Celebrating its 33rd anniversary in 2014, LAMMA has emerged from humble beginnings as a local show with some 50 exhibitors and 2,500 visitors to become the UK’s largest farm machinery, equipment and agricultural services show in the UK. In 2013 the show boasted nearly 800 exhibitors and attracted in excess of 40,000 visitors from the UK and overseas, reinforcing its reputation as the highlight in the agricultural machinery calendar.  On January 21, 2014 BEDNAR made fisrt ever appearance in LAMMA on UK its importer's Knight's stand.

Bad weather?  What is bad weather?

Majority of the stands were in an open air at LAMMA, so both exhibitors and visitors were exposed to unpredictable January's weather during the show.  A short glance of sun on the first day allowed some visitors to walk in just T-shirts, while heavy showers next day made everybody hiding under roofs and the show looked almost empty.  Although UK farmers are used to that kind of weather and at 7:30 (show starts unusually early) stands were fairly populated by visitors.

Many positive inquiries for Bednar cultivators

"Really good show for us" says Jason Weston, Knight's Area Sales Manager.  "Bednar machines received a lot of interest from equipment dealers and farmers."  Jason's colleague Mike Huntington adds: "All are impressed how strongly built machines are.  Seems like busy demonstration time is coming."

 

 
 SwifterDisc XE 10000 dominating the whole stand.  "Recently lots of high horsepower tractors were sold in UK and we expect high interest in wide machinery", says David Main, Knight's Sales Manager.
