Awards Night

Last year we welcomed more than 700 farmers and industry representatives to a sold out venue, who gathered to celebrate the best in British farming innovation and this year will be no different. Taking place on Thursday, 17 October, the 2019 awards is a night in the agricultural calendar not to be missed.

At this year’s awards evening the winners of the Farmers Guardian Mart’s the Heart Awards will be announced. The awards, which highlight the vital role auctions and auctioneers play within the livestock industry, will be presented with their awards.

Venue

The 2019 British Farming Awards will be held in the Imperial Suite at The National Conference Centre, Birmingham. The NCC has gained an exceptional reputation across the industry, accommodating over 200,000 guests each year. Situated in the heart of the country, you could not ask for an easier venue to reach by air, road or rail, with ever improving transport links and plenty of exciting attractions in the immediate vicinity the National Conference Centre.

The National Conference Centre welcomed its first guests back in 1985 following the successful launch of the National Motorcycle Museum the previous year. Initially expected to be simply an extension of the National Motorcycle Museum’s facilities, the venue soon developed and matured into a successful stand-alone,award-winning venue of its own.
