On Tuesday 14th December, a statement from the DLG, the organisers of Agritechnica said:
Over the past two years and with a great deal of energy and optimism, we have been preparing for the world’s leading trade fair for agricultural machinery in order for us all to put on a very special AGRITECHNICA 2022.
An AGRITECHNICA – with a top-flight exhibition program and innovations from all over the world – with a high-calibre technical program that explores current topics in agriculture and highlights solutions – where people from over 140 countries can finally meet up in person again to gather information, exchange viewpoints and make investments.
Nevertheless and with regret, we have observed that, following the deteriorating pandemic situation in recent weeks and the resulting current official regulations, a justified exceptional situation has arisen, under which the trouble-free execution of AGRITECHNICA 2022 is no longer possible. Jointly with the VDMA Agricultural Machinery Association and the trade fair’s exhibitor advisory board, and following many discussions with both exhibitors and visitors, we have therefore decided to cancel next year’s AGRITECHNICA. We have made this decision respecting our responsibilities towards the health and safety of the visitors, exhibitors, partners and staff.
We are very saddened to have to inform you of this cancellation. We know how much you too have been looking forward to AGRITECHNICA.
The next AGRITECHNICA 2023 will take place from 12 to 18 November 2023 in Hanover in its regular cycle.
The additional digital complement to AGRITECHNICA will continue to be available as planned on the digital platform DLG-Connect (www.dlg-connect.com) until the end of March 2022. Visitors to the platform have the opportunity to learn, free-of-charge, about current offerings and information from agricultural machinery manufacturers as well as take part in digital events and network with companies and farmers.
