At the Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association, we are very excited to be planning ahead to the 2022 Ottawa Valley Farm Show at the EY Centre March 15-17.
As we continue to navigate the ongoing effects of the pandemic, final decision-making of OVFS22 exhibitor information will be completed a little later this season. We are watching closely the changing requirements of Ottawa Health Unit and Ontario Ministry of Health, and will be following those in place at show time.
Early in the new year, we will reach out directly to each exhibitor and confirm details with you. Exhibitors who left funds with us after the cancelled OVFS20 have a credit balance which will carry forward to payment of OVFS22 booth space. Other exhibitor space has been reserved as in the past, and new exhibitors will be considered should space become available.
We will be in touch soon – look forward to seeing everyone again at #OVFS22!
Booth space cost remains the same at $5.50 per sq ft indoor and $2.50 per sq ft outdoor.
Carpets, curtains, electrical and furnishings are all additional.
Parking and WiFi are free to all visitors and exhibitors.
Exhibitor Contract and Invoice
Digital Exhibitor Passes are distributed by EMAIL to the main (primary) contact listed on each Exhibitor account. Please ensure your company’s contact information is up to date in your Exhibitor dashboard. Exhibitors are responsible for distributing passes to their own staff. No persons will be able to enter the building without a pass.
Exhibitor Crate Storage:
Limited outdoor, covered storage is available for shipping crates. PLEASE LABEL all materials with booth number to ensure smooth move-out.

The fire and bus lane at the front of the EY Centre must be kept clear of parked vehicles at all times. Only materials which can be carried in your arms may be moved in or out through the front doors. All wheeled items must be moved in and out through the rear shipping doors of the building.
Move-out begins after the show closes at 4:30 pm on Thursday March 17th, and must be completed by 8:00 pm. Any exhibitors who choose to pack up and begin move-out before 4:00 pm will be recorded and may forfeit the opportunity to exhibit next year.
