The EN Indy Awards announced Dairy-Tech had been shortlisted for three of its awards after the success of its inaugural event, held in February this year, at Stoneleigh Park.

The Exhibition News Indy Awards recognise the achievements of independent organiser shows, teams and individuals.

Shortlisted for Best Trade Show, Best Launch Show and Best Organiser Team of the Year the brand new event concept behind Dairy-Tech has proven its worth with a show focusing on innovation, science and technology in the industry.

RABDF managing director Matthew Knight says it is fantastic that both the event and the team behind it have been recognised through these award nominations and subsequent shortlisting’s.

“Dairy-Tech was the result of many ideas, lots of research, industry meetings and a lot of belief after a huge amount of change and a new direction for the RABDF in early 2017.

“The event model deserves every bit of recognition it’s receiving; we are incredibly proud of what the show achieved in its first year and are excited for next year’s event.  With over 230 exhibitors already booked and lots of new concepts it’s shaping up to be an unmissable day for the dairy industry.”

The awards evening takes place on Friday 2 November in London where all winners will be announced.   Dairy-Tech 2019 will take place on Wednesday 6 February at Stoneleigh Park, further information can be found at
