Primex 2014 Celebrating 30 Years!


ONE of Australia’s most iconic field day expositions will this year focus on the future for its 30th anniversary.

 

 PRIMEX (Primary Industry Exhibition), held across three days each June at Casino in Northern NSW, has partnered with the Future Farmers Network (FFN) for 2014.

 

“This year is especially significant for us,” said Primex director Bruce Wright.

 

“Being our 30th year we really wanted to present an event that not only celebrated a special historic milestone for us, but also looked ahead at the exciting challenges that face the entire industry.

 

“The central feature of Primex 2014 will be ‘The Future of Farming’ and we have been able to attract a wide variety of exhibitors who will showcase what is on and beyond the horizon for farmers and associated industries.

 

“The Future of Farming will target issues linked to the next generation of farming and farm succession. The presentation will engage leading secondary and tertiary institutions, in addition to youth and industry organizations throughout the country with seminars and workshops involving keynote speakers, networking events and functions.

 

“Running parallel with the Premier Feature will be an Education and Careers in Agriculture Expo.

 

“Our partnership with the FFN dovetails perfectly with our premier feature.

 

“This exciting partnership, the first of its kind in Australia, will provide a broad range of educational and networking opportunities with the aim of delivering current industry information to those already in the industry as well as showcasing to the broader community exciting career prospects.”

 

Primex began, on its current site at Casino, in 1985. At the helm then was Bruce’s father John, who is still a director of the event and remains a driving force.

“Of course I am extremely proud of what Primex has achieved and what it now stands for,” said John Wright.

 

“Back in 1985 we had 40 exhibitors and about 3000 locals came through for a look at this ‘new’ event. This year there will be more than 400 exhibitors, over 1000 brands and about 40,000 people from all over Australia will come through the gates.

 

“The 32hectare site that houses Primex has changed dramatically since 1985. This year we again have made major improvements especially to the parking precinct.”  

 

Primex 2014 will be held at Casino, NSW,  from June 19-21.
