The preparation of the Brno TECHAGRO, SILVA REGINA and BIOMASS agricultural and forestry fairs is going on intensively. The 2022 edition will be extended by the presentation of new agricultural technologies; it will also feature a conference focused on sustainable agriculture.

As of mid-January, about 400 companies have signed up for the Brno Agricultural and Forestry Fairs. Also, thanks to the experience gained with organizing trade fairs at the Brno Exhibition Centre in the autumn of 2021, the organizers are convinced that the event will be beneficial for the industry, as personal contact and the opportunity to see a comprehensive sectoral offer can only be had at TECHAGRO, SILVA REGINA and BIOMASS fairs, sometimes called 'farmers’ feast'. "Agricultural and forestry fairs in Brno have always been a professional presentation of innovations, trends and interesting exhibits, and personal contact was a major benefit. Even in these difficult times, it is important that exhibitors and visitors do not forget these values, to take the opportunity to enjoy this holiday and slowly return to life as we know it from pre-covid times. I believe that after the return of the German Agritechnica expo to its traditional autumn date next year, the right start to the new agricultural season in Europe will be this year's Techagro in Brno and the analogous FieraAgricola fairs in March in Verona and FIMA in April in Zaragoza," said Dušan Benža, Director of the Secretariat of the  Association of Agricultural and Forestry Equipment.

The event will occupy most of the Brno Exhibition Centre, including the outdoor areas, although some traditional exhibitors will not participate in 2022. Agricultural machinery will be represented to the fullest extent. New exhibitors are signing up for the TECHAGRO fair on an ongoing basis, because they see it as a good opportunity to present themselves after two years when no similar trade fairs were held in Europe. "Currently, we note the interest of exhibitors, who see the presentation in April as an opportunity to show their exhibits live again after a long time. Foreign exhibitors are also registered to participate in the expo, and incoming missions of buyers from abroad are also in the pipeline," commented Jan Kuběna, Commercial Director of Trade Fairs Brno.

The exhibitors' interest in SILVA REGINA and BIOMASS trade fairs is comparable to the strongest year 2018. The forestry sector is represented in its entire scope. Many companies in the field of biogas production have signed up for the BIOMASS trade fair. Institutions in the field of agriculture, forestry and hunting are also registered.

A significant enrichment of the TECHAGRO will be programmes and exhibitions that respond to trends currently intersecting with all areas of human activity, especially the requirement of environmental friendliness and reducing the carbon footprint. In cooperation with universities, new agricultural practices, the employment of digital technologies, precision agriculture and smart farming will be introduced, as agriculture will also have to meet the requirements to reduce energy intensity or reduce the share of human labour in agricultural production. The organizers are currently working intensively on this expansion, and the enriched concept of the largest Central European agricultural fair will undoubtedly increase the attractiveness for visitors who want to successfully lead their businesses through the upcoming decades.

TECHAGRO will also feature a beekeeping exhibition connected with the sale of supplies for beekeepers and bee products; the exhibition traditionally includes lectures for beekeepers every year. Farm and regional grocery products will also be sold at the stand of the Agrarian Chamber of the Czech Republic. The GRAND PRIX exhibit competition is also being prepared.

A specialised conference will take place on Monday 4 April as part of TECHAGRO's supporting programme. It will focus primarily on sustainable agriculture with an emphasis on production.

The whole complex of events is prepared by the organizers in accordance with the conditions for organizing trade fair events, which proved successful at several events at the end of last year.
