MORE THAN 7,000 people came from far and wide to marvel at the latest products and advances in agricultural technology at the 2015 Midlands Machinery Show.
Visitors were treated to technology from all areas of the agricultural industry as well as specialist seminars at the Newark Showground event.
Organised by the Newark and Nottinghamshire Agricultural Society, The Midlands Machinery Show is now in its second year and saw more than 200 traders at the two day event.
George Taylor, show manager, said: “We have been delighted with the response from people trading and visiting the show this year. It’s brilliant to see how popular the show is becoming.
“There was a great atmosphere around the showground and even though we have more exhibitors and visitors this year pride ourselves on the intimate feel of the show and the networking opportunities this brings.
“We would like to thank the hundreds of traders and exhibitors who signed up to Midlands Machinery Show for 2015 and to all the visitors.”
Supplier of agricultural machinery and accessories, Lincolnshire-based Agri-Linc, won the award for Best Overall Stand in Show and the Agri Machinery News sponsored Best Agricultural Stand in Show.
Agri-Linc partner, Ben Whyles, said: “It’s the first time we’ve been here and I’ve been shocked to see how many visitors have come along.
“The show has been very good for the company and hopefully also worthwhile for all the visitors that have come to see us too.”
Best Non Machinery Stand was awarded to Sleaford-based Drayton Welding & Tool Connections.
Next year’s dates are confirmed as 23 & 24 November 2016. For more information and gallery images of this year’s show visit www.midlandsmachineryshow.com
