Fieldays bookings ahead of last year

Written by 

Site applications for 2012 New Zealand National Agricultural Fieldays are 13% ahead of last year and already 88% of sites are sold, say organisers.

Businesses are securing more space for the event which has The Changing Face of Farming as its premier feature, focusing on evolving land ownership models and approaches to farming. Situated in the heart of Fieldays, the Premier Feature exhibition area will have a dedicated seminar area.

Other changes for what will be the 43rd National Agricultural Fieldays include a larger International Exhibition area within the Mystery Creek Pavilion and the Kiwi’s Best marquee will also be bigger.

Applications for remaining Fieldays sites will be assigned in order of submission. Visit www.fieldays.co.nz/applicationform ; phone 07 843 4499; email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Fieldays runs June 13-16 at Mystery Creek Events Centre, 10 minutes south of Hamilton, with support from strategic partners ANZ and the University of Waikato.
