The premier event of the 2017 farm machinery year in Ireland will undoubtedly be the FTMTA Farm Machinery Show to be held at Punchestown Racecourse near Naas, Co. Kildare over three days from Thursday, February 9th, to Saturday, February 11th.


The FTMTA Farm Machinery Show is organised on a biennial basis by the Farm Tractor & Machinery Trade Association (FTMTA) which is the representative body for the farm machinery industry in Ireland with a membership  compromising businesses engaged in the manufacture, importation, distribution, retail sale and servicing of farm machinery in Ireland. Both the FTMTA Farm Machinery Show and, the Association's other flagship event, FTMTA Grass & Muck have been developed by FTMTA as high quality, professional, farm machinery events with the guiding principle that they are “organised by the trade for the farmer and contractor”.

The organisers have indicated from a number of months back that interest in exhibiting at the  2017 FTMTA Farm Machinery Show was running at an unprecedentedly high level and their optimism has proved well founded as early interest has translated into what will be the largest such event ever held. The Show will feature an additional fourth pavilion providing nearly a further 2,000 square metres of indoor exhibition space to cater for the additional demand and, despite the increased availability, all stand space has been sold out for some weeks now with a waiting list in operation since early December. In announcing the additional pavilion at the 2017 Show, FTMTA Chief Executive, Gary Ryan stated that FTMTA is pleased to be able to substantially increase the size of the event while remaining true to the Association's ethos of organising high quality events which feature stands from genuinely agricultural focused businesses only. As the machinery industry's representative body this focus is at the essence of the FTMTA and is what has consistently made the FTMTA Farm Machinery Show such an attractive event to both exhibitors and visitors.

The FTMTA Farm Machinery Show 2017 will comprise four exhibition pavilions totalling nearly 14,000 square metres of indoor, heated, exhibition space as well as a substantial  area of outdoor displays. A record number of 165 individual exhibitors will exhibit across over 200 distinct exhibits including shell stand, open stands and outdoor display areas.

As always the FTMTA Farm Machinery Show will feature exhibits of the latest farm mechanisation technology from the major Irish and international manufacturers active in the Irish market, with a considerable number of new exhibitors booked for the 2017 Show. At the FTMTA Farm Machinery Show, the customer has the unique opportunity to meet product experts from the various manufacturers. Unlike some other events, all exhibitors listed as exhibiting at the FTMTA Farm Machinery Show are individual exhibitors with no subletting of stands, duplication of exhibits or second hand machinery permitted.  The Show has maintained its focus through the years as a farm machinery show attended by genuine machinery buyers and that, in turn, attracts high quality exhibitors who wish to showcase their products and services to this audience. The Association advises that they will announce further new dimensions to the 2017 event during January with the aim of delivering even more value for visitors to the Show.

The Show opens to the public at 10am each day and closes at 6pm on Thursday and Friday and at 5pm on Saturday which has proved to be a very popular day with visitors, making Ireland’s premier farm machinery event more accessible to part time farmers and others who may find it difficult to attend on a week day.

The site at Punchestown is well proven as a tremendous venue for this event and is easily accessible from all over the country with excellent parking and on site facilities. The fact that the Show is an indoor and heated environment is also attractive to exhibitors and visitors alike.
