More than 600 exhibitors and tens of thousands of leading farmers from across all sectors and regions are expected to visit over the two days.
Originally planned for January, the show was postponed amid concerns over the Omicron variant of Covid-19. However, with all restrictions now lifted, LAMMA 2022 is going ahead unhindered allowing the agricultural industry to reconnect after a difficult couple of years.
Chris Taylor from the National Farmers' Union of England and Wales (NFU) said he and his colleagues were looking forward to seeing visitors. “The NFU is delighted that LAMMA has secured new dates in May to enable this key agricultural event to go ahead in 2022. It’s more important than ever that we make up for the many lost face to face opportunities due to the pandemic, and LAMMA presents us with the opportunity to engage with thousands of our members over the two days.”
Kubota will be using the event to unveil its M6-001 Utility series tractor range. Marketing manager Rob Edwards said LAMMA had the 'presence and scale’ to showcase its new products, as well as positively promoting the wider industry and machinery sector. "We like LAMMA and it represents the scale and significant profile of the industry," he said.
James Hudson of agricultural engineers JF Hudson said this is their first trade show in two years and a chance to connect and launch new products. “People in the sector are very resilient and innovative. There have been many changes and developments within agriculture so we are also looking forward to seeing what other exhibitors are showcasing.”
