The 2019 International Plowing Match & Rural Expo (IPM) is extending an invitation to businesses, community organizations and government to become partners in the largest outdoor event of its kind in North America!
IPM 2019 will be happening September 17-21 in Verner, within the municipality of West Nipissing. Nearly one hundred acres of fertile farmers’ fields are transformed into a Tented City with temporary streets, entertainment stages, live demos, exhibits and other special features. There is so much to see and do! Surrounding Tented City are hundreds of acres of free parking for visitors, an RV park with upwards of 1000 lots and of course, the competitive Plowing fields.
The goal of the IPM is not only to educate the public about the importance of agriculture but also to showcase our culture in West Nipissing and surrounding area. Approximately 80,000 visitors are expected to attend this 5-day event which will provide excellent opportunities for participating companies and organizations to showcase their products and services. Exhibitors and corporate partners are the #1 attraction within Tented City. Thousands of visitors from across North America will enjoy their visit and will leave with a desire to return. Tourism industry figures put the economic impact of the IPM at about $25 million.
” The beauty of our event is the fact that it belongs to the community and surrounding region. It is our IPM. Numerous volunteers have been working diligently in the planning of this significant community celebration. Our sponsorship initiative allows others to join our collaborative partnership and leverage our Joie de Vivre in marketing their products or services. Make it your IPM”, says Neil Fox, President of IPM 2019.
