Next year’s inaugural Farm & Rural Business Event is gathering momentum, attracting a huge amount of interest from exhibitors and sponsors alike.

“Whether farmers are looking to improve efficiencies, diversify into alternative enterprises, bring new blood into the business or completely change tack, the Farm & Rural Business Event is sure to inspire them,” says David Gardner, Chief Executive of the RASE, which is supporting the event.

“Farming is going through an extremely challenging time at the moment but I’m confident that it has a bright future ahead. Right now, proactive planning alongside clear and innovative thinking is more important than ever, and this event will help farmers to do exactly that. By embracing change and thinking differently I’m convinced the industry will emerge stronger and more vibrant than ever.”

Visitors to the event will be able to obtain one-to-one business advice, pitch new ideas to potential investors, and exchange top tips with leading farmers in the Ideas Exchange Café.

Trade stand bookings already range from advisory and consultancy services to software providers, diversification possibilities and the very latest technology, illustrating the breadth of experience and advice visitors will be able to draw upon.

Top-notch speakers are also lining up for the wide range of seminars, which will focus on business inspiration, expert advice, sector specific opportunities and making the most of technology.

Iain Morris at Chavereys accountants will be leading a Business Advice Workshop on financial and tax planning. “Many farmers have great ideas on how to develop their business – whether that’s a new enterprise, renewable energy or other diversification,” he says. “Coming to the Farm & Rural Business event will hone those ideas and help to turn them into reality, but that can have considerable tax implications. We will be discussing why it’s important to create the right business structure and the tax pitfalls to avoid.”

The event, which will be free to attend, will be held at the NAEC, Stoneleigh, Warwickshire, on Wednesday 16th March 2016. “Farm & Rural Business 2016 is just what the industry needs right now,” says Alice Bell, Head of Technical Events at Grandstand Stoneleigh Events. “Whether you are a new entrant or established business in any sector, you are sure to profit from the innovative ideas, advice and technology on offer.”
