FIELD days are all about connecting a potential buyer to a product. It is the ideal platform to allow people to examine every nut, bolt and feature of a display.
Seeing that product in action, however, is what everybody really wants to see, and Commonwealth Bank AgQuip 2018 will be bursting at the seams with live action demonstrations right across the field.
This year there will be numerous demonstrations featuring drones, ag tech, four-wheel-drive vehicles, saw mills, quad bike safety training lessons, motorbike skill displays, dam building exhibitions, farm machinery, as well as horse training and working dog demonstrations.
The interest shown in exhibitors wanting to go the “extra mile” and conduct live demonstrations at AgQuip shows an encouraging shift back to the golden age of field days when demonstrations were a key marketing component for exhibitors.
