Farm Business Innovation Show 2017 set to be the best year yet!

The Farm Business Innovation Show is returning to the NEC Birmingham on the 8th & 9th of November 2017 and will be packed with the most creative products from 450 exhibitors, useful services and ideas, and 200 inspiring seminars from top experts in the industry - all at the 2016 Exhibition News Awards ‘Trade Show of the Year’ winning show!

Over the two days the NEC will be packed with visitors looking to find new and innovative ways to make the most of their land and property and the Farm Business Innovation Show will provide everything needed to make that happen. From help with setting up a glamping site or organising your property as a festival venue to raising rare breeds and brewing cider, to the essential tax, VAT, funding, grants and planning advice or succession planning - the world-class exhibitors and speakers have all the tools and knowledge you need to increase your revenue.

The speakers at this year’s event are unparalleled! We are delighted to welcome Michael Eavis of Worthy Farm and Glastonbury Music Festival who will be speaking about the link between farm and festival and how they work together. You’ll also hear from the newly crowned “Champion of Champions” from the 2017 Rural Business Awards and top digital, rural and business experts from Amazon in the Amazon Rural Academy Workshop.

The entire Farm Business Innovation Show team look forward to welcoming you to the NEC, Birmingham on the 8th & 9th of November 2017 for the event. Free tickets to attend can be registered for via
