SPONSORS PRESS RELEASE: Anglia Rural Consultants Announces First Sponsorship

Anglia Rural Consultants (ARC) have announced their first sponsorship partnership, which will help farmers and rural businesses become ‘Fit for the Future.’

‘Fit for the Future’, the title of the East of England Farming Conference, will be held on 1st November 2018 at the East of England Showground, Peterborough.

The event, organised by the East of England Agricultural Society and sponsored by ARC, amongst other organisations, will challenge industry business leaders to understand, embrace and adapt to change in the coming years.  Speakers include the NFU Vice Chairman Stuart Roberts and Shadow Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Sue Hayman.

Richard Rampton, the Chairman of ARC said: “This is a great opportunity to support the East of England Farming Conference.  As a group of experienced, independent rural consultants, we are passionate about helping farming and rural firms adapt to change and drive forward business growth.

“From hands-on help to secure grants, through to delivering major projects, we have some of the most skilled rural specialists in the UK.  The conference will provide a powerful platform to deliver our message to those who would benefit from our expertise.”

The East of England Farming Conference will also provide a solid foundation for ARC’s own conference, which will launch shortly.  Scheduled for 6th December and with a line-up of industry specialists, it will address the future challenges farmers face.

Tom Martin, who is Chairman of the East of England Farming Conference welcomed ARC’s support saying: “We’re really delighted to have ARC on board and it’s fantastic that the East of England Farming Conference has been chosen as their first sponsorship partnership.

“It’s a strong link, as the focus of the conference is to ensure farms and rural businesses are ‘Fit for the Future’, and delegates could really benefit from ARC’s wide range of expertise as part of their journey.”
