AgriScot Press Releases
AgriScot, THE Farm Business Event, to be held on Wednesday 20 November 2013 at The Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston, Edinburgh, is now open for trade exhibitor bookings.
Interested parties are asked to book straight away in order to secure a place – exhibition space is in high demand and normally sells out several months prior to the event.
Andrew Moir, AgriScot Chairman, says of the event and the exhibition opportunity:
“We are grateful for the positive feedback received from exhibitors for our most recent event in November 2012.
Due to the popularity of the event as a place to trade and do business we have operated a growing annual waiting list for exhibition space over recent years and this has caused us to look at ways we can expand. We therefore hope that for the 2013 event we will be able to accommodate a greater number and an even broader range of exhibitors.
Our efforts to attract more of the right people to AgriScot will continue this year and we have appointed a new PR team (Scene & Herd) to promote the event. This will further cement AgriScot as THE Farm Business Event and demonstrate the value of exhibiting at the show.
In addition to taking stand space at AgriScot we can also offer a range of sponsorship opportunities to raise your profile further. Regardless of your needs, please feel free to get in touch to discuss opportunities.”
There were celebrations at specialist rural PR agency Scene & Herd at the end of last week as a deal to partner the increasingly successful AgriScot event was struck.
Scene & Herd, launched in 2009 by former NFU Scotland Communications Manager, Anna Davies, and joined in 2012 by former SCA Director Ross (Monty) Montague, has built a strong working relationship with the AgriScot team over the past three years.
Scene & Herd will now take on the task of promoting AgriScot in the run up to this years’ event on Wednesday 20th November.
Commenting on the new agreement, Anna Davies of Scene & Herd said:
“It has been great to be involved in the growth and success of AgriScot over the past few years, ensuring that the event is well known within the agricultural sector and that nobody misses out on the opportunity of attending such a great business event.
“For Scene & Herd to now take on the mantle of promoting the entire event is brilliant and we look forward to seeing AgriScot grow even further.”
Andrew Moir, AgriScot Chairman, commented:
“The growth of AgriScot in recent years has been hugely encouraging. Our aim now is to underline that AgriScot is The Farm Business Event for all sectors and for farmers from all over Scotland.
“With Edinburgh airport on our doorstep there is no reason why it cannot be an event for farmers from all over Britain and elsewhere too.
“We are delighted to have brought Scene & Herd on board to get stuck in to the task of attracting even more business minded farmers and rural professionals to AgriScot.”
