A record number of people attended the Fieldays that wound up this afternoon at Mystery Creek in Hamilton.
Just over 128,000 people went through the exhibitions showcasing new products and technologies for farmers.
Chief executive Jon Calder says some of the exhibitors are reporting huge sales numbers.
"Last year's exhibitor survey shows that we've generated something in the vicinity of $430 million in sales and there's certainly an improved air of confidence across our exhibitor base so I'd be pretty confident we've exceeded that target."
