Field Days cancelled for 2020
While the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of the Field Days as we know it, at SmartShelters we see it as an opportunity to do something a little different, and perhaps get a sense of what the Field Days could look like in decades to come: i.e. a more virtual experience.
We’ll be setting up our stand on the SmartShelters site, and taking the opportunity to offer VR walkthroughs, product demonstrations, and live chats with attendees in the same way that we normally would at the Field Days!
Where is national Field Days normally held?
Traditionally Field Days is held at the Mystery Creek events centre in Ohaupo, just south of Hamilton. The 2020 event will be the first fully online experience.
What activities does Field Days provide?
Apart from the endless rows of exhibitors, Field Days traditionally offers up plenty of action for its attendees, including:
- Specials and promotions exclusive to Field Days
- Live entertainment and interactive events
- Competitions and giveaways
- Product and innovation demonstrations
- The opportunity to network
- Displays of the latest and greatest industry research
While capturing the feel of the Field Days will be a challenge, we’ll be aiming for our virtual stand to tick as many of those checkboxes as possible!
Field Days exhibitors
Just like hundreds of other exhibitors, at SmartShelters we have spent decades displaying and demonstrating our products at Field Days. It’s a unique opportunity to meet new faces, or ones that we have only ever spoken to over email or phone. We also enjoy being attendees ourselves, wandering the grounds and finding exciting exhibits and demos.
We aim to use our wealth of experience as Field Days exhibitors to create a virtual stand experience that is as close to the real thing as possible.
