AFTER months of event cancellations, postponements and transitions onto virtual platforms, Cumbrian farmers and agricultural organisations can rest assured there is at least one event still on track to take place face-to-face in 2020.

Recently, the Government’s green light to business events and conferences from October1 means The CropTec Show organisers can go full steam ahead. The show returns to the East of England Showground in Peterborough for a live event on November 25 and 26 2020.

The Show will be held in accordance with the latest UK Government and Public Health England recommendations regarding COVID-secure business-to-business trade exhibitions. The show management is working closely with the East of England Showground and the exhibitions industry to ensure the latest advice and best practice is being followed.

“I am delighted we are able to host The CropTec Show 2020 again, said Jason Lunn, Venue Director at the East of England Arena and Events Centre. “The venue has been at the forefront of planning for outdoor and indoor events as part of the industry associations’ working with government. We are delighted to see the latest announcement that indoor events will return from October. We are working with the organisers to provide a safe environment for exhibitors and visitors and look forward to The CropTec Show 2020 opening on November 25.”

This year’s event will once again bring together the best and brightest in arable farming, providing key take-home, practical messages to develop on farm.

As social distancing measures will reduce ticket availability, the CropTec Show is also making seminars, hub talks and other content available, live, online.

With the exhibition halls filling up fast, more than 170 companies will showcase a wide range of arable technology, up-to-date agronomy and best business practice.

The event is free to attend.

Tickets must be booked in advance due to the government social distancing measures. Registration will be launching in August but you can pre-register your interest in the meantime via the CropTec website.
