Well, the StowAg Show has concluded, and what a day! We couldn’t be more thankful to our customers, sponsors, exhibitors and staff. Everything came together perfectly (except maybe the weather). The feedback we have had so far has been overwhelmingly positive and we invite everyone to fill in a short survey and let us know what you think.
At StowAg we are lucky to have a superb team who worked tirelessly behind the scenes preparing for the day, and many of the preparations started many months prior. Our Marketing Team led the way with the planning and co-ordination, bringing together some excellent partners and sponsors and their work ensured the smooth running on the day itself. The Sales and Purchasing teams worked tirelessly to ensure we could bring you some super special event day offers, which our customers certainly seemed to appreciate! Our warehouse and logistics team ensured the site & shop was ready, and we can’t understate what a herculean task that was. Everyone from accounts to operations to engineering and cleaning staff got stuck in, and we think it really showed.
We talk in our marketing material about ‘going the extra mile’, and in this instance our team went far further than that. Our mission is to keep the countryside working, and hope that our love for farming and country life came through.
We would love feedback, so please fill in our survey and let us know how we did.
The Opening Ceremony:
The day was a happy day with smiles all round, but the absolute highlight was the honour of having ‘Sticky’ (Mike Griffin) perform the official opening.
As many of you may know already, our beloved Sticky suffered a stroke not so long ago and was treated with exceptional care at the Specialist Stroke Rehabilitation Inpatient Unit at the Vale Community Hospital.
For this reason, we would like to donate some of the money raised to the Specialist Stroke Rehabilitation Inpatient Unit, money raised will help them continue to provide equipment and invaluable support for people like Sticky.
Having Sticky open the show meant a huge amount to our entire staff, but also our regular customers who have missed him in recent weeks. We would like to pass on a massive thank you to Sticky and we wish him well with his recovery.
The Hogg Show:
We are thrilled to be sponsoring the UKs only performing pig stage show who joined us for the day, with Tom Hogg and the outstanding Hogg Show. An impressive selection of breeds, and spectacular performances from his talented performing pigs, tied together with humour and educational content.
The Hogg Show was a huge success entertaining children and adults alike.
Of course an event like this wouldn't have been such a success without our partners and sponsors who joined us in going the extra mile. With Donnington Brewery creating our very own event-special bottled beer, and Cotswold Salt Beef & Pearson's Cider bringing even more flavour, we had the food and drink sorted.
We have talked about the food and the entertainment, but the reality is that our exhibitors were really the main stars of the show. It was the huge number of exhibitors all in one place which made the show a must-visit event for farmers, contractors and estate owners.
Fortunately we had you covered, and with ample space inside our exhibitor and food/drink marquees for those treacherous moments.
Many have already asked us what we have planned for 2020? Well the 2019 show was in celebration of our 50 years backing British farming, so we really pulled out all the stops.
We can't currently say what plans we have in the pipeline for future events, but why not subscribe to our newsletter to be sure to be kept fully up to date?
