Dependant on which side of the fence Landowners sit, the forthcoming annual Lamma event could either be a welcome distraction of all the uncertainties surrounding their future after Brexit negotiations, or alternatively, it could be a timely exhibition that allows them to pro-actively assess the options presented within the industry to combat any potential threats.
The UK’s largest farm, machinery, equipment and agricultural exhibition occurs next week, Wednesday 17th January and Thursday 18th January, from The East of England Showground, Peterborough, PE2 6XE.
Last year, in excess of 40,000 visitors attended the show to view the latest technology in machinery, vehicle, agrochemical and seed displays, showcased by the 850 exhibitors who are scheduled to turn-out.
While the recent news that the Government are to maintain subsidies for a further a further five-years will be welcomed by the majority of Landowners, Farmers and Industry professionals in attendance, each of them will be seeking longer-term solutions and will be grateful to learn that local business Mick George will be present to offer sustainable solutions.
Leading with the ‘Cash Under Your Feet’ slogan, which specifically considers the opportunity to earn royalties by extracting surplus aggregates from beneath the surface, the business has developed the concept of reaping financial rewards, with it’s on-stand entertainment offering.
The ‘Bank of Mick’ campaign has graced the event for the last two years, and has been dubbed one of the most successful ever by event organisers. This year will see the return of the Roulette Wheel and the chance for visitors to win up to £1,000.
Keep your eye out for the glamorous assistants who will be sporting ‘Cash Under Your Feet’ cat-suits, providing direction towards Hall 5, Stand 515.
In addition, Mick George Ltd offer a whole host of contracting provisions that could be utilised by Landowners. Earthworks, Demolition, Hazardous Waste, Asbestos Management, Concrete and Aggregate supply and Remediation provisions will also be presented.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’With 40 years’ experience, the business has forged some fantastic working relationships with various Landowners whilst providing them with substantial funds from the services we offer. Operating in a highly competitive market, we recognise that Landowners are looking to diversify in order to maximise the potential of their land especially with the prospect of Brexit causing further disruption.’’
Stump continued: ‘’Lamma 18’ is a huge event in the agricultural calendar, one that the business uses as a platform to showcase the services we offer landowners. The event can be quite intense, purely from the perspective that there is so much to see in a relatively short period, that’s why we have introduced the roulette wheel and the cash incentive to hopefully ease any stresses from the busy schedule.’’
