Machinery entries good, despite bad times

THE GENERAL FEELING AMONG THE EXHIBITORS AT THE 2007 NAMPO HARVEST DAY SHOW WAS that business was good. Issue date 15 June 2007

Machinery entries good, despite bad times

Leading manufacturers and distributors all agreed that the importance of Nampo, as a showcase for tractors, implements and all relevant equipment, grows every year.

This year more than 600 exhibitors offered the 64 014 visitors a wide range of products and ­services. Attendance figures were slightly down on last year on the first day but picked up ­considerably on the second and third days to meet the expectations of the organisers, Grain SA. New ­exhibition stands on the southwestern side of Nampo Park were added and feedback from standholders situated at various points in the park confirmed there was a more even distribution of visitors across the whole site than in previous years. Joe Spencer reports.
