LAMMA 2023

about 1 year ago by Natalie Smith

Our Rural Professionals team; George and new recruit Max visited LAMMA 2023 at the NEC in January this year.

The LAMMA show is the UK’s leading agricultural machinery equipment and service show and connects farmers from all sectors with companies who provide cutting edge machinery, technology and equipment for the farming industry and so a fantastic networking opportunity for our Rural team to go and take a visit, catch up with candidates and clients and see what’s about!

Neither George and Max are new to LAMMA or the industry and comment how they found this year’s visit;

“There were fewer manufacturers than expected, the show seemed to consist of more ag services and tech businesses, although still a sizeable show there seems to be a steady decline in the size over the last few years and less stands and displays; the likes of John Deere, Claas, Massey Ferguson & Case weren’t there. Each year seems to more of an opportunity to catch up with old contacts more than anything. However, footfall wise it did seem slightly busier than what we’ve seen previously – but it was raining! It was noted of the similar struggles our clients were facing when catching up with them – everyone is short of talent in all aspects be it engineering, Ag workings, land agents etc.”

Both George & Max agree the show is better suited at the NEC with a better atmosphere and more suited to poor weather than when it was at the East of England showground.

Our Rural Professionals desk here at MorePeople specialises in the recruitment of surveyors, land agents, agri business consultants, estate managers and so on.
