Queensland’s biggest primary industry business event, the FarmFest field days, will return this year to be staged over three days from 7 to 9 June 2022
ACM Rural Events, the organisers of Elders FarmFest, has been taking a steady stream of enquiry since the conclusion of last year’s successful sales event.
General manager Kate Nugent said despite COVID-19 conditions effecting other industries, the overall outlook in agriculture was one of high optimism with record results.
The feedback received from many agri-manufacturers and service providers across Queensland and other states has positioned this year’s Elders FarmFest in a very positive light.
Ms Nugent said they were anticipating strong interest as the industry navigates the safe return of major events.
“I am certain we will see an even stronger showing of interest and support from farmers and people on the land, on the back of a record breaking visitation last year,” Kate said.
Elders FarmFest is located on its own dedicated site in Kingsthorpe Qld, just 20 kilometres west of Toowoomba Qld, in the heart of the Darling Downs, one of Australia’s richest agricultural regions.
This special event is designed to offer display, promotional and sales opportunities to all agribusinesses, from big farm machinery, tractors, tillage and irrigation equipment to pumps, power tools and everything in between.
“More than ever, FarmFest is recognised as playing an important role in the agricultural industry by offering enormous opportunities to showcase new products and services, demonstrate machinery, highlight new technology, innovation and information.
FarmFest was purchased in 2004 by ACM Rural Events, a division of Australian Community Media, the largest and leading independent regional and rural publisher in Australia. ACM Rural Events organise and promote several field days in Australia – including Australia’s largest, the AgQuip Field Days in Gunnedah NSW.
This year Elders FarmFest will be highlighting modern innovation in the agribusiness industry with the event featuring the Agri-Tech Expo, as well as the Education Expo and seminars with a spotlight on ground-breaking and exciting new farming practices to drive farming efficiency, productivity and profitability.
FarmFest is among one of the largest outdoor agricultural industry events, gathering over 60,000 farming families and consumers.
“The key to the event is to ensure the experience always puts the customer front and centre – to enable the exhibitor’s product and service to resonate with them at a deeper and more impactful level than any other marketing platform,” Kate added.
FarmFest has been a significant force in field days for the past 48 years. It is an incomparable agricultural hybrid event in Queensland, and the 2022 event will be no exception.
FarmFest runs from Tuesday to Thursday on the 7 to 9 June 2022.
The event opens from 8:30am to 4:30pm on Tuesday and Wednesday and 8:30am to 4:00pm on Thursday, with the car-parking gates open from 7.30am daily.
