Fieldays filling fast as interest in sites rises
Exhibition sites are nearing full occupancy for the 44th New Zealand National Agricultural Fieldays, even though the event is months away.
A total of 98 per cent of all sites at Fieldays have been acquired by agricultural-related businesses, which understand the significance of exhibiting at the renowned event.
Outdoor agricultural sites are 99 per cent occupied and the sought-after indoor Mystery Creek Pavilion is fully subscribed.
With less than 20 sites available across the 40-hectare exhibition space, organisers expect to reach capacity well ahead of previous years.
Vacant sites are predominantly in the Rural Living area.
The popular Kiwi’s Best Marquee within this area is completely sold out with companies showcasing their quality food and beverage products. In addition to these food sites, celebrity chefs will demonstrate delicious ways to use exhibitors’ premium products in the Kiwi’s Best Kitchen Theatre.
Other areas of interest include the pioneering Ag Art Wear and Innovation competitions.
The Ag Art Wear wearable arts competition seeks talented designers to make creative garments from rural products.
The Innovation competition powered by the University of Waikato, also wants radical entries. The supreme innovation award, the esteemed Golden Standard, recognises backyard agricultural inventions or improvements which have the potential to enhance farming practices.
Both competitions close on Wednesday, May 16.
