It’s a bigger and better LAMMA farm machinery show

LAMMA’15 will be the must-visit destination this month for farmers from across the UK and Europe with more than 40,000 people expected at the country’s largest agricultural machinery show on January 21 and 22 at the East of England Showground in Peterborough. “Since Lincolnshire machinery dealers had the foresight to establish the event in 1982, LAMMA has gone from strengthto- strength and is now the place where many manufacturers choose to launch new models and where farmers come to buy anything from a few nuts and bolts to a combine harvester,” said event director Rupert Levy. “Following last year’s successful move to the East of England Showground we are returning to the venue with some changes to make the most of its excellent combination of indoor and outdoor arenas. Peterborough is a good central location for visitors across the UK, while its proximity to airports and rail routes makes it a great international venue too.” For the second year running, AgriBank, the specialist bank run by farmers for farmers, is the headline sponsor at LAMMA’15. It is looking forward to talking to farmers at during the show about all aspects of finance for buying or leasing agricultural machinery and equipment and the financing of farming related projects. The bank’s founder Frank Sekula said: “LAMMA is one of the most important opportunities in the year to catch up with existing clients as well as increasing the visibility of AgriBank’s activities to a large part of the UK farming community. To make the site easier to navigate and allow visitors to pinpoint the stand they want to see, LAMMA’15 will see the launch of themed areas covering the cereal, roots and potatoes, livestock and diversified sectors with special areas for second-hand machinery, workshop equipment and business exhibitors. There will also be a Knowledge Trail linking exhibitors such as ADAMA UK, Bayer, Dow, Agrovista, Agrii and Syngenta. Farmers will be able to claim BASIS and NOROSO CPD points from their visit. “There really is something for everyone from those looking for just the right workshop tool, to those who want to discuss the best machinery investment to those who want advice on developing their farming business,” said Mr Levy. “It is also important to stress that LAMMA is for all farming sectors with a larger livestock machinery section than ever before. We have already had a large number of companies saying they will launch new equipment at LAMMA’15.”
