Bundaberg, the land of roaming sugar cane, our nation’s finest ginger beer and rum and now too the Agriculture and Horticulture Expo Agrotrend. The choice to hold the farm festival in Bundaberg is a no brainer; being one of the largest and most integral productive agriculture regions in Queensland. Where else could you put a two-day assembly of farming and rural lifestyle activities that showcases the latest tractor technology and farming innovations?
With the 2017 program in the works, there’s a lot of speculation about what will unfold at this year’s event. Last year visitors were treated to an Agrotrend Strongman Competition that pitched local lifters in a human tractor pull battle, an Australasian BBQ competition (think tantalizing lamb rib cook-off) and a sheep dog trial attended by some of our country’s best cattle dog trainers.
For those in attendance preferring to see how a tractor performs rather than how it looks being tugged along by a muscly bloke, there was plenty of opportunity at Agrotrend 2016. The Festival has built its legacy on showcasing a range of tractor models from international and local brands, made for different duties and carrying different price ranges. It provides farmers some perspective on farming equipment they may have perused online but been hesitant to purchase.
The expo will reach its 40th anniversary in 2017 and aspires to celebrate the milestone with a spectacle of live events and demonstrations. Agrotrend will celebrate 40 years of innovation in sugar, horticulture, irrigation, machinery, livestock and everything Agro.
The Bundaberg region rests in a prime position to connect Queensland’s farmers, horticulturalists and agricultural figures for two days of discussion, business growth and opportunity. Agrotrend caters to potential exhibitors by offering a multitude of site sizes and exhibition space. Giving companies the power to tailor their exhibiting package to their individual needs. To apply for a site at this year’s Agrotrend head over to the Expo’s webpage and submit your registration before the spaces are all gone.
