Leading agricultural business event AgriScot is being brought forward by one week this year.

The event will now take place on November 13.

The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS) and AgriScot have been working in partnership for a number of years.

The change of date will allow RHASS to support other events at the Centre.

AgriScot chairman Robert Neill said: “When RHASS approached us to review the date, allowing them the flexibility to welcome another organisation to utilise the space, the board, after much discussion, felt it was important to support the request and allow Scotland’s longest-standing agricultural society the ability to generate further income to support their work.”

Whilst AgriScot’s core purpose is to deliver an annual agricultural business event, that brings together new products, services, and advice, for all sectors of the industry, it fully supports the value of charitable and community initiatives.

“Each year we support RSABI by offering them complimentary trade stand space at AgriScot and facilities to host their AGM as well as a platform to generate donations," Mr Neill said.

"We work with SAYFC to support their Agricultural and Rural Affairs Committee, providing personal development opportunities. And we have a long-standing partnership with SRUC through our Business Skills competition, supporting mentoring and business skills development.

"In addition, we have supported individuals to complete studies and research that will benefit Scottish agriculture.”

Mark Currie from RHASS said: “AgriScot is one of the most important events in the Royal Highland Centre’s annual calendar, and we want to do all we can to ensure the revised date is well communicated and does not impact the event in any way.

“The event is not only vital for agricultural businesses; it allows our industry to connect and network and brings to the fore some of the most important advancements and announcements within Scottish agriculture.

"Our thanks go to the event’s directors for supporting our request and we look forward to welcoming AgriScot back on November 13, 2024.”
