Situated in the science, technology and innovation area of the show the ‘Innovation Hub’ is set to feature the very latest products, equipment and knowledge in the industry.

Visitors will have the chance to hear about the very newest products on the market through the Royal Innovation Award; finalists of the competition will be profiling their products through the ‘Innovation Hub’ in the form of short presentations. Once pitched the board of judges will select their winner who will be announced on the day.

The hub will be an interactive area where there will be the opportunity to road test groundbreaking technology and speak to all companies featuring products in the Royal Innovation Award.

If you’re looking for fresh ideas, to find out more about innovation, agri-tech, smart farming solutions, revoutionary labelling systems, how 24/7 mini dairies are coming to market in Holland, the future look of forage, robotics, virtual reality and much more then a visit to the Innovation Hub is a must.

Seminars and workshops at Dairy-Tech are eligible for Dairy Pro points and registered Dairy Pro members can collect points which will be recorded against their personal and business profiles, giving recognition to their professionalism in dairying.
