Cereals LIVE – the online version of the arable event – was a big success, attracting more than 10,000 visitors.
The two-day online event was packed with webinars demonstrations of machinery, virtual tours and interactive chats and the farming industry got involved in a massive way. The top sessions attracted over 800 people and 9,000+ live viewers logged on to the show.
NFU president Minette Batters and Defra minister Victoria Prentis went head-to-head on the topic of food security and imports, with the NFU’s recent petition on maintaining high food standards topping one million.
The reach for the 18 webinars was global with 15% of attendees joining from outside the UK from a total of 78 different countries.
Closing the event on each day was a virtual beer tent, where visitors could relax with friends, request live music from the resident DJ and pledge money partner charity R.A.B.I.
Suzy Deeley, R.A.B.I Corporate Partnership Manager, took part in the Young Farmers Forum webinar, looking at current challenges and discussing what help is available.
Thank you to Comexposium for choosing R.A.B.I to be show charity again in 2020 and congratulations on a great event
