The National Association of Agricultural Contractors (NAAC) is set to hold its annual conference and exhibition at the East of England Showground in Peterborough on 14 December 2017

The morning session will include a selection of speakers including outgoing NFU president Meurig Raymond who will talk about the future of farming, and Waitrose agricultural manager Duncan Sinclair who will explain how contractors fit into the supply chain.

After a hot lunch, attendees have the chance to wander around more than 40 contractor-focused exhibitors with a display area rammed full of machinery, along with a business hub which details the many benefits for NAAC members including legal services and insurances.

There’s also practical advice seminars from Dan Cox, a road traffic expert at Avon and Somerset police, and John Deere talking about its agriculture management solutions.

Entry costs £25 for members and £45 for non-members.
