Devon County Show

The ASAO was delighted to invite Members and representatives of their Shows to attend the Centenary Conference,  held in Harrogate, where Show delegates from across the UK came together to share best practice and exciting developments in the Show world.

During the two days of the conference, we looked at many aspects of our organisations from animal welfare to working with the media, and of course celebrated 100 years of ASAO!
A huge thank you to all of our sponsors, as well as our delegates and traders.
