Plan your YP Field Days trip with a new interactive app

Abbie Tiller

All roads will lead to Paskeville in the last week of September, as a crowd of up to 30,000 visitors converge on Australia’s oldest agricultural Field Days.

The three-day event showcases cutting-edge agricultural innovations, machinery and technology, and this year attendees can plan their Field Day experience prior to gates opening, with the launch of a brand new app to help navigate the 640 exhibitors at the huge 30 hectare static site.

The YPFD app is like a social network for all things on offer at the biennial event, including an interactive map allowing users to pin sites and locations.

A full list of exhibitors features on the app, and you can even connect with businesses – it’s like a social network built exclusively for YPFD.

For exhibitors, the well-structured app provides a great value-adding opportunity, before, during and after the event. They can schedule in personalised demonstrations, reach out to potential customers and market their Field Days promotions in one place.

Also adding to the interactive experience, there are competitions on the app, with prizes awarded for best Field Days photo, and a Passport Contest with prizes from 20 exclusive Platinum exhibitors.

For businesses fortunate enough to book a site before they all sold out, there’s still time to register to get all the benefits and features of the app, and for attendees, all you need to do is book your tickets online, download the Whova  app in the email provided, and start planning your time at the Field Days.

While the multi-million dollar showcase of innovation and agriculture is always a big couple of days out for farmers, the event also includes fashion parades, working sheep dogs, guest speaker presentations, crafts, clothing, produce and education sites. Old or young, farmer or townie, there is definitely something for everyone.

YPFD committee member, Tracey Browning, said a strong focus of this year’s event was on innovation and technology, with a draw card being scheduled drone demonstration by Xtreme Drones, featuring the latest crop spraying and mapping technology.
