Registration now open for 2021 Banff Pork Seminar

The virtual conference will be a two-day event, held Tuesday Jan. 5 and Thursday Jan. 7.

Registration details have been announced for the 2021 Banff Pork Seminar. This year the event is free, however delegates must register ahead of time in order to participate.

"Our decision to go with a virtual conference for 2021 was based on keeping delegates safe during the COVID-19 pandemic," says Ashley Steeple, seminar coordinator. "However, in keeping with our history, we wanted to continue to offer the high quality experience that our in-person events have always provided."

The 2021 Seminar will be a two-day event, held Tuesday Jan. 5 and Thursday Jan. 7.

Program details and the registration link are on the BPS website. Delegates will have the option of watching speaker presentations live or watching later at their convenience.

"This is a unique opportunity for delegates anywhere in Canada or around the world to participate in our renowned Banff Pork Seminar," says Steeple. "By providing this free of charge we are hoping to help the industry during a difficult time and at the same time ensure that this iconic event continues in the future."

The 50th anniversary celebration originally scheduled for this year has been delayed to the next in-person event with BPS partner, the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, says Steeple. Hopefully that will be in 2022. 

The Banff Pork Seminar is coordinated by the Department of Agricultural, Food and Nutritional Sciences, University of Alberta, in cooperation with Alberta Pork, Alberta Agriculture and Forestry and other pork industry representatives from across Canada.
