Book now for Dairy Event and Livestock Show

Those wanting to exhibit at this year’s Dairy Event and Livestock show should submit their application forms before 25 March in order to benefit from the first allocation of stand space.

Stand space schedules for the show, to be held at The NEC, Birmingham on Tuesday 6 and Wednesday 7 September have now been issued by the event’s organiser, The Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers (RABDF).

Following the success of last year’s event when 86% of the exhibitors surveyed said they would rebook, RABDF chief executive Nick Everington expects increased interest for stands at the 2011 event.

“We expect increased demand for space with incorporation of the National All Breeds Dairy Show and the introduction of New Smithfield, a technical demonstration on beef breeding and finishing.”

He adds: “Relocating the event to The NEC in 2010 encouraged visitor numbers to rise by 10% to 16,000. Furthermore, the number of exhibitors increased to 480, of which 94% indicated they will book the same space or larger in 2011.

“Their intentions reflect the fact that the vast majority – 92% – rated The NEC as excellent or good as a show venue.

“We look forward to building on these results at the Dairy Event and Livestock Show 2011 to provide ruminant livestock farmers with a one-stop shop for all their input requirements.”
