BAGMA Mini Conference 2017

To mark its centenary, BAGMA will be holding two ‘mini-conferences’ in October and December, as well as a reception at the Agritechnica Show in Hanover in November.

The conferences will be one-day events with the morning featuring presentations from BAGMA and its service providers on matters affecting members’ businesses, while the afternoons will focus on dealer issues such as road traffic law and Brexit and its effect on the agricultural market.

The first mini-conference will take place at Askham Bryan College, near York, on Tuesday 24th October and the second will be held in the BAGMA Four Counties Region at Ledbury Rugby Club, Herefordshire on Wednesday 13th December.
