Presentations at last year’s Innovation & Diversification Wales event.
Farming Connect has announced speakers from across television and social media sectors for this year's Innovation & Diversification Wales event.
The event takes place at the Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells on Thursday, September 21. Key speakers include farmer and social media influencer Ioan Humphries aka @that_Welsh_farmer, Dilwyn Evans, the Clarkson’s Farm veterinarian and Mandy Watkins, the face of interior design on S4C.
A representative from Welsh Government will also provide information on the latest schemes, funding and support available to the industry.
Held for the first time in 2019, the Innovation & Diversification Wales event took a break due to the pandemic before returning stronger than ever in 2022, when it attracted more than 1,000 visitors, 90 exhibitors and a host of recognisable faces, including social media sensation, Tom Pemberton.
The 2023 event is looking to attract even more farm and forestry businesses which are looking to access the support, information, ideas and new technologies available to help stimulate innovation and diversification within the industry.
Support, guidance, training and practical demonstrations will prepare farming businesses for the future.
Eirwen Williams, Menter a Busnes’ director of rural programmes, has the exciting task of building on the success of previous events.
“We were so thrilled to have such positive feedback from our previous events and we want to make sure that 2023 is even better,” she said. “The event offers those looking to innovate and diversify a chance to speak to those who have already taken the diversification leap whilst also making valuable contacts within the industry to help them on their own diversification journey.”
Billed as an event to inspire, motivate and circulate, with networking and making new contacts cited as two of the key benefits, this year’s event promises to be a day no Welsh farmer will want to miss.
There are a few exhibitor places still available to showcase a product or service, or to promote an organisation at event. To book exhibitor space or to attend the event, register for free at the Farming Connect website www.gov.wales/farmingconnect .
