The organic sector event of the year

Each year, members of the organic community come together at our annual BC Organic Conference. The event is a chance to visit with current and future leaders in the BC organic sector, exchange ideas, eat amazing meals, learn from experts, and return home inspired by our incredible community before the growing season kicks into high gear.

The BC Organic Conference is open to anyone interested in organic agriculture, including Organic BC members, farmers looking to transition, researchers, students, like-minded organizations, and members of the general public. All are welcome!

2022 BC Organic Conference

Join us for the 29th annual BC Organic Conference!

Trade Show and Sponsorship Opportunities

Trade show: This year, your booth will be featured in both an in-person trade show and a virtual trade show that provides another layer of networking and promoting your business/organization to registrants.

Podcast sponsorship: Be acknowledged as a conference sponsor in our new podcast series, which will be released ahead of the conference, and receive a trade show booth as described above.

Silent auction: We’re also seeking donations for our silent auction fundraiser, which will be hosted online in the lead up to the conference. Specifically, we’re looking for either gift cards/online coupon codes, or physical items that could be sent out directly from you to the winning bidder (participants would bid on the item, claim from you, and they would pay the shipping fees). If you would like to contribute to the silent auction, please email events@organicbc.org.
