The LAMMA Show is held at The East of England Showground in January each year as a pre-season showcase for manufactures and dealers of all types of agricultural equipment and supplies to show off the latest kit to farmers and estate managers.
The first exhibition was held at the Lincolnshire Showground in one Exhibition Hall with 50 exhibitors. The stands were all in the hall, a with a few exhibitors also showing additional equipment outside the hall. In it's first year the event attracted over 2,500 visiting farmers, contractors and agricultural engineers.
The visitors and exhibitors were impressed sufficiently with the show to encourage the organiser to decide hold it again the next year.
The range of manufactures and distributors has grown over the years from the original Lincolnshire based firms to encompass the local counties and now features manufacturers from all the UK as well as component and consumable suppliers.
In July 2012 Briefing Media Limited took over the LAMMA organising company.
In 2015 there were over 950 stands with a yet another large marque added to cope with demand. LAMMA is the largest British farming show.
The original focus was on machinery made by local manufactures, but over the years the equipment on display has broadened to cover international machinery brands such as Case IH, John Deere & Co., New Holland, The AGCO brands (Massey Ferguson, etc). CLAAS etc. along with specialist harvesting and planting machinery makers like /andcrop sprayer specialist.
