Centered around a series of in-depth panel sessions and practical speakers, and featuring over 70 exhibitors, the Future Farming Expo aims to cover an extensive range of topics within the overarching hubs.

The debate and discussion sessions will afford “ample time” for Q&As with speakers, allowing the chance to ask questions relevant to visitors’ own situations, organizers said.

Event producer of the Future Farming Expo, Cheryl Waterman, said: “This event is unique in that attendees will not be sitting through a series of lectures – participation and discussion are core elements of what we seek to achieve with the Future Farming Expo.

“Guests will go home with practical advice from sector experts with lived experience in their fields, feeling inspired and positive about tackling the challenges in farming.

“The sessions will be forward-thinking with a focus on actionable tips that people take to make their business more successful.”
