“More than 70% of visitors intended to make changes to their business following last year’s event,” said Daniel Johnson, ABN national sales manager for poultry.

“It really is a unique chance to see the latest new equipment and services from more than 320 exhibitors, gather advice and network with other producers.”

The fair is free to attend and will host a new Energy Zone for 2016, allowing producers to find on-farm energy generation exhibitors conveniently located together.

“More than 50% of past exhibitors have already rebooked their stand space for 2016,” says Alice Bell, head of technical events at organisers Grandstand Stoneleigh Events, adding that booking for new exhibitors will open on 1 August.

“More than 93% of last year’s 10,318 visitors rated the fair as good or excellent, and said it was valuable for their business, while 98% of exhibitors met all of their objectives. It’s an event that really delivers for the whole industry.”
