Checking out the big guns. AGFO Expo organisers, Joey Lascelles and Louis van der Merwe at the recently held Nampo agricultual expo at Bothaville. The biggest of its kind in the country.

Preparations are well on track for the first-ever AGFO Expo scheduled to take place from October 21 to 23. The AGFO Expo is an impressive new initiative focusing on the joint interests and natural symbiosis between the agriculture and forestry industry. It will take place at the Casterbridge Lifestyle Centre in White River. 

The event will provide an all-new platform for stakeholders from both of these dynamic sectors to promote their interests, showcase their products and demonstrate their services and capabilities to a diverse but targeted audience. The compelling line-up of entertainment for the whole family gives this expo a satisfyingly broad appeal. Judging by the growing interest in this event, we are geared for the AGFO Expo to become an annual happening on the Lowveld calendar.

The organiser, Louis van der Merwe, welcomes United Forest Products as the first bronze sponsor. Various other sponsorship opportunities at great value are also available. Interested parties can visit the website at www.agfo.co.za for more details.In preparation of the AGFO Expo, members of the management team visited the Nampo Harvest Day in Bothaville on May 18. 

In true Lowveld community spirit, a pilot and aircraft was made available to the team who thoroughly enjoyed the privilege of flying to the Nampo show grounds. 

Stand sales are progressing well and interested participants are encouraged to book their stands now to avoid disappointment. The AGFO team welcomes United Forest Products, Lefpa, Sunshine Seedlings, Silvichem, Flexi Lube, Ezigro Seedlings, Rainbow Reservoirs, Sabie Brewing Co and Picasso's Mexican Taqueria and Rudamans. Rudamans, which has booked 10 stands, is well known for its support to business in the Lowveld.

Based in Mbombela, Rudamans is a leading supplier of forestry, gardening and agricultural equipment, as well as being the only licensed dealer for LA Sport 4×4, Yamaha Bike & Marine and Husqvarna in the Lowveld. Not only a retailer of quality goods, Rudamans also boasts an extensive workshop, offering repairs and services on any brand or model of equipment as long as spare parts are available in South Africa.
