I urge all UK contractors to come along to Contractor 2017 on 14th December and join us at the only event focussed entirely on agricultural contractors. We may be ‘Farming’s Best Kept Secret’, but we must not be kept hidden away or be forgotten about when it comes to farming policy, industry development and potential financial handouts.


With an estimated 91% of farmers using a contractor, we are an important part of the industry and many sectors are becoming increasingly reliant on our services. It is therefore vital in challenging political times that we stand together and fight to make sure our unilateral voice is heard.


This year’s event promises to be both controversial and stimulating, focussing on the future for contractors. The NAAC will examine the impact of challenges in the farming industry and the influence of Brexit, putting together a package of information from leading experts to help contractors make informed decisions how to take their businesses forward.


We are putting together high profile speakers, together with a huge exhibition hall jammed with exhibitors supplying machinery and services to contracting businesses.


Whether you are well-established or just starting out, a large business or a one-man band, I urge you to support your industry and join us at a day out you cannot afford to miss.
