Green light for Ireland’s largest machinery show

FTMTA Farm Machinery Show taking place in July 2022 

The “hotly-anticipated” FTMTA Farm Machinery Show will return to Punchestown Racecourse, Co. Kildare, for two days on Wednesday, July 13th and Thursday, July 14th.

Organisers of “Ireland’s largest dedicated farm machinery show” have reported a “huge” demand for exhibition space, with most “major” manufacturers already confirmed as exhibitors.

Exhibitor bookings will close on April 29th, 2022. Organisers expect an “unprecedented” volume of exhibitors at their 2022 event.

The last event occurred in February 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

Speaking about the opening of exhibition bookings, Michael Farrelly, executive director of the FTMTA, said:

“Almost immediately after we opened our exhibitor application process, we had a large number of exhibitors confirmed for our July 2022 Farm Machinery show.”

Focused event 

Michael Farrelly, who stepped into the role as executive director of FTMTA last August, said:

“We knew that there was strong demand for a return to shows. The feedback from longstanding exhibitors at previous shows is that manufacturers are looking for a focused, professionally run event.”

“The FTMTA have a proud reputation of running events that have one focus, and that is farm machinery.”

“This, together with the purpose-built exhibition infrastructure available in Punchestown, makes it very attractive to our exhibitors.”

“It allows them to showcase their products in a way that is not possible in other venues,” Farrelly claimed.

Buy machinery parts online

Meanwhile, in other related news, CNH Industrial’s new online eCommerce will “simplify and speed up” the process of purchasing genuine machinery parts.

MyCNHIStore stocks parts from its three agricultural equipment brands – Case IH, STEYR and New Holland Agriculture.

The firm is launching the store, which includes the ability to select and order parts at any time, across European countries.

Its latest venture is an additional option for visiting the dealership when time pressures make this difficult.

According to the company, the new platform will enable customers to find the parts they need exactly when they require them.

Multi-brand and multi-dealer shopping carts allow customers to buy parts for all their equipment regardless of brand/segment.
