COUNTRY: UK
CITY: Edinburgh

The Royal Highland Show has been in the agriculture business since the dawn of modern farming and agricultural technologies at the start of the industrial revolution. The trade show has run since 1784 and has been the source of economic power of Edinburgh, Scotland ever since. By the last estimate, the event has an impact on local economy of 65 million pounds. The Royal Highland Show takes place at the Royal Highland Centre, which sits outside Edinburgh minutes away from Edinburgh Airport. During its two centuries of growth, the show has broadened its portfolio to include agricultural implements and tools, household items, outdoor sporting goods, horticulture and so much more.

  • The Royal Highland Show is a cultural institution for a reason. It brings all the people to its exhibition grounds. Let’s look at the numbers – more than 1000 international exhibitors, close to 190,000 visitors, 900 competitions, 500 birds and 20 different breeds of sheep. All of this in one place; 
  • Aside from the main exhibition area, there’s an incredible program that highlights the best of what rural life has to offer from sheep shearing, showjumping and driving to tug-of-war, falconry and farriery; 
  • It wouldn’t be a royal show without royalty and the Royal Highland Show has been visited by the Queen on three separate occasions.
