Brazil brings products with innovation and technology to Agritechnica 2019
The German trade show brings together the largest players in the industry for business prospecting and networking expansion.
Nine companies from Brazil Machinery Solutions (BMS), a machinery and equipment export program, established as the result of a partnership between the Brazilian Association of the Machinery and Equipment Industry (ABIMAQ) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil), have confirmed their attendance in Agritechnica, one of the largest indoor pavilion agribusiness shows in the world. The trade show will take place on November 10-16 in the city of Hannover, Germany.
The Brazilian delegation will be located in Hall 09, booth E06. Agritechnica is an event that annually brings together the largest players in global agribusiness. More than 2,750 exhibitors will have the opportunity to present their innovative products to more than 450,000 visitors from 130 countries.
In the last edition of the show, which took place in 2017, a volume of over $19 million was projected between trades made during the event and prospects for the following 12 months. Brazilian companies received visitors from Europe, Africa, Asia, Northern and Eastern Europe, such as Russia, Germany, United States, South Africa, India, China, France, Portugal, and Angola, among others.
“Agribusiness is one of the main pillars of the Brazilian economy, and it is no wonder that we are one of the largest productive powers in the sector worldwide. Bringing Brazilian companies to the machinery and equipment sector to a show of the magnitude of Agritechnica is a way to consolidate Brazil as more than just a major producer of technologies and innovation for agriculture and livestock,” concluded Patrícia Gomes, Chief Executive Officer for Foreign Markets at ABIMAQ and manager at BMS.
The Sectoral Chamber of Agricultural Machinery and Inputs alongside the Chamber of Irrigation Equipment comprise one of the largest export fronts for machinery and equipment in Brazil. In 2018, they handled over $870 million in international transactions. Among the main buyers of Brazilian agribusiness manufacturers, we can highlight Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, United States, and Thailand.
