• Event returns after pandemic
• More than 700 exhibitors on show
• Latest products and farm services
The LAMMA Show will celebrate its 40th year as the UK’s leading agricultural machinery event when returns to the Birmingham NEC next month.
Originally due to take place in January, the show will take place on 4-5 May after it was rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic. More than 700 exhibitors are expected to fill 11 halls at the NEC.
“To celebrate this important milestone in LAMMA’s history, we are not only looking at our past, but focusing on the future of our event and the UK farming industry,” says LAMMA event manager Kate Walsh.
“We are planning some exciting new features at the show and re-inventing others. LAMMA’s beginnings are deeply rooted in bringing the best of farm machinery innovation under one roof and looking to the future; something we aim to continue for the next 40 years and beyond.”
The Farm Safety Zone, sponsored by Safety Revolution, returns to the show for the fourth consecutive year. Key organisations, charities and industry figures will raise awareness on vital aspects of farm safety and how to minimise risk and accidents on farm.
The Farming 4.0 Trail is centralised around the theme of the Future of Agriculture. It highlights the role data, robotics and other devices will play in achieving Net Zero. Exhibitors already on the 2022 Trail include Airial Robotics, Crop4Sight, Agrifac, Bayer, and more.
Look to future
Also with an eye on the future, LAMMA has partnered with the Institution of Agricultural Engineers to offer the 2022 Young Engineer Award, celebrating upcoming agricultural engineers. The award winner will be announced at the show.
“We are delighted to be part of LAMMA’s celebration of this historic moment,” says Sanjeev Khaira, director of Arc Media, which recently acquired the event from previous owners AgriBriefing.
The 2022 event is the first for two years after the show fell victim to the coronavirus pandemic. Instead of holding an in-person event, organisers focused on their digital farm machinery platform LAMMA365 instead.
The platform brings all facets of farm machinery together in one place. It contains the latest news and industry trends, review comparison tool, independent product reviews, videos, podcasts, webinars and a directory of leading manufacturers and their dealers.
