The international EuroTier exhibition is expanding for 2012, attracting more suppliers of machinery and equipment, farm inputs and animal breeding from home and abroad than ever before, according to event organizers DLG (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft).

The event, to be held in Hanover from November 13 through 16, has already booked 1,800 exhibitors from 46 countries, well above the comparable figures for the last event in 2010. EuroTier Project Manager Dr. Karl Schlösser said there could be as many as 2,200 businesses and organizations overall in Hanover this coming November.


All sections of the exhibition will be represented, said Schlösser, including the pig and cattle sectors, as well as the poultry sector with the World Poultry Show. Stand bookings are up in all these areas, as well as in the cross-species sectors of climate control installations, feedstuffs, animal health and veterinary medicine, and other inputs. The level of exhibitor interest shown in bioenergy with the “BioEnergy Decentral” exhibition is also excellent, according to Schlösser.
