Livestock 2012 Stand Space Schedule Launched

6 February 2012, at 6:52am

UK - The stand space schedule for Livestock 2012, the rebranded Dairy Event and Livestock Show, to be held at The NEC, Birmingham, 4-5 September, has been launched on-line this week by the event’s organiser, The Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers.

“Following last year’s tremendous take up by exhibitors which resulted in 92% surveyed indicating they will rebook, we have launched the schedule three weeks earlier to allow more time for allocation and it is available on-line this year for the first time to make it easier for companies to book space,” says RABDF chief executive, Nick Everington.

“We would urge all exhibitors to submit application forms before 29 February in order to benefit from the first allocation of stand space as we expect increased up take having widened the event’s appeal to not only beef, sheep and goats, but also the pig and poultry sectors.”

He adds: “Since relocating to The NEC’s easily accessed modern venue two years ago, trade stand space has increased by 32 per cent to 480 exhibitors, of which 96 per cent indicated they will rebook the same stand space or larger in 2012."

"Their intentions reflect the fact that the vast majority 80 per cent, rated The NEC as excellent or good as a show venue, with a similar number indicating build up and breakdown was excellent or good. Quality of enquiries was rated as good or excellent by 82 per cent of exhibitors and 67 per cent of them took orders at the show or as a direct result.

”We look forward to building on these results at Livestock 2012 to provide ruminant livestock farmers with a one stop shop for all their input requirements, and also to welcome pig and poultry producers for the first time.”
