Six hundred exhibitors to take part in Nitra Agrokomplex Fair

The organisers of the Agrokomplex 2007 International Agriculture and Food Fair in Nitra said on August 7 that they expect more than 600 exhibitors to take part in this year's event, which will run between August 16-20.

The exhibiting area will cover 24,000 square metres this year, and the whole area has already been reserved.

"We don't have a single square metre free any more. The whole area is occupied," Agrokomplex-Vystavnictvo (Exhibition) general director Ladislav Svihel told journalists in Bratislava.

Slovak firms will be joined at the fair by companies from Belarus, France, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Japan, Canada, Hungary, Germany, Poland, Austria, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Italy and Ukraine.

The Slovak Agriculture Ministry will have its own stand, where it will promote traditional Slovak wines, milk, cereals, fruit and vegetables along with health foods.

Based on a survey taken among the exhibitors, the organisers decided to shorten the fair by one day this year.

"We don't expect fewer visitors. We expect the same number of people to come within the shorter period as did last year," fair manager Ivan Tomka said.
