Fieldays 2018 at Mystery Creek
If you have never visited Fieldays at Mystery Creek in New Zealand before, do yourself a favor and mark it down in your calendar for next year.
Being the largest show of its kind on the southern hemisphere it attracted over 130,000 visitors this year, with over 1000 exhibits and attendees spending over 430 million dollars while at the show.
Auger Torque was represented as every year by our distributors Earthworm, who are part of the Advancequip group and as such had a fantastic display of our products alongside Advancquip’s other main line of product, Case Construction machinery.
Over the course of the 4 show days a phenomenal amount of end users, NZ dealers and international visitors made their way to our display, keeping the NZ sales team, along with some support from the guys at Auger Torque Australia quite busy helping current and future owners of our attachments with their upcoming projects.
“This show never ceases to amaze me with people turning up regardless of the weather rain, hail or freezing cold. Gumboots were the footwear of choice to get around the soggy streets of Mystery Creek but that didn’t deter anyone. With a huge amount of enquiries and sealing a quite few deals at the show and a heap more after. We look forward to supporting Earthworm again next year”, explained Nathan Parziani (Global Product Specialist at Auger Torque Australia)
Plenty of deals were made right there at the show as Earthworm had a bunch of show specials and packages for punters to take advantage of and with plenty of product ready to go from all 3 warehouses throughout New Zealand the majority were drilling and trenching happily the week after the expo.
“Mystery Creek Fieldays is a great opportunity to connect with our NZ dealer Earthworm. The benefit for Auger Torque is seeing how well our brand is valued in the NZ market with massive interest from attendees”, said Chris Proctor (Sales Manager at Auger Torque Australia)
Fieldays itself is an awesome place to visit with so many great exhibits from machine, car, tool and bike manufacturers, animal displays and even tractor pulls in the muddy fields adjacent to the show area. Like we said earlier, if you are interested in this sort of thing, make sure you visit next year and if you still need more convincing check out our highlights video below.
Thanks to everyone who came and said hello at the show, we will be back again next year and hope to see you all again then!
