Does everyone get a site?
Unfortunately, no they don’t. We receive on average 1000 exhibitor applications every year. Applications from core agricultural companies are given preference. Exhibitors who aren’t successful in the first instance will be placed on a waiting lists for the area they applied for and will be contacted if a suitable site comes available. The Agfest Organising Committee reserves the right to accept or reject any application and the decision shall be final.
You're successful but not happy with your site?
Our Selections Committee do their best to locate exhibitors as per the requests they receive, but this sometimes is not possible considering the number of exhibitors that need to be located. Our Selection Committee rotate exhibitors to best achieve patron movement around the site. Long-term exhibitors are not guaranteed a site each year. If you have concerns where you have been located, please contact us as soon as possible and we will consider your case. The closer the event gets, the less likely we will be able to make changes.
