Due to the ongoing pandemic situation and the current official regulations, the German Agricultural Society (DLG), as organiser, the VDMA Agricultural Machinery Association and AGRITECHNICA’s exhibitor advisory board have decided to move the event till 2023
The next AGRITECHNICA will take place from 12 to 18 November 2023 in Hanover, Germany.
Digital complement still available
The digital complement to AGRITECHNICA, which was launched in November 2021, will continue to be available as planned on the digital platform DLG-Connect (www.dlg-connect.com) until the end of March 2022. Visitors to the platform have the opportunity to learn, free-of-charge, about current offerings and information from agricultural machinery manufacturers as well as take part in digital events and network with companies and farmers.
“With regret, we have observed that, following the deteriorating pandemic situation in recent weeks and the resulting current official regulations, a justified exceptional situation has cropped up, under which the trouble-free execution of AGRITECHNICA is no longer possible. We have made this decision of cancelling the event respecting our responsibilities towards the health and safety of all. Many of our exhibitors, partners, visitors and members, as well as the entire DLG team, have already invested in extensive preparations. Our focus is now on preparing Agritechnica 2023 as well as the other national and international DLG events and trade fairs that are scheduled for next year,” said Dr Reinhard Grandke, CEO of DLG.
“We all deeply regret that Agritechnica 2022 cannot take place after all - on the one hand, because the entire industry was already looking forward to its 'leading trade fair' with great anticipation, and on the other hand, because farmers currently stand to benefit from the numerous agricultural machinery innovation impulses in a way rarely seen before. After all, innovative machines, equipment and software tools make a significant contribution to sustainable and future-proof agricultural machinery production processes,” said Dr Bernd Scherer, managing director, VDMA Agricultural Machinery Association.
Agritechnica Innovation Award winners announced
“The decision to cancel Agritechnica is particularly difficult for us since many companies have specifically targeted the trade fair to present their innovations,” said Freya von Czettritz, Agritechnica project manager.
“Even though Agritechnica cannot take place in Hanover next year as planned, it remains an opportunity to focus on the innovations in the agricultural machinery industry. That is why we have announced the winners of the leading innovation award for international agricultural machinery, as planned. Our thanks go to the DLG Innovation Cica.com/innovation-award-winnerommission, which awarded one gold and 16 silver medals for exceptional innovations. The award winning innovations are published at www.agritechnica.com/innovation-award-winners. DLG will officially present the winners’ awards next year.
