#OAgC21: The Ontario Agricultural Conference Announces, “TEC Talk Tuesdays”!

“TEC Talk Tuesdays” gives OAgC21 conference participants the opportunity to visit, discuss, and ask questions on conference sessions and topics.

Available to Registered conference participants only!

A PDF of this TEC Talk Tuesdays Announcement is available here!

In addition to the 34 ON DEMAND sessions and 6 LIVE sessions offered on January 6th & 7th, with all 40 sessions available until March 31st, the Ontario Agricultural Conference is adding TEC Talk Tuesdays. A series of seven consecutive Tuesday evenings beginning Tuesday January 12th, these sessions offer participants the opportunity to engage directly with speakers and other participants in a “Live” format.

Each Tuesday will focus on a specific topic area addressed in the conference lineup. Speakers and experts in the field will be available each of these seven Tuesdays from 7:27 to 8:27 pm.

This offers participants what is not possible with recorded sessions: the opportunity to ask questions, have discussions, share experiences, meet neighbours, visit and make connections, all live and as face to face as is possible with a virtual event.

The topic schedule for TEC Talk Tuesdays is below. OAgC21 registrants will be emailed a Zoom link each Tuesday morning for that evening’s session. Review the recorded sessions for the appropriate Tuesday night ahead of time so you are fully prepared for some great interaction!  

We are excited by the opportunity TEC Talk Tuesdays brings, and hope you can join every Tuesday from 7:27 to 8.27 pm as we add to your #OAgC21 experience!
