With a record 1,500 exhibitors and more than 116,000 visitors, EuroTier
set new standards in 2006, reflecting the positive mood amongst animal
husbandry farmers, and highlighting international trends in product and
service innovations for the animal husbandry sector.
In 2008, EuroTier will be the only international exhibition in Europe for
the animal husbandry sector offering a complete package covering production of
cattle, pigs and poultry and aquaculture. Large farming businesses planning
substantial investments, high-volume buyers, R&D professionals and
veterinarians form a major part of the visitor base.
Veterinary Surgeons' Conference with a joint â€œInternational
Animal Health Eventâ€
For the first time, the bpt (the German association of veterinary
practitioners) will hold its annual conference as well as its professional
veterinary exhibition at the same time as EuroTier and will be hosting these
events within the Hanover Exhibition Grounds.
Both events will be attended by veterinary surgeons specialising in
cattle, pigs and poultry. The annual meeting consists of a broad range of
seminars and presentations and will now also include the opportunity for vets to
explore the latest developments in the various sectors at EuroTier.
Veterinary surgeons from outside Germany visiting EuroTier will have
free access to the veterinary medicine exhibition, which is part of the
Veterinary Surgeons' Conference.
The DLG and the bpt plan an â€œInternational Animal Health Eventâ€ on 13
November, 2008. This will be a meeting point for veterinary surgeons from all
over the world.
New layout for bigger, better EuroTier
The forecast for
EuroTier 2008 is still further expansion in dairy and beef cattle, pig
production and the egg and broiler sectors. EuroTier-organiser DLG is
reorganising the event's layout within the Hanover Exhibition Grounds into new
halls south of the traditional ones. The objective is to offer visitors quicker
and more efficient ways of finding exhibitors and product information.
