SIAL Canada, originally scheduled for April 15-17, has been rescheduled for August, due to coronavirus concerns and the decision by the government of Quebec to suspend all large gatherings in an effort to prevent further spread of COVID-19.
The new event dates are August 5-7, 2020, at the Palais de Congrès in Montréal.
"The Expo has been North America’s premier agro-industrial event for years, and the 2020 edition will be, now more than ever, the image of inspiration," states Xavier Poncin, CEO of Expo Canada France/SIAL Canada, in a statement. "We hope the spread of the virus will be curtailed in due time, and we are grateful for your continued support and confidence. We are excited to collaborate with you on a great 2020 edition."
