A local ag-retail company is showing its dedication to the communities it serves. Independent Crop Inputs (ICI) has committed to a five-year partnership with Lethbridge & District Exhibition, coming on as naming partner of the ICI Meeting Suite in the new Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre.

“Our purpose is to bring people together and provide opportunities for collaboration, innovation and economic growth to flourish, which aligns perfectly with ICI’s work,” says Mike Warkentin, CEO, Lethbridge & District Exhibition, in a statement. “ICI understands that in southern Alberta, the value of a face-to-face interaction and a handshake still means something, and represents what is great about our agriculture community. We’re thankful for their partnership and for being supportive of what we are working to achieve.”

The ICI Meeting Suite is located in the MNP Meeting Centre on the main floor of the Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre. The 1,000 square foot room is ideally suited for small meetings, breakout space, training sessions and more. The space can also be combined with other meeting suites in the MNP Meeting Centre to host larger meetings and events. As part of the partnership, ICI will also continue to have a strong presence at Ag Expo from Feb. 27-29 in the Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre.

With locations in both Taber and Scandia, ICI offers services in crop nutrition, crop protection, agronomy, seeds, and other agriculture services, with a focus on sustainability and environmental stewardship.

“ICI immediately recognized the value of partnering with Lethbridge & District Exhibition and the Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre,” says Vaughn Penner, CEO, Independent Crop Inputs, in a statement. “This facility is clearly a cornerstone for agriculture in southern Alberta. We believe deeply in the future of this region and happily partner with groups who are aligned in this belief. This state-of-the-art facility will showcase agriculture for years to come and we are pleased to join like-minded groups in growing the future.”
