Fieldays Exhibitors were awarded for their creativity and effort at the Fieldays Exhibitors Site Awards proudly sponsored by Xero with milking equipment worldwide leader DeLaval taking out the Supreme Site Award.
Several independent judges considered how the site looked, its originality, signage, interactive elements, staff and customer service and the overall vibe and were impressed with the high calibre of this year’s sites.
New Zealand National Fieldays Society CEO Peter Nation said, “These awards recognise the time, effort, imagination and investment that our valued exhibitors have put into their sites.”
“It’s great to see the magic that companies with big budgets can come up with as well as the creativity from companies with very little budget. It takes weeks for exhibitors to set up their sites which contributes immensely to the Fieldays visitor experience so it’s great to be able to acknowledge their efforts with these awards” said Nation.
The award for Best Agribusiness Outdoor Site went to DeLaval Ltd whose site was professional and well set-out with staff who were friendly and engaging, successfully interacting with members of the public in a respectful way.
PPP Industries Ltd won the Best Agribusiness Indoors Site for being well-branded and for their excellent use of length and height of their site to showcase their products, which included a feed silo.
Nescafe Dolce Gusto impressed with their friendly staff and the great site layout that won them the Best Rural Living Site. The crowds flocking to The Local in Foodcourt 2 lead to them taking out the Best Food Vendor Site with them being praised by Fieldays MC Te Radar as being a “next level sausage sizzle”.
And the best Motor Vehicle Precinct Site award went to Mercedes-Benz Vans for their impressive site showcasing a variety of their fleet. Mercedes-Benz were praised for staying true to what they’re offering customer, showcasing vehicles specific to the agricultural sector with a strong brand story.
The Fieldays Supreme Site Award was decided on by a number of Xero staff members and one of their accounting partners who were tasked to go under cover and check out the finalists to decide on the overall winner.
They decided on DeLaval who’s impressive layout was hard to beat, offering visitors different areas to interact with staff and learn more about the products on offer. A close second and honourable mention went to the team from The Local who were operating with limited budget but a load of passion and a strong sense of reason.
The Fieldays Exhibitor Site Awards are proudly sponsored by Xero with the supreme site winner receiving a prize hamper and a discount of their 2019 site.
