New dates for AGRITECHNICA ASIA and Horti ASIA announced

agritechnica asia horti asiaDLG International and VNU Asia Pacific have announced the postponement of AGRITECHNICA ASIA and Horti ASIA, which were scheduled to take place at BITEC, Bangkok, in October 2020

The new dates for the exhibitions are from 27-29 May 2021.

The uncertain travel entry regulations for Thailand have led organisers to the conclusion that it will not be possible to organise AGRITECHNICA ASIA and Horti ASIA in a form that is appropriate for such leading international trade fairs for exhibitors and visitors this year. 

This decision to postpone AGRITECHNICA ASIA and Horti ASIA has been taken in close coordination with the partners, exhibitors and visitors of both trade fairs. 

“In view of the continuing uncertainty surrounding the overall international travel situation and uncertain entry regulations for Thailand in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, however, we cannot foresee that it will be possible to conduct AGRITECHNICA ASIA and Horti ASIA in the usual form that is appropriate for exhibitors and visitors. The international nature of both exhibitions is precisely what makes the events an important international meeting point for experts and decision-makers,” stated Bernd Koch, managing director of DLG International.

“We are convinced that postponing AGRITECHNICA ASIA and Horti ASIA until May 2021 will enhance the reputation of both events, as leading international trade fairs for the Asian markets and will further ensure optimal planning and preparation for exhibitors and visitors alike,” according to Heiko M Stutzinger, managing director of VNU Asia Pacific.

“The decision was taken after extensive consultation with our key stakeholders with the end result being that the large majority preferred to postpone the exhibitions to May 2021,” Stutzinger added.
