"#AgriPerMe", the forum of the on-line agriculture
It is held in Bologna, as part of the International Exhibition of Agricultural Mechanization, the meeting on the relationship between the internet and agriculture. Organized by AgroNotizie and Macgest, the event provides a wide overview of the opportunities offered by the network to enterprises and farmers
The project has been called “AgriPerMe, the barcamp of agriculture” and aims to start off a debate on the combination web+agriculture, in order to provide farmers, technicians, dealers, manufacturers – and other professionals of the sector – with many ideas on the survival and development of a business in the ecosystem of the network. AgroNotizie, in cooperation with the staff of Macgest.com will organize at EIMA International 2014 (November 13, from 9.30 am, at the EIMA Web TV Hall), a preview of the project. Planning a digital strategy, creating interesting contents, getting in touch with potential customers through social networks and search engines: these are only three possible ways that an enterprise can browse to grow up in the Italian and international economic context. “Next summer – highlights the staff of the magazine – we are going to put in common ideas and experiences of those who, through the web, have changed the way we tell stories, talk to communities, listen to market requirements. We will do it through the barcamp formula, a “non-conference” where anyone can apply, in order to share their ideas. EIMA will give the opportunity to plant the seeds of this project. The hashtag #agriPerMe means “Agriculture for me” and is the name of the AgroNotizie community, which is being developed for the purpose of creating a place to share experiences, ideas and innovations for the world of agriculture.
“We have involved in this project – informs the organizer Cristiano Spadoni – some people we admire for the dedication, creativity and willingness to build new pathways for a sustainable agriculture (in fact, for many types of agriculture) that produces, distributes, communicates better, even thanks to the internet. Among them are to mention: Nicola Bonora, architect/surveyor of the information in Mentine; Marco Boscolo, cooperator of Wired, Città del Capo – Radio Metropolitana di Bologna (Bologna City Radio), Le Scienze and la Radio Svizzera Italiana (Swiss-Italian Radio), editor of the webdoc Seedversity (with Elisabetta Tola); Maurizio Sala, internet car retailer from 1998 and from 2009 – with the Unacma partnership – organizer, during the Dealer Day, of the format TAO Agri Dealer Forum; DjRudy and the staff of Tractorum.it; the organizers of #agricolturAMOdomio, the challenge sponsored by Federchimica-Agrofarma (Italy's National Association of the Chemical Industry) and Instagramers Italia”. In addition, during EIMA International, the staff of AgroNotizie will be the official social media team of the event, with their base of operations in Pavillion 36, Stand C1 (Image Line) and a constant presence around the stands and salons with their reporters recognizable by the logo “EIMA Social Team by AgroNotizie”, to take pictures, tweets and status updates!
