2019 Farm Machinery Show in Co. Kildare already ‘sold out’

Next year’s FTMTA (Farm Tractor & Machinery Trade Association) Farm Machinery Show is now sold out due to “extremely high demand” for exhibition space.

That’s according to the association’s chief executive Gary Ryan (pictured below).

The waiting list is now open. Prospective or potential exhibitors (i.e. manufacturers, distributors or dealers not already booked in) are still being encouraged to make contact with the association, to be placed on the aforementioned waiting list.

Last week, we reported that there was some limited remaining stand space available. At that point, the FTMTA indicated that the level of interest in “Ireland’s flagship farm machinery event” was already very high.

This, says the body, sends a “positive message about the level of confidence in the professional Irish farming sector and in the professional farm machinery industry that supports the mechanisation requirements of the sector”.

Exhibitor contact point

A ‘soft copy’ of the exhibitor pack for non-member firms of the association is available from the FTMTA’s website. Member companies can obtain a copy from the association’s offices at: [email protected] or on: 045-409309.

Exhibitor application packs were dispatched by email recently.

These were sent to all exhibitors that partook in this year’s Grass & Muck event and, also, those present at the last Farm Machinery Show in 2017.

The association’s Executive Council agreed dates for the 2019 Farm Machinery Show earlier this year. The event, which will again be held at Punchestown Event Centre near Naas (Co. Kildare), will run over three days from Thursday, February 7, to Saturday, February 9.

According to the FTMTA, the 2017 show proved to be the “most successful such event ever” – with an apparent total of almost 21,000 visitors.

It also had the “highest number of exhibitors and largest area of exhibition space to date”.
