoon. He says local and provincial businesses will have a great chance to network and share ideas with people from around the world. The International Commission on Irrigation and Drainage International Conference will take place August 12th to 17th, 2018.
