What is AgriScot?
The Place To Do Business…The UK’s top Farm Business Event!
AgriScot’s status as a leading business event is emphasised by visitor surveys which reveal that the main reasons visitors gave for attending were they wanted to see the latest products, to do business and to meet and talk to others in the industry
Martin Dare, the man behind the organisation of AgriScot said this was a tremendous endorsement of the event. “We have delighted that in a survey undertaken 92% of exhibitors indicated they want to come back and a good proportion of those returners have told us they want more space.”
Both the Highland and Lowland halls at Ingliston have been full to capacity in recent years and the waiting list for space has grown. The most recent independent survey carried out by Ian Solly Associates also revealed that 96.2% of the visitors interviewed stated that the show had either met or exceeded their expectations.
While AgriScot started life as a specialist dairy event and still continues to attract the top exhibitors to its high quality dairy competition, the show now attracts a wide range of visitors with the survey showing beef farmers predominated, followed by those in the dairy sector. Arable, pig and poultry farmers also attended in large numbers confirming AgriScot as an all-industry event
What AgriScot Exhibitors and Visitors Said About the 2018 Event
The emphasis on business is clearly demonstrated when speaking to the exhibitors and visitors who attended the 2018 event:
On the day:
“We always find farmers come to do business at Agriscot.
Because AgriScot is a business event our trade customers are here as are the end users.
This is without a doubt the best show we do in terms of meeting dairy farmers, but we see a lot of beef and sheep farmers too and really there is a great mix from all sectors.” – Jim Adair, GB Sales Manager, Animax Limited
“AgriScot has been very good for us, we have seen people from all over Scotland, England and Ireland. People like the fact that this is a free event and come to do business. I hear feedback that farmers some farmers don’t get to summer shows as they’re too busy, but this is an ideal time of year for working farmers.” – Dave Badder, Isuzu, Isuzu UK
“We have had a very busy day. The new 9000 forager harvester range has attracted a lot of interest. Farmers at AgriScot love to talk tech and get an insight into new and future products.” – Michael Warden, John Deere
“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.” – Bill Gray, Arable Farmer
“There are plenty of chances to network at AgriScot and the variety of trade stands presents some brilliant business opportunities. One of my friends even had a job interview!” – Amelia Lynch, Vet
“AgriScot is the place for making professional contacts and getting business advice.” – Hugh St Joseph, Beef Farmer
