Takes place in Bangalore EIMA Agrimach India, the international exhibition of agricultural machinery, equipment and related components, at the Campus of the University of Agricultural Sciences in Bangalore, Karnataka State. Organised every two years by the Indian Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Industry FICCI and the Italian Association of Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers FederUnacoma, this year the fair celebrates its eighth edition, which will open with a solemn inauguration ceremony in which will take part, in addition to the representatives of the two organising bodies, also the major government authorities, both of the Indian and the federated state of Karanataka. The traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony, will therefore mark the beginning of an intense and crowded four-day event, which will present a wide range of agricultural technologies to the wide audience of buyers, farmers and technicians from February 29 to March 3. From open field tractors to irrigation systems, from components to crop protection equipment, to tillage machines, EIMA Agrimach offers solutions that meet the mechanisation needs of the different farming models of a country that covers over 3.2 million km2 and has extremely diverse soil conditions. The wide range of machines on display is also confirmed by the numerous manufacturers, more than 130 Italian and foreign brands, which - the organisers of FICCI and FederUnacoma say - have formalised their participation in the event. Also of great importance is the presence of Italian companies, 15, participating in the Bangalore event with their Indian branches, or through their local distributors. The formula of the event is, once again, the one that has decreed its success over time. Since its first edition, EIMA Agrimach has in fact been characterised by the combination of static exposure and field tests of machinery, much appreciated by operators in the sector for the opportunity to see the mechanical means at work and to test their technical characteristics. But the Bangalore exhibition is also an important forum for discussion, a moment of confrontation between public decision-makers, stakeholders, and insiders, on the salient issues of the agricultural and agro-mechanical sectors.

During the four days of the event – the organisers explain – numerous in-depth meetings are scheduled, ranging from the theme of innovation and sustainability in agriculture to that of primary education needs, up to the role of start-ups for the development of agricultural mechanics.

Technology innovation will also be discussed at an important conference focused on public policies aimed at encouraging the renewal and modernisation of India’s machinery fleet.

Business to business meetings with buyers and foreign delegates are expected to be crowded. In this perspective, the ICE Agency, in collaboration with FederUnacoma, organised a mission of 28 operators and 4 journalists from Bangladesh, India, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. Two days dedicated to business to business meetings, which will be held on February 29 and March 1 in a specially set up area.
