A local seed company has now etched their names into the history of the new Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre.
K3 Seeds agreed to a five-year naming commitment for one of the meeting suites in the building.
The suite is designed to be a space for small meetings, training sessions and breakout space.
Mike Warkentin, the CEO of the Lethbridge & District Exhibition says it’s important to build partnerships within the ag community as the new centre is set to welcome visitors.
“I think what is really unique about it and important about it is it showcases our connection to the actual agricultural production group here in Southern Alberta. And so K3 is a locally owned agriculture production company, started as a farm family, and so it’s important to make that connection. We’ve had a lot of opportunity to partner with corporate entities here in Southern Alberta, and I think these types of partnerships are specifically important and quite frankly, crucially important for the success of ventures like we’re about to undertake with the New Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre.”
The new Agri-food Hub & Trade Centre will have its official grand opening with local and provincial dignitaries in attendance on Thursday afternoon.
