Due to the ongoing unfavourable epidemic situation and government measures that do not allow the holding of a full-feature expo event, and hence the persisting uncertainty about further development, the management of Trade Fairs Brno agreed with partner sectoral associations to cancel the TECHAGRO, SILVA REGINA and BIOMASS 2021 fairs and hold them from 3 to 7 April 2022. ANIMAL TECH, the National Show of Livestock and the National Hunting Exhibition will be postponed to 27-30 June 2021.

Agricultural and forestry technology for sustainable farming and forest stewardship at the largest fair in Central Europe
The TECHAGRO International Fair of Agricultural Technology, along with the SILVA REGINA International Forestry and Hunting Fair and the BIOMASS Trade Fair of Renewable Sources of Energy in Agriculture and Forestry took place at the Brno Exhibition Centre from 8 to 12 April 2018. All these fairs put together were attended by 724 companies from 37 countries on an area of 87,000 square meters – hence, the Brno Exhibition Centre was completely sold out. Over the five days, the Brno Exhibition Centre was visited by more than 110 thousand visitors.
The 4th season of the trade fair for renewable sources of energy in agriculture and forestry has entered its third day. More than fifty companies located in Hall Z and adjacent open areas deal with their business partners and represent their range of products that mainly include machines and equipment for the treatment, processing and production of biomass, but also for the production of pellets and briquettes from biomass, transportation, handling and storage of biofuels or biogas production.
A complex of agricultural and forestry fairs was ceremonially opened in the Rotunda of Hall A. Minister of Agriculture Jiří Milek on this occasion delivered a speech about the importance of the agriculture and forestry sector for the Czech economy and about the role of the Brno trade fairs.
A record-breaking number of 91 exhibits fought this year for the GRAND PRIX Awards of the Techagro, Biomass and Silva Regina fairs. An eighteen-member jury, headed by its chairman Jiří Mašek, the Dean of the Czech University of Agriculture in Prague, eventually selected 17 of them. Prizes and plaques were handed over at the ceremonial evening together with the Minister of Agriculture Jiří Milek, and with Jiří Kuliš, CEO and Chairman of the Board of the company Trade Fairs Brno.
Together with the TECHAGRO and SILVA REGINA trade fairs, the BIOMASS fair was also launched, which specializes in the energy use of renewable resources. Most of its displays are focused on the use of wood mass as well as on of technologies for the utilization of waste from livestock production. The area of firewood processing is also represented. Exhibitors will also present boilers or technologies for the production of pellets; technologies for biogas stations are not missing either.
