The largest annual gathering of Ontario pork producers will not be happening in person in 2020 due to COVID-19 health concerns.

The Ontario Pork Congress (OPC) board of directors has announced that the 2020 Ontario Pork Congress will not be held in its traditional in-person format. The show was scheduled for June 17 and 18.

Instead the Ontario Pork Congress will transition to hosting an online virtual show as a result of the quickly changing COVID-19 pandemic and with guidance from public health officials.

The OPC board’s statement says it understands that there will be many questions with respect to what the new virtual format will look like and what this change means to producers, sponsors, exhibitors, participants and industry partners.

The board of directors will distribute details and information as it becomes available to all that are involved with the OPC event.

“We appreciate your patience as we work to finalize these details and work to organize the new OPC virtual event. To our valued exhibitors who have committed to trade show space, details will be provided in the near future regarding options in making this transition,” the organization said.
