Countdown to National Ploughing Championships 2018
The countdown is on for the National Ploughing Championships with a little over a month to go until the big event. For many this represents a culmination of many months of hard work and anticipation for what truly is one of the biggest agriculture events in Ireland, but also what is the biggest outdoor event in Europe.
This year sees the National Ploughing Championships taking place for the third and final year on the outskirts of Tullamore at the site in Screggan which last year drew record crowds of 291,000+ people! The event itself kicks off on the 18th of September and is expected to draw similar numbers to those seen last year after the previous year’s success.
Speaking last week, Dezynamite’s owner Jesse Morris said:
“In anticipation of this year’s event Dezynamite have geared up significantly to meet all of our clients requirements in advance of the show. Typically we would see a huge uptake in orders for items such as Printed Roll Up Banners, flyers and leaflet printing, brochure design, promotional products (such as pens, printed balloons, keyrings, etc) and temporary signage and large format printing, all of which we are capable of turning around in-house quite quickly. This year a lot of businesses seem a lot more organised than in previous years, but no doubt there will still be some last minute orders in the lead up to the event so it is shaping up to be a busy couple of weeks for us. This is a fantastic event and ultimately it provides a boost for many businesses in the area, which no doubt will be very welcome”
There is serious worldwide appeal with exhibitors, international buyers and visitors coming from countries such as Turkey, the USA, UK, Germany, India, Poland, Belgium, New Zealand, France, Saudi Arabia, Latvia and the Netherlands all attending.
With record crowds of 291,500 visitors and over 1,700 exhibitors last year and the site in Screggan proving to be a phenomenal success, signals would suggest another ‘great ploughing’ is on the way.”
There will be an array of new exhibitors as well as hundreds of outstanding veteran companies showcasing their products and services in dynamic ways.The dairy sector will be very well catered for with many new additions. The very latest models in agricultural machinery will be on display, quality livestock, a Forestry Village, Motor Show, Food Fayre, Hunt Chase, Fashion Shows, Live Music & Dancing, Sheep Dog Trials, an extended Local Enterprise Village with over 80 exhibitors as well as National Baking Competitions, Craft Shows and many topical seminars.
