One of the leading agricultural machinery exhibitions Agritechnica has been postponed until March 2022.
The German Agricultural Society (DLG) said the event was being pushed back due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and the progress of vaccination programmes, both in Germany and abroad.
Organisers concluded that there was insufficient certainty to plan the event for November 2021.
It will now take place from 27 February to 5 March 2022.
“As a world-leading trade fair, Agritechnica is the meeting point for the entire agricultural machinery industry, as well as a leading international business platform,” said DLG CEO Dr Reinhard Grandke.
“The essential requirements for exhibitors, visitors and business partners to be able to gather again at Agritechnica are vaccine and test strategies that have been put into practice in Germany, Europe and worldwide.
“Our top priority is to offer exhibitors and visitors certainty in planning but this is not currently the case.
Dr Grandke said by late summer, which is the deadline for exhibitors to register for Agritechnica 2022, there will be greater clarity for exhibitors and visitors.
