Association of Agricultural Field Days
The Association of Agricultural Field Days of Australasia (AAFDA) is the peak industry association representing the interests of agricultural field days throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Agricultural Field Days are considered business events and at their core, showcase in a trade environment, agribusiness, tractors and machinery, equipment, services, and technologies that support farmers and primary producers throughout regional areas in both countries.
The AAFDA provide a single united voice for the Field Days industry, liaising and acting on behalf of members with the federal government, applicable national and state-based organisations, and agencies on matters common to all sectors of the industry supporting the AAFDA objectives.
The Covid-19 pandemic has been a watershed period, where the AAFDA and its members have built stronger communications and collaborative capabilities, increasing our relevance, presence, and abilities to advocate for these nationally and internationally recognised, regional based events that generate an estimated $1 billion + sales and with the staging of Field Days, they inject tens of millions of dollars into our respective rural/regional economies.
AAFDA seeks to publicise through the rural sector and related associations, sector interest bodies, and exhibitors that members of the AAFDA have adopted and subscribe to a set of standards that are focused on developing business in the rural communities throughout Australia and New Zealand.
