Farm Business Innovation started in 2013 at Olympia, London. In its second year (2014) the show had grown by 170% and for 2015 the show had grown so much we had to re-locate to the NEC, Birmingham. Since it’s inception the show has won national acclaim as Best Trade Show at EN Awards.
The event is designed to provide you with the inspiration, advice and resources you need to innovate, diversify and make more money from your land. Whether you want to gear up for glamping, look into alternative crops or livestock (crocodiles anyone?), start a spa, run events on your land, weddings, tourists, farmshops or revitalise rural retail, you'll find an amazing selection of ideas and inspiration at this incredible exhibition and conference.
Both days are packed with unmissable seminars and workshops from the UK's finest speakers offering expert advice, guidance and support, as well as market-leading exhibitors to help you find the best opportunities, products and services for your rural business.
We have over 16,500 parking spaces at the NEC, which means less time searching for a spot and more time enjoying the show.
