On Friday the 2nd of November, Saint & Co. attended the 12th annual Borderway Agri Expo.
As one of the UK’s largest agricultural events, it was a terrific opportunity for some of the Saint team to meet existing and potential clients already working in the industry, and to offer accountancy advice specifically tailored to the farming community.
The event itself was a lively and vibrant showcase of the best quality sheep and beef cattle, along with the latest in farming practice developments, cutting-edge machinery, equipment, and technology. What’s more, a number of important discussions were led around topics such as the environment, exports, and livestock marketing.
Our Farm Advisor, Will Robinson, had this to say:
“Once again, the Borderway Agri Expo was a truly fantastic event, with many of our current – and some prospective – clients coming to see us at our stand for a chat. Some wanted to discuss Making Tax Digital and Xero, while others were keen to learn more about the Farmplan accounting software. Lucky for us, Farmplan had their stand right next to ours, which worked out well.”
“We had lots of visitors, and our branded merchandise (torches and bottle openers) were very popular. In fact, we ran out in the first hour! We also ran a free prize draw, with one lucky person scooping a £100 gift voucher at the end of the event.”
“All in all, it was a great day – we met a number of passionate farming professionals and provided plenty of expert guidance. I’m sure next year’s Expo will be even bigger, and even better. I’ve already circled it in my diary.”
