More than 500 innovating farmers, landowners and entrepreneurs will be gathering to exhibit for the annual Farm Business Innovation Show on the November 8 and 9. With a ‘world of ideas’ the show encourages businesses, farmers, land owners and managers who are considering farm diversification, whether that’s leisure, tourism, food production or farm shops, to visit to learn, share ideas and insight on ways to make money from land.

With a diverse range of businesses exhibiting to highlight farm diversification and ways to add value to land, the Farm Business Innovation Show is a fabulous free to attend event at the NEC in Birmingham.

Echoing this objective to innovate, the Farm491 team and a selection of its agritech members will be taking a trade stand at the show. You’ll find them on stand 982.

Online machinery trading platform Farm-r will be on the stand to explain its efficiency saving platform for sharing agricultural machinery – a concept that enables farmers to make money from un-used machinery at time of low season. DiAgrii will also join the stand. Founder Ian Bester, will be showcasing his smart livestock monitoring app that tracks and records animal location and movement to provide farmers with important information on animal health and well-being.

Farm491’s Programme Manager, Dr Ali Hadavizadeh will be giving his ‘Top Tips on Launching and Scaling a New Venture’ in a seminar session on Wednesday November 8 at 2.45pm.

Many entrepreneurs looking to launch a business can fail at the first hurdle by not seeking the right busi-ness advice. Do you know the essential building blocks to a successful sustainable business? Do you know how to target your market? How do you take your concept and turn it into a reality? How will you scale your business up to make it profitable?

These questions will be addressed by Ali at the Farm Business Innovation Show. He will share top tips and explain how business incubator hubs, such as Farm491, can really make a substantial difference to business growth and success. Farm491 is currently helping agritech entrepreneurs to prepare for launch and ensuring their business propositions are robust enough for a sustainable future.

Dr Ali Hadavizadeh, Programme Manager, Farm491, said; “The Farm Business Innovation Show is designed to provide farmers, agricultural entrepreneurs and landowners with inspiration, advice and resources should they wish to innovate, diversify and make more money from land. Based at the Royal Agricultural Univer-sity, Farm491 is an incubator hub that helps businesses to grow. We’re looking forward to networking with people looking to diversify or progress a new business.

“If you’re considering trialing something new on your farm or land, this is the show to be at to gain advice, ideas and contacts! For those looking for top tips on scaling a business, please join my seminar on Wednesday November 8.”
