2/5/2018 4:31:26 PM


Premieres, technological innovations, fruitful business meetings, new contacts – that is how we can briefly summarize the seventh edition of the POLAGRA-PREMIERY International Agricultural Fair, which took place on 18-21 January in the fairgrounds of Międzynarodowe Targi Poznańskie.

POLAGRA-PREMIERY once again was the place of business meetings, a source of new offers and a platform for communication and exchange of experience. Business customers gained knowledge on the latest machinery, equipment and services for agriculture. Also individual customers were satisfied, who found a lot of inspiration at the POLAGRA-PREMIERY Fair and met specialists from the agricultural sector, who shared their knowledge with them. The January date of the event is the perfect time to suggest farmers the ideas of new investments. This aspect has been especially appreciated by the exhibitors, who unanimously emphasized that the organization of the Fair just after the Agritechnica Fair in Hanover is the best possible idea. In the opinion of the exhibitors, the two-year cycle of the Fair also allows to show farmers truly new products. Such a formula was also appreciated by the Fair visitors, who confirmed that Poznań is an important landmark on the map of agricultural events in our country. This year's event edition was also visited by foreign traders and a carefully selected group of farmers from across Poland. As a result, to the satisfaction of exhibitors, many commercial agreements were signed.

Outstanding personalities

The POLAGRA-PREMIERY Fair has been enjoying well-deserved reputation for years. Its rank is noticed by important personalities in the agricultural industry, who visited the event, taking part in the official opening of the Fair combined with the MTP Gold Medal and Acanthus Aureus awards ceremony. The distinguished guests included Jacek Bogucki, Secretary of State in the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, as well as MPs, senators, representatives of the diplomatic and consular corps, regional administration, industry chambers and trade associations.

Polish companies and foreign brands

In 2018, POLAGRA-PREMIERY occupied the surface area of approx. 50,000 sqm. The event was attended by industry leaders, Polish and foreign manufacturers, as well as new suppliers. Polish companies presented themselves in a very attractive way, highlighting quite significantly their presence at the POLAGRA-PREMIERY Fair. Such manufacturers as: SAMASZ, KRUKOWIAK, EXPOM-KROŚNIEWICE, URSUS, BURY-MASZYNY ROLNICZE, BIN, MANDAM, MEPROZET, UNIA, AGRO-TOM, METALTECH or URSUS prepared a varied exhibition for the owners of smaller and larger farms. – Many Polish companies belong to the group of leading manufacturers not only in Poland, but in entire Europe. The companies are perceived as reliable firms with an innovative flare. Polish producers are having increasingly better design and production facilities, allowing them to design, execute, implement and service agricultural machines and equipment. Therefore, their position in the international arena is growing constantly – explains Jakub Patelka, Project Director. Among the exhibitors, there will be well-known brands such as: ZETOR, FENDT, MASSEY FERGUSON, MC Cormick, VALTRA, JOHN DEERE, KUBOTA, or CASE IH.

Additional working tools

In recent years, there has been a clear impact of new technologies on agriculture. The visitors had an opportunity to find inspiration and ideas for more effective work in the field in the PRECISION AGRICULTURE ZONE, where specialist software, innovative accessories and solutions designed to offer farm owners slightly different perspective on the management of agricultural acreage were presented. The exchange of knowledge and experience was supported not only by ongoing business talks at the stands, but also debates on the most important problems of the agricultural sector and meetings with the participation of outstanding specialists. The audience were much interested in the Cereal and Corn Producers Forum, a conference on Polish agriculture and its development prospects, and the 12th Rapeseed and Protein Crops Producers Forum. During the Fair, also a workshop entitled "How to increase the efficiency of modern enterprises both in operational and market areas?" was carried out by the 4 Results company.

Something for women

Pleasant surprises were also waiting for the fair sex, to whom the MODERN HOUSEWIFE ZONE was dedicated. Women could visit the exhibition and also spend pleasant time in a special zone In the zone, the participants could find not only aromatic and delicious coffee served by baristas, but also attend workshop entitled "Sweet moments with Goplana", as well as obtain gardening tips offered by the COMPO Polska, Legutko and Vilmorin Gardena companies.

See you again in 2020!

All good things must come to an end. Unfortunately, this also applies to the POLAGRA-PREMIERY Fair. – We are grateful to the exhibitors, visitors, the media, as well as unions and associations for their participation in the POLAGRA-PREMIERY Fair – emphasizes Jakub Patelka. – The organization of the event for such an outstanding group was an honour for us. We hope that their presence at the POLAGRA-PREMIERY Fair will result in good crops in the coming years – he concludes.
