Diversification is essential for all sizes and types of business. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the agricultural and rural sectors where unexpected developments such as flooding and other extreme weather patterns, poor crop yields, market changes and livestock diseases can have devastating effects on the incomes of those businesses involved.

Launching alongside the established Energy Now Expo Ireland, as part of the Energy & Rural Business Show, the Rural Business Expo Ireland will provide ideas and guidance on ways to diversify, maximising the value of resources available to the agricultural and rural communities, increasing incomes and safeguarding these essential businesses for the years ahead. Diversification ideas include: Food, Drink, Holiday Accommodation including Camping, Glamping and B&Bs, Weddings, Family Attractions, Retail, Equestrian, Events, Experiences, Alternative Land or Building Use and Alternative Farming.
