Dear Colleagues, Friends and PSIW Attendees,

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to attend the 41st Annual Poultry Industry Workshop in the beautiful Banff, Alberta. This year's event will take place on October 4th - October 6th at the prestige Banff Centre.

The Poultry Service Industry Workshop (PSIW) has become one of the leading poultry workshops in North America. We are proud of the fact that we have speakers from around the Globe investing our Canadian Poultry Industry. We believe that a great conference develops over time. This is a result of solid speakers, combined with a well thought out program, Key Partnerships with Sponsors and a majestic location contributing to great success.

The goal behind this year's PSIW Program is focused on practical, relevant and inspiring topics. This year's committee took time to determine what we are being challenged with as an industry and connect today's challenges with inspiring speakers that will leave each of you attending, encouraged and excited about the future of our Poultry Industry.  This year we will hear from speakers from Denmark, the USA, and fellow Canadians. No workshop is a success without the people attending, the sponsorships supporting and our audience participation. Our enthusiastic speakers will provide more value when we tale the time to listen, resulting in questions and discussions surly to keep you involved. Our Banff Centre Location is truly spectacular with great accommodations, 5 star dining and mountainous views that are unforgetable.

During this two day event we encourage you to make contacts with new industry colleagues and laugh a little too. We are excited to have another Awards Banquet where we will honour a fellow Service Man for their past achievements, and no banquet is complete without our home grown Turkey Dinner which is always a hit. We have a great evening of entertainment planned to create comradery & competition amongst everyone, surely to make you build new friendships and enjoy an evening together.

We believe we have all the right formulas to create another Successful Workshops. I encourage you to take advantage of the early bird registration. Booking your accommodations at the Banff Center will bring additional savings to you and help with our convention fees. I would like to thank the Committee Members for the dedicated work and input into this year's event, also a sincere thanks to Kate and Kim from ConventionALL Management for their support in handling all the logistics. Lastly I would like to thank each one of you who sponsor and attend this event, for you are the real reason for our continued success.


Look forward to seeing you in Banff!
