AGRISCOT THE FARM BUSINESS EVENT
AGRISCOT, one of the premier events in UK agriculture, continues to develop its appeal to all sectors of the industry, both to the trade and a wide cross section of farmers eager to seek out products, services, advice and information for their farming businesses.
The 2015 event, which takes place on November 18, will feature more than 250 trade stands, competitions for aspiring young agricultural professionals, new products, business seminars and technical demonstrations for a variety of products and services covering every aspect of agriculture.
BEST COMMERCIAL AND TECHNICAL ADVICE
Those seeking answers to the myriad of questions on their own circumstances will find them at Scotland’s Farm Business Event, where the best commercial and technical advice is on offer.
AgriScot started out as a specialist event for dairy farmers, and over the years has grown in size and scope to become the leading business and networking event for the entire agricultural industry. The one-day exhibition attracts farmers and agricultural professionals from across Scotland, and, thanks to its proximity to Edinburgh Airport, from all over Britain and beyond. The footprint of AgriScot has expanded and it now makes full use of all the massive exhibition halls at the Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston.
AgriScot Chairman, Andrew Moir, said: ‘AgriScot continues to go from strength to strength, and 2014 was our best year yet with a record number of visitors and exhibitors. The fact we have been shortlisted for the Scottish Event Awards is testament to the success and popularity of the exhibition, which exists to promote best practice and excellence in the farming sector.’
LIVE STREAMED ON THE INTERNET
The dairy cattle judging at AgriScot 2015 is set to take place before a worldwide audience. For the first time this year, the judging of the dairy cattle in the HSBC Show Ring at AgriScot will be live streamed on the internet.
AgriScot’s Martin Dare explains: ‘We have been encouraged in recent years by comments from our judges and other leading figures affirming that AgriScot now hosts the premier show of dairy cattle anywhere in the British Isles. The decision to showcase these exceptional animals to a world-wide audience is a natural next step.’
A NEW SPONSORSHIP PACKAGE
A new sponsorship package has been established with Anpario plc to support the filming and live streaming of the entire day’s programme direct from the show ring. Anpario plc are best known in the UK for their Optivite range of high performing natural feed additives for livestock.
Hayley Verney from Anpario stated: ‘We thought that the revolutionary idea of filming and streaming the day’s events was a sponsorship opportunity not to be missed. It’s very exciting to be involved with the very first web streaming of such a prestigious industry event and I feel honoured to be presenting an award in the ring on the day.’
