The Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) and British Livestock Genetics Consortium (BLG) are lending their support to a number of overseas expos and Inward Missions aimed at helping UK farming and livestock breeding organisations to promote their services on the global stage.
An Inward Mission is being planned for a group of overseas visitors to attend the National Beef Association (NBA) Beef Expo be held in Bakewell on 20th May with farm tours and a gala dinner taking place on the 19th.
Similar Inward Mission support is being put in place for the National Sheep Association (NSA) Sheep Event taking place in Malvern on 27th July as well as two overseas expos later in the year: the Irish Ploughing Match 20-22 September in Tullamore, Republic of Ireland; and Eurotier 15-18 November in Hannover, Germany.
This year’s Irish National Ploughing Championships are being held in Screggan, Tullamore, Co Offaly, Republic of Ireland 20th – 22nd September. British beef, sheep and pig breeding associations as well as genetics companies are invited to display literature at this prestigious event which last year saw an attendance in excess of 280,000 with over 1,500 exhibitors.
Eurotier, which takes place in Hannover, Germany, will once more host a British Livestock presence. Held every two years, this is the world’s largest indoor agricultural exhibition boasting 150,000+ visitors and over 2,300 exhibitors – half of which are international companies. As such, Eurotier provides UK companies with a platform for promoting their sector to a global market.
