Day 4 - 1982: The 1st LAMMA Show
In 1982, the Lincolnshire Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers Association started the very first LAMMA Show, which was held at the Lincolnshire Showground.
“The people who started LAMMA were very keen that this idea of ensuring that there is good communication between all of the people involved in agriculture and machinery manufacturing,” says John Sartain former LAMMA Director and exhibitor.
“There were opportunities for us to help to improve people’s skills and knowledge too. The show had a commercial basis, but it was also an opportunity for people to learn a lot.”

LAMMA has enabled businesses to grow and develop from its beginnings as a small show in Lincolnshire. And through much growth and changes of venue, that has stayed the same.
"It was indeed most encouraging to see firms from all over the county supporting this prestigious event. During my enjoyable visit, I was able to speak to most of the exhibitors, many of whom come year after year. It is obvious they come because it is the best way to advertise and an excellent opportunity to do business."
Councillor Zena M. Scoley, Lincolnshire County Council (1989)

In our 'Founders Fireside Chat' series, Robert Willey of Househam Sprayer reflects on how his business benefitted from attending LAMMA from the beginning.
