AgriScot is now a key event in the farming calendar, attracting almost 12,000 farmers and other agri-professionals from all corners of Britain and beyond. Held at the Royal Highland Centre, right next to Edinburgh airport, visitors can fly-in, fly-out same day. The location also means easy motorway access and a direct tram route from the main-line train station at Edinburgh Waverley.
AgriScot 2019 will feature over 240 trade stands and a machinery hall packed with the latest information, innovation and advice to help today’s farmers get the most from their business.
The free to attend business seminars at AgriScot are a major attraction year after year. For 2019 the packed programme will include political debate, new entrant advice, digital accounting and a sneak insight into the Oxford Farming Conference.
WORKSHOPS AND DEMONSTRATIONS
A main ring demonstration of beef cattle management techniques and workshops with appeal to all farming sectors will take place throughout the day.
SHOWCASING BEST PRACTICE
AgriScot seeks to demonstrate, showcase and reward best practice. Part of this aim is delivered by the Farm of the Year Awards. Awards are made annually to nominated farms, judged by the assessors to be the best, arable, beef, dairy and sheep units in Scotland.
DEVELOPING THE NEXT GENERATION
The AgriScot Business Skills competition encourages young farmers, students and other young agricultural professionals to demonstrate and further develop their farm business management skills. The final of the competition takes place on the day of AgriScot with the winner presented with a cheque for £1000 courtesy of sponsors, Dairymaster.
To further the AgriScot aim of showcasing new and innovative products, services and thinking, each year the AgriScot Product Innovation Award is presented. The award is open to all AgriScot trade stand exhibitors and is judged by a panel of expert judges on the day prior to AgriScot, enabling award certificates to be proudly displayed to visitors on the big day.
NEW PRODUCT LAUNCHES
AgriScot is the number one winter business event for new product launched. The event has regularly hosted the UK public debut of machines from major manufacturers such as John Deere.
TOP CATTLE ON PARADE
Top dairy cattle from throughout the British Isles make an annual pilgrimage to AgriScot to compete for the prestigious Super Cow and Super Heifer titles.
AgriScot utilises every available square metre of the huge exhibition hall complex at the Royal Highland Centre. With the whole event undercover, it can cope with the worst of Scottish November weather.
AGRISCOT 2018……… THEY SAID WHAT? FEEDBACK FROM LAST YEAR
The first thing that struck me was the buzz! I had some specific people to see and this is a great opportunity. AgriScot is great for networking and business.
