Agrosalon Fair opens in Nitra

The first international Agrosalon agricultural-machinery fair, which takes place in Nitra between October 23-26, is mainly designed for professionals in the field, it was reported on October 23. As many as 64 exhibitors are showcasing their products on an area covering 12,054 square metres.

Manufacturers and agricultural-machinery dealers decided to organise their own fair because the well-known Agrokomplex agriculture and food fair, which takes place in Nitra in August, is more orientated towards the general public. Many potential exhibitors have declined to take part in the Agrokomplex fair in past years for this reason.

According to Slovak Agriculture and Food Chamber chairman Ivan Oravec, it is assumed that leading companies will take part in both fairs. The Agrosalon fair is due to take place every two years.

Apart from Agrosalon, two other fairs opened their doors in Nitra on Tuesday - the second Drevo international fair for materials and technology in the wood-processing and furniture industry, and the 10th Les international forestry fair. These two events, which include professional conferences and seminars, will feature a total of 160 exhibitors. TASR
