Australian National Field Days returns in October after being forced to cancel in 2020 due to COVID health restrictions, and the call is being put out to exhibitors.
The event is on from October 21-23 at the Borenore site that has been home to ANFD since 1966, and there will be educational events, demonstrations and hands-on activities.
ANFD has a new online booking system for potential exhibitors in 2021.
"Working as a not for profit co-operative, ANFD committee and staff strive to provide our exhibitors and visitors with a field day experience second to none," said ANFD chairman Sam Connell.
"The ANFD business structure enables us to re-invest in our biggest assets - our site and our field day."
In the prospectus to potential exhibitors, Mr Connell said: "Field Days, like other businesses, must change to meet the demands of modern society.

"As much more venture capital is coming from the professional urban community, the committee sees the need for this important sector to be accommodated while still retaining a strong focus on agriculture."
Statistics from the 2019 ANFD visitor survey showed that more than eight in 10 visitors did not attend any other field days.
Nearly seven in 10 said they attended to purchase or inquire about purchasing a product or service.
"Our purpose built facility boasts sealed roads, disabled access, well grassed sites, full sanitary facilities, electricity to most sites, onsite security, full catering and bar facilities, all in a pleasant bushland setting," said Mr Connell.
Australian National Field Days will operate under NSW Health guidance with contactless systems for purchasing tickets, scanning QR code on entrance for contract tracing, hand sanitiser stations and social distancing.
"After a challenging year it is exciting to be back and planning the event in a COVID-safe way," said ANFD manager Jayne West.
Established in 1952, it is the oldest annual agricultural exhibition in the country.
