GERMANY - The show is attracting more attention than before, with 715 companies from 45 countries taking exhibition space.


The strong increase in the number of exhibitors is attributable in particular to the outstanding participation from abroad. With 715 exhibitors from 45 countries, EuroTier 2008 will be more international than ever before.

The foreign contingent accounts for 42 percent. The growth in numbers comes from all over the world. With 166 companies the Netherlands are once again clearly top of the league. The high participation from France with 87 companies (plus 20 percent) is also encouraging. There are twice as many exhibitors from the USA (35) and China (24). Other strong contingents have been noted from Italy (66), Denmark (51), the United Kingdom (47), Spain (40), Belgium (39) and Austria (32).

"This is as a clear sign that companies from these countries aim to use EuroTier as the international turntable for markets throughout Europe, Russia, the Near and Middle East and Eastern Asia. For them EuroTier is the world's meeting place for the branch," says Dr Reinhard Grandke, General Executive Manager of the DLG.

This is where they can encounter business farmers and investors, major customers from the fields of industry, trade and research facilities from all over the world, as well as representatives from the fields of politics, consultancy, associations and federations," adds Dr Grandke.

EuroTier 2008, the world's largest exhibition for professional animal husbandry, will take place in the city of Hanover, Germany on 11-14 November 2008.
