International participation looking strong for 2015 Agritechnica

Farm Industry News will cover Agritechnica this November in Germany, and it looks as though an international trend has emerged from participating exhibitors.

Agritechnica 2015, which takes place from 10 to 14 November (with preview days on 8 and 9 November) is nine months away and the deadline for booking exhibition stands has now past.

Farm Industry News will be at the show this fall and you can find all of the coverage here.
With over 2800 exhibitors expected, stands are now allocated and a strong international trend has emerged, with more than half of exhibitors hailing from outside Germany. Exhibitor participation from China in particular is strong. So far a record 20 countries have signed up for a national pavilion including India, Ukraine and the US. Full exhibitor numbers will be announced later in the year.

Here is some coverage from the 2013 show:

Taking place at the world’s largest exhibition ground located in Hannover, Germany, this year’s show is aptly titled: ‘People, Technology, Innovation – the Future of Agricultural Technology.’

Agritechnica 2015 will not only focus on the newest technology but also on the management, services and smart farming methods that are becoming so crucial throughout the industry.

Agritechnica is not only the largest agricultural machinery show in the world, but also the most international and comprehensive. It is organised by the DLG – the German Agricultural Society – a non-profit company dedicated to furthering agricultural knowledge across borders.
International appeal
2013 had a record attendance of 450,000 visitors, of which 170,000 were from outside Germany. Nearly 2900 exhibitors from 47 countries attended the 2013 event – and of these 1500 were international.

The proportion of international exhibitors has grown steadily over the last ten years from 33 percent to 52 percent, and this has also been reflected in the number of international visitors.

Switzerland, the Netherlands, Austria, France, Ireland, Denmark and the United Kingdom all made up a high proportion, however attendance also increased from North, Central and South America, as well as Oceana.
