A preview of LAMMA
LAMMA is the UK’s leading agricultural equipment and services show and it takes place next month in Peterborough in the east of England.
Most of the main Irish and international machinery companies will be showing their wears at the event. Entrance is free and there is no requirement to register to attend.
According to organisers, they are expecting upwards of 40,000 farmers from the UK and overseas, including a huge following from Ireland.
The show’s success over the past number of years has forced the organisers to relocate for a third time in its history, this time to the East of England Showground in Peterborough.
Speaking to Agriland Cliff Preston, LAMMA Event Director said: “LAMMA prides itself on being the UK’s leading farm machinery equipment and services show and we are dedicated to offering a show that can continue to develop and provide both exhibitors and visitors with the best possible experience. After a lot of discussion and consultation with the market, we’ve decided to make the move to do exactly that.
He added: “The new location is ideal as it will both allow for the show’s growth and will also help us to overcome many of the challenges visitors and exhibitors have highlighted – specifically by making access easier for both exhibitors and visitors. Despite the continued success and growth, the show will be staying true to its roots.
“Although the location is changing, the fundamentals of the show most definitely are not,” said Preston. “We are committed to preserve the unique heritage and the friendly and informal atmosphere of the LAMMA show. It remains, at its heart, an easy and free to attend event for farmers to see the latest agricultural machinery, equipment and services from around the world.”
