‘We are seeing a renewed appetite for the return of the machinery show’

Tickets are now on sale for this year’s FTMTA Machinery event, taking at the Punchestown Event Centre in Co. Kildare on July 13th and 14th.

Organisers expect in the region of 20,000 people to pass through its gates over the course of two days.

According to the body, the 2022 Farm Tractor & Machinery Trade Association (FTMTA) Machinery show is gathering “substantial” momentum, with a “large” line-up of exhibitors booked.

Michael Farrelly, executive director of the association, said:

“The association has made a significant effort to move forward with a new and invigorated presence. We are seeing a renewed appetite for the return of the machinery show, which was last run in 2019.

“We recently rebranded and have been rolling this out across the association’s advertising and promotional materials.”

“Furthermore, we are delighted to have also just launched our new website that better reflects and represents our membership while also facilitating ticket sales to our flagship event, which went live only this week”, Michael explains.

Organisers have confirmed that they have no longer limited the event to farm machinery.

The event, for the first time, will have a large display of plant machinery and grounds care from a number of exhibitors.


Moreover, the FTMTA is the official representative trade body of the Irish farm machinery industry.

The FTMTA Farm Machinery Show has now grown to become what the body describes as “the flagship event of the Irish farm machinery show calendar”.

The FTMTA Farm Machinery Show is underpinned by the ethos that it is organised by the trade for the farmer and contractor, which has driven the success and growth of the Show over the years.

“It is the weight of this representation that attracts so many to our flagship show in Punchestown”, Michael said.

The new website, which the FTMTA has launched, also features a search tool. Visitors can search machinery for sale from FTMTA members across the country.

Admission tickets for the general public have just gone on sale. For the first time, you can now purchase online via the new FTMTA website.
