NAAC announces John Deere as new partner for Contractor 2017

The National Association of Agricultural Contractors (NAAC) is delighted to announce John Deere as a new partner for its national conference and exhibition, Contractor 2017, being held at the East of England Showground on Thursday 14th December 2017.

The event, aimed specifically at contractors, will address the important role that this sector plays in the industry and examine how they may need to adapt to the changing needs of the farming industry post-Brexit.

“This is an exciting time for all involved with agriculture,” says NAAC chief executive Duncan Russell. “It’s great to announce that John Deere, a name highly regarded by contractors, will partner this important event for the industry.”

John Deere Limited marketing manager Chris Wiltshire adds: “We are very pleased to be associated with Contractor 2017, a specialist and unique event aimed at an increasingly important sector of the farming industry.”

At the event, John Deere will be showcasing new products aimed at contractors and large farmers to help improve the efficiency and management of modern agricultural machinery.

This is a must-attend day for contractors, featuring high profile speakers at the morning conference and a large exhibition of contractor specific machinery and services, with additional transport focused discussion and debate in the afternoon.

Formed in 1893, the NAAC is the representative organisation for agricultural and amenity contractors in the UK who supply all types of land-based services to farmers, government, local authorities and sports and recreational facilities.
