Dairy-Tech organiser, The Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers, say the event will return as normal for 2022, taking place at Stoneleigh Park on Wednesday 2 February. The Covid pandemic forced the 2021 event to take the form of a two week virtual programme – a concept that hundreds of farmers hailed ‘of great value’ to their business.
Managing director Matthew Knight explains that, whilst the feedback for the virtual event had been exceptional, the need for a return to its physical format was a necessity for the whole industry.
“After 12 months of restricted contact the return of Dairy-Tech 2022 will allow farmers to get off farm and businesses to showcase their services and products to the industry again.
“We’re working hard on evolving event content and nurturing relationships with our exhibitors, sponsors and partners to deliver an informative and technical event for all dairy farmers.
“This will mean more new products, tangible concepts for implementing on your farm and speaker programmes to address the latest topics and issues affecting the sector.”
Dairy-Tech will, as always, be the go-to platform for new product launches and is set to house a record number after almost 18 months of no industry events. Visitor and exhibitor numbers are also on track to soar and the event’s seminar programmes will continue to enhance knowledge and challenge ways of thinking.
Further visitor information, including new products and speaker hub programmes will be released in the coming months. 2020 exhibitors and companies who had booked for 2021 but not carried their booking over are able to take advantage of the loyalty rate until 16th May before the early bird rate begins.
