A customer Fendt event was recently held at Garthmyl Hall showing an impressive portfolio of the manufacturer product and all things Fendt. The aptly named ‘Fendt Fest’ took place the time of the start of the German Oktoberfest celebrations to be in-keeping with the theme and support of company origin.
RVW Pugh Ltd, local agricultural dealer started plans for the event back in the summer months and wanted to give their Fendt customers an opportunity to attend as well as some customers that they may not have dealt with before. Together Fendt and RVW Pugh worked hard to deliver an event that offered information and knowledge and typical German hospitality. Guests were able to rotate product stations including Combines and Self-propelled foragers, rakes, tedders, tractors and guidance. With the full range of Fendt tractors taking centre stage at the front of the hall it looked an impressive set up. They were then seated in traditional trestle and benches to enjoy a three-course, German inspired meal, German beer served in their very own Fendt stein and entertainment from Bavarian band Brasswurst, audience participation was encouraged!
‘There was a lot of work that went into this event from both parties and we really felt that it was worthwhile, we want to educate the farming community on the great benefits of the Fendt product and stop the price stigma that surrounds it.’, Robert Pugh, Owner of RVW Pugh LTD.
It gave guests an opportunity to speak with RVW PUGH personnel and Fendt specialists about the product but also to speak with other users for a real life testimonial! The feedback from guests has been excellent.
