Succesful Agromek in Denmark
Agromek 2008 in Herning, Denmark closed on Saturday last with a total
attendance of 64,997.
Attendance at Agromek in 2007 was higher at 67,818. The 2008 figure is not
entirely comparable with the figures for the past years. Formerly, the numbers
of foreign visitors related to the total number of visitors and guests
regardless as to whether they attended Agromek for one, two or three days.
In the past week, Agromek has had a total foreign attendance of 9,688
from 67 countries. The majority of these foreign visitors came from Germany with
a total of 1,797 guests and Sweden had a total of 1,217. Norway had 1,132 and
Finland 515 visitors respectively.
The Chairman of Agromek, Peter Hansen, commented that the
exhibition was good "with an impressive number of enquiries and orders from
Danish and foreign farmers." "This year, we have only been open for five days
and it seems that exhibitors and visitors have accepted that the VIP day on the
Monday has been dropped. In view of this, we can only be pleased that we have
attained an attendance of 64,997."
Hansen also noted that Agromek is being
increasingly used as a venue for meetings and conferences. "Again this year, we
can note that, among other groups, pig producers hold their meetings and
conferences in connection with Agromek – and I feel certain that this is a
tendency that will increase in the future."
The next Agromek Exhibition
will be held during the period 25-29 November 2008.
