What is Dairy Industries Expo? 

Taking place in October 2023, Harrogate, Dairy Industries Expo will play host to the entire dairy processing & manufacturing industry and will provide a powerful platform for meeting new customers and strengthening relationships with current clients. It’s an event dedicated to dairy processing (not agriculture), so if milk is your business, it’s the place to be! 

What is your admissions policy? 

Dairy Industries Expo is only open to adults (16+) who have pre-registered and hold a valid entry badge or those who register onsite. This includes visitors, speakers, exhibitors, VIPs, and press. Admission is open to professionals who are involved in, or have a direct connection or interest in, the event or associated industries or organisations. All visitors must be 16 or over (unless prior written consent from the organisers).
