Large numbers and new organization at Agritechnica 2015

The appointment with the big international Hanover event is back. About 2,800 exhibitors will take part in the German exhibition. Meaningful is the presence of the Italian company (391), which represent the largest component of foreign exhibitors and display themselves to economic operators with an extraordinary breadth of range. There is also a rich programme of meetings, partly held in the new area of Agritechnica Plaza

The big event of Agritechnica, organized by the DLG (German Agricultural Society) and held at the Hannover Fair from November 10 to 14, will host about 2,800 exhibitors from 52 countries. The best production in terms of tractors, machinery, equipment and components of all types is displayed in this international event, which attracts exhibitors and traders from all over the world. Among foreign exhibitors a leading role lies with the Italian businesses representing the largest presence in Hannover with that breadth of range that characterizes the “Made in Italy” of the agricultural engineering. Of the 1,563 businesses from abroad, 391 are Italian, followed by the Netherlands (126), Turkey (109), France (103), China (100), Austria (70), Poland (68), Canada (60), United States (54) and then all the other countries with more or less numerous delegations.

On the organizational level DLG wishes to point out that, due to the addition of the new Hall 20 and the elimination of pavilion 1, were introduced changes in space allocation by optimizing the concept of sectoral group. The main changes are as follows: tractors are displayed throughout the trade fair; the preparation, cultivation and care of the soil have been moved from Hall 9 to 12; technologies for fertilization are placed in Halls 21, 22 and 23; agricultural electronics and providers of “Smart Farming” solutions are located in Hall 15; System & Components occupies Halls 15, 16 and 17, focusing on the main technological trends in terms of efficiency, reliability, safety/ergonomics and environmental impact. At the same time makes its debut at Agritechnica the “Plaza” area in Hall 32, a meeting place for both DLG members and industry experts. Finally, the pavilions 14 and 15 are appointed as only Hall 15 and pavilions 19 and 20 as Hall 20, while suppliers of machines, forestry and municipal equipment display their products mainly in Hall 26 and its adjacent outdoor area.  With this new division in single areas of specialization, Agritechnica aims to offer an overview and a better orientation inside the exhibition center, in order to allow visitors to easily reach their specific areas of interest. In addition, at the exhibition center is operating a free of charge shuttle bus service to allow operators to quickly reach the pavilions.  The programme of meetings is wide and offers conventions, workshops and forums with an international appeal. The latest developments in agricultural mechanization will be published and discussed together with the results of the most recent research during the international press conference “LAND.TECHNIK AgEng 2015” sponsored by VDI Knowledge Forum, on November 6 and 7 at the Convention Center in the trade fair. After the success of its last edition, is relaunched the international series of events called “Ag Machinery International – Access to emerging markets”. In the days of the event are scheduled follow-up meetings focused on the markets for agricultural machinery and equipment of several countries of Africa and Central-Eastern Europe. They will also explore the possibilities of access for businesses of agricultural engineering with regard to financial services. A wide programme of technical conferences animates these five days of the German event with meetings in which representatives from the world of science, consulting, industry and agriculture will present updates on “Plant production”, “Technology and management”, “Major Crops Worldwide”, “Future Farming” and “Campus & Career” in the new area of Agritechnica Plaza.
