The Partnership of Agri-Trade began in 1984 and has continued to this day, and is a joint venture of the Red Deer and District Chamber of Commerce and Westerner Park. Agri-Trade is considered to be one of the best Farm Equipment Shows to do business in North America. It is one of the shows in Canada that is supported by the major equipment retailers as a “National Stand”.
Agri-Trade Equipment Expo attracts annually over 30,000 qualified Agriculture Buyers and over 475 equipment manufacturers and Agricultural Services to Red Deer. Agri-Trade is considered one of the Best Agricultural Equipment shows in Canada generating an estimated $150,000,000.00 annually in equipment sales and tourism spending.
Because of Agri-Trade’s unique timing, we are the first show after harvest as well as the first show that kicks off a new planning season for producers. That is the secret to the success of the Show; farmers know what they have to spend.
Agri-Trade happens over three days each November and is host to exhibitors representing the very best in agriculture equipment, technology, service and products.

Focus on youth
Agri-Trade is pleased to be once again providing bursaries to agricultural students from both Red Deer College, Olds College and Lakeland College. The bursary program totals $22,500 for worthy students across Alberta.
In our efforts to support youth in Agriculture we are also offering free admission to any 4-H member, who arrives at the show and presents their valid 4-H membership card. We are also working with Red Deer County to provide students from the county with complimentary admission to the show.
As with any industry sector the future lies with our youth, and through our investment we hope to encourage their continued involvement in the agricultural sector.
