“The NBA is delighted to be able to hold its flagship event at the new auction, business and conference centre, and we’re delighted to be face-to-face with key industry organisations, businesses, producers and NBA members after a two-year hiatus,” explains NBA Chief Executive, Neil Shand.

A spokesman for Darlington Farmers Auction Market, added: “The whole team is excited to welcome Beef Expo to Darlington Farmers Auction Mart. The event in 2022 will be made even more special because, due to Covid-19, the brand new facilities did not get the opening ceremony we hoped for. Beef Expo will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase Humbleton Park to the beef industry and we ensure a terrific North East welcome to each and all.”

The event will also host the National Commercial Cattle Show and the South Devon Performance Championships. It will also explore the importance of the livestock marts both for trade and for wider rural communities. Farmers, exhibitors, agricultural organisations and members of the public use the annual event to network, do business and share knowledge.
