NAMPO 2024

Grain SA’s 56th NAMPO Harvest Day, which was presented from 14-17 May 2024 on NAMPO Park just outside Bothaville, is considered a great success by all accounts. A record number of 86,474 visitors over the four days – as well as 865 exhibitors – confirms the trade fair’s popularity among farmers, exhibitors, opinion makers and everyone in society who has a heart for agriculture.
A new record attendance on a single day in a normal year was recorded this year on Wednesday, 15 May, with 25,505 visitors. Thursday’s attendance was a short head behind the previous day with 24,021 visitors, while the Tuesday and Friday each received good traction. NAMPO Park’s airfield hosted 290 fixed-wing aircraft and 82 helicopters during the show days. “A noticeable calm prevailed at NAMPO Park throughout the week, and everything flowed as it should without any serious incidents on the park. We were blessed with a good NAMPO,” said Dr Dirk Strydom from Grain SA and main organiser of NAMPO. “With lovely sunny weather, it was the warmest NAMPO in years, which certainly also contributed to the good attendance,” he added.
