Impressive support for Agromek-livestock

30-06-2009 | |

Agromek Exhibition in Denmark has changed its formula and is now different from year to year. In November, the focus will be on livestock and this exhibition première has already attracted 430 exhibitors.

Cattle farmers, pig producers and other livestock farmers will have ample opportunity to gain inspiration and new ideas when Agromek-livestock is presented for the first time during the period 24th to 28th November in the MCH Exhibition Centre in Herning, Denmark.

Agromek’s Chairman and general manager Peter Hansen, said: “We have attained impressive support from the exhibitors and I am pleased that no less than 430 exhibitors are eager to present their products at Agromek-livestock. This ensures the right basis for a good exhibition.”

The new title – Agromek-livestock – signifies that Agromek will now be different from year to year. In uneven years the exhibition will focus on livestock and technologies, installations and production aids for this sector. In the alternating years arable farming is in focus.

Grain sector
Agromek-livestock will also present machines and equipment for grain handling, numerous other products and a livestock show for elite breeding cattle.

Exhibition Manager, Jan T. Pedersen says: “Agromek-livestock will be an impressive, all-round exhibition for cattle farmers and pig producers. As anticipated, due to the new division, this exhibition will be slightly smaller than Agromek in November last year.”

“The exhibition stands will fill ten halls in the MCH Exhibition Centre, Herning. It is worth noting that, despite the continued financial crisis, only a few companies have decided not to exhibit this year.”

International contacts
A high foreign attendance is traditional at Agromek exhibitions. Many foreign visitors receive direct invitations from Agromek in accordance with requests from the exhibitors.

“To date, our exhibitors have provided us with the names of 1,060 foreign contacts who they wish to invite to Agromek-livestock.

“This figure is almost the same as we received for the Agromek Exhibition in November 2008 – despite the fact that there are fewer exhibitors. This underlines the fact that our exhibitors are actively engaged in securing international contacts,” Pedersen said.
