Newark Showground looks forward to third Midlands Machinery Show

ORGANISERS at Newark Showground are once again looking forward to the Midlands Machinery Show this November as they prepare to host a series of new product launches and technical seminars from hundreds of exhibitors.

Organised by the Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society, the show prides itself on being a platform for small to medium-sized agricultural businesses to showcase their diverse range of machinery and innovation to those who work and have an interest in agriculture.

George Taylor, show manager, said: “After launching the show two years ago, we are pleased to now be entering our third year and showcasing some of the newest and best machinery for modern farming methods.

“The event is increasingly attracting thousands of visitors from across the country. We’ve had a tremendous amount of positive feedback about the show and we pride ourselves on our ability to attract the big name brands in the agricultural industry while also maintaining that important sense of intimacy.”

As well as attracting around 300 exhibitors, the Midlands Machinery Show holds seminars on a number of topics ranging from renewable water and its use in farming, the impact of climate change on the industry and also free legal advice for businesses.

eorge added: “Due to last year’s popularity we will run another programme of technical seminars run by industry experts throughout the duration of the show. Visit our website to keep on top of all the opportunities at the show.”

Gavin Pell, the Managing Director of one of the shows regular exhibitors Chandlers Ltd said: “We were very pleased to see the excellent turn-out of the local farmers supporting the growing Midlands Machinery Show. The organisers created a good layout, at a sensible time of year, and it has been enthusiastically embraced by the farmers who want to be able to speak with the local dealers and manufacturers’ personnel - which is not possible at the larger national shows.

“We are really looking forward to exhibiting at the 3rd running of the show this autumn.”

Indoor and outdoor exhibition space is now available to book and organisers are encouraging exhibitors to secure their place early to avoid disappointment.

A PANEL of experts will be joining the Midlands Machinery Show this year to discuss how a soft or hard BREXIT may affect the industry.

The special breakfast debate is hosted and sponsored by property consultants, financial experts and lawyers from Streets Chartered Accountants, Langleys Solicitors, NatWest and Brown & Co are calling for visitors to the show on 23 and 24 November to register now and secure their place.

“We feel that the agricultural industry will be most affected by BREXIT,” said James Pinchbeck, marketing partner at Streets Chartered Accountants.

“As a result we felt that a breakfast seminar before the start of the Midlands Machinery Show would be a great opportunity to give farmers and those in the industry the chance to hear about what will affect them following the trigger of Article 50 and how they should prepare.
