LAMMA 2021 cancelled due to ongoing uncertainties surrounding Covid- 19
Following the ongoing uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Agribriefing, the owners of the LAMMA show, have taken the difficult decision to cancel LAMMA 2021 on 25-26 May at the NEC. The show will return to its previously successful and proven slot at the start of the year. LAMMA 2022 will be held on 11-12 January 2022 at the NEC.
Kate Walsh, Event Manager for LAMMA said: “The decision was not an easy one. We fully understand how important the show is to the industry and we were keen to make it happen in May. But after listening to the concerns of our stakeholders, and appreciating how much planning and work goes in to preparing for a show like this, a decision had to be made. As always, the safety of our visitors, exhibitors and staff is our top priority. With the lack of clarity around lockdown restrictions, particularly those related to holding trade exhibitions, it became clear an early decision was imperative.
We would like to thank everyone for the amazing support we have received throughout the year. We know how much everyone wants the show to take place but with the ongoing uncertainty we had to make a decision. Under the current circumstances this feels like the right thing to do."
The LAMMA show 2022 will have 11 halls packed with new ideas and cutting-edge equipment and over 700 exhibitors will showcase the latest tractors, combines, drills and cultivation kit, as well as a wide range of products, services and tools.
LAMMA joins a raft of other shows postponed or cancelled due to the pandemic including:
The Royal Welsh Show
Smallholding and Countryside Festival
Clwyd’s Feature County Year
Cheshire Trade Show
UK Dairy Expo
