With the dispatch of stand registration documents to the exhibitors, preparations for the world’s largest exhibition for agricultural machinery and equipment, Agritechnica 2011, are now under way.

This global-leading platform for the farm machinery industry will be open to the international public at the Exhibition Grounds in Hanover from November 13-19, 2011. The organizer, DLG (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft – German Agricultural Society), is providing two Preview Days on the 13 and 14 of November. The closing date for stand bookings by exhibitors is February 1, 2011.

Among all the agricultural machinery exhibitions, Agritechnica is the one with the highest share of manufacturers and authorized importers among the exhibitors. This is where all the agricultural machinery companies operating across Europe and globally are represented directly.

Agritechnica offers the most comprehensive and wide-ranging exhibition program for arable farming and plant production. More than 2,300 companies and organizations from all over the world took part in the last show in 2009.

The November date is particularly attractive, representing the ideal time for manufacturers to present their innovations to their partners in distribution and farmers, and for farmers to plan their investments for the coming season.

With 355,000 expert visitors, including 80,000 from abroad, Agritechnica 2009 demonstrated its strong appeal for private contractors, machinery rings and farmers from all over the world.

The agricultural machinery trade worldwide sees Agritechnica as its forum and makes particularly good use of the preview days. Agritechnica is expected be the meeting place for the word’s agricultural sector in 201, too.

Agritechnica 2011 will be held in modern, ground-level halls at the world’s largest exhibition grounds, in Hanover, Germany.
