Nitra agriculture fair draws 630 companies

MORE THAN 600 companies are set to take part in this year's Agrokomplex International Agricultural and Food Fair in Nitra.

The 630 companies from 16 countries have enrolled so far, but there are still more companies on the list of exhbitiors, Ladislav Švihel, director general of the organizing group, Agrokomplex-Výstavníctvo, told the SITA newswire.

The exhibition lasts five days - making it one day shorter this year than it has been in the past - and covers an area of more than 30,000 square metres. The best products on display will compete for the Golden Sickle and Champion of the Exhibition awards.

The Agrokomplex will also include the International Cooperative Exhibition of Consumer Goods and Food, a horse breeders' exhibition called Horses and People, and an exhibition called Regions of Slovakia, aimed at developing agritourism.

Agrokomplex 2007 begins August 16 and closes on August 20.
