Pig & Poultry Fair on track for May 2022!
The British Pig & Poultry Fair returns in 2022 on 10 and 11 May and is hotly anticipated as a chance for the industry to get together, see what is new and share ideas.
As the leading event for the sectors the Fair is a must attend event for anyone in the industry wanting to keep up to date. Partnered by ABN the Fair takes place every two years at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, hosting over 300 exhibitors and attracting around 10,000 visitors.
“Stand space is already over 95% sold, with strong support from the industry,” says Alice Bell, event organiser, “after what has been a torrid time for events, we are delighted there is a clear appetite from the sectors to get back to doing business face-to-face at the Fair.”
For producers the Fair is renowned as the place to find the latest ideas and solutions to take home and implement on their own farms – 80% of visitors to the last Fair planned to make changes to their business as a result of attending and 97% rated their visit as good or excellent. There really is nowhere else to hear from so many experts, meet leading producers, see suppliers and find out what is new, all in one day, under one roof.
