CropTec still on schedule to be ‘ face-to-face’
With the current lockdown extended and so many summer events cancelled, the CropTec Show may be one of the few opportunities this year to attend a face-to-face agricultural event. The show takes place on November 25th and 26th at the East of England Showground, Peterborough.
“Show visitors value the one-on-one, face-to-face conversations they can have with exhibitors,” says Gareth Jones, CropTec Event Manager. “Many farmers come to the show looking for inspiration. Being up close and personal to what’s new in ag science and technology provides the stimulation they’re seeking and the ability to remain agile in the ever-changing agricultural environment.”
The CropTec Show comprises more than 170 exhibitors, together with over 30 expert speakers in a mixture of seminars and knowledge hubs, plus the chance to test drive some of the latest machinery.
Alongside preparations for this year’s November show, the organisers are currently supporting farmers through their own use of technology.
“As farmers continue to put food on our tables during this period of uncertainty, we are keeping them updated from the comfort of their self-isolating cabs,” adds Nichola Bell, Marketing Lead for the CropTec Show. “Our new Crop It Like It’s Hot podcast gives growers access to the most recent developments and opinions from industry experts and farmers using a method appropriate to the present circumstances.”
The CropTec Show is organised by AgriBriefing and supported by ADAS, AHDB, BASIS, Forage Aid, NRoSO. Sponsors include Bayer CropScience – Black-grass hub sponsor, HORSCH UK – Soil hub sponsor, UPL UK – Biocontrol hub sponsor, Yara UK – Nutrition sponsor.
