150 exhibitor stands have already been confirmed for the Midlands Machinery Show, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year.

The event will take place at the Newark Showground in Nottinghamshire on November 20 and 21, 2024.

Midlands Machinery Show aims to provide a place for agricultural businesses to meet customers, build relationships, showcase products and discuss topical issues.

The topics that matter most to those working within farming and the agricultural machinery sector will be well reflected at this year’s event, organiser Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society (NNAS) said, including discussion about what impact the result of the general election is likely to have over the next five years.

NNAS has announced that the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) will host an environmental conference on the first day of the show.

The safe operation of machinery, both in the field and on the road, will be covered by experts from LANTRA, Western Power and Lincolnshire Police.

Advice will be on hand for operators and employers to help them stay safe and on the right side of the law.

A ‘huge amount of diversity’

NNAS events and development manager, Elizabeth Halsall, said: “We are pleased to see such a positive response from exhibitors which we believe is testament to the quality of the show we put on each year.

“There is a huge amount of diversity among the stands offering visitors great value for their time away from their agricultural enterprises.”

Witham Group has exhibited its range of lubricants and paints at the Midlands Machinery Show since its inception and will return in November for the two-day event.

Managing director of the company, Nigel Bottom, said: “We are proud to support the society in its work to champion agricultural heritage and modern progress across the Midlands region.

“The Midlands Machinery Show is an ideal show that combines agriculture and technology and showcases all the very best in farming and land-based products, services and machinery innovations.

“We are delighted to support the show again in November and can highly recommend this event.”

Lincolnshire-based groundscare equipment supplier Fentons of Bourne will also be exhibiting.

Its director, Glen Bellamy, said: “We’ve been attending the Midlands Machinery Show since it started and it’s just got better and better for our company.

“It’s a good show because it has a following of good local businesspeople, and everyone always seems to look forward to coming.

“A lot of what keeps making the show better is the quality of people. It’s a business event with business-minded decision makers getting together.”
