The sixth edition of Agrilevante, the exhibition of international technology and machinery for Mediterranean agriculture, held in the Bari fairgrounds from 10 to 13 October, warms up its engines with record-breaking numbers. The event is organized by the Italian federation of manufacturers FederUnacoma (Confindustria) together with the Fiera del Levante and with the support of the Department of Agriculture of the Puglia Region. Over 80 thousand visitors are expected from the Italian regions, southern Europe, the Balkans, the Middle East, and northern and sub-Saharan Africa.
There will be over 350 exhibiting industries, divided into production chains, Grains, Energy/No Food Crops, Olives/Olive Oil, Fruit and Vegetable, Vineyards/Wine and Livestock. The representation of foreign business operators is also substantial, organized by FederUnacoma in collaboration with the ICE Agency and coming from 50 countries. Following the model that was implemented successfully at the EIMA of Bologna, the four day event will host a rich schedule of business-to-business meetings with companies that produce the specific technologies that foreign operators have an interest in handling for their markets.
The 2019 edition of Agrilevante takes its place at the starting line with several innovations, starting from the livestock section, an exhibition space entirely dedicated to the breeding production chain.
Designed as an important point of reference for all those Mediterranean countries where farming is an important component of the agricultural economy and which need to improve the quality of production and care for animal welfare according to increasingly high standards, the exhibition reviews haymaking, animal feed and barn machinery. It also puts on show about 500 heads of livestock - cattle, horses, sheep and goats - of select breeds.
The event logo is also new: “Agrilevante by Eima”. This wording underlines the common mould of this exhibition and the great exhibition held at the Bologna exhibition complex every two years, alternating with Bari. The two events are organized directly by FederUnacoma, centred on the most innovative technologies for agriculture, conceived according to the same formula structured around a strict product division and a system of services designed for professionals of this industry and for foreign operators.
The topical conferences are also highlighted, with many events scheduled during the four days of the event, including meetings, conferences and seminars on political, economic, agronomic and engineering issues, all referring to the productive realities of the geographical areas to which the exhibition of Bari is addressed specifically.
