Exhibitor Information - 104th IPM in 2023

Please join us for the 104th International Plowing Match and Rural Expo (IPM) being held in Bowling Green (between Grand Valley and Laurel), Dufferin County from Tuesday, September 19 to Saturday, September 23, 2023.

The IPM is the largest outdoor event of its kind in North America. There is so much to see and do at the IPM! In addition to hundreds of vendors and exhibitors in Tented City, there are entertainment stages and special features including antiques & heritage, education, lifestyles, quilting and regional exhibits. Surrounding Tented City are hundreds of acres of free parking for visitors, an RV Park, and of course, the competitive Plowing Fields. Within a couple of weeks after the event, the land is returned to its original condition for growing crops again.

For our expected 75,000+ visitors, we believe our exhibitors and corporate partners are the #1 attraction within Tented City. The IPM can provide great opportunities for companies and organizations to showcase their products and services. Our exhibitors include equipment and vehicle dealers/manufacturers, agricultural & rural service providers, agricultural & community non-profits, food vendors, artisans, home improvement and décor vendors, apparel suppliers, and more!
