EIMA Agrimach, which opened yesterday in Bangalore and will end tomorrow afternoon, was also an opportunity to present the next edition of EIMA International, the International Exhibition of Agricultural Machinery, organised by FederUnacoma, which will be held in Bologna from 9 to 13 November. During a meeting with Indian journalists, FederUnacoma President Alessandro Malavolti illustrated the features of the Italian exhibition, which is one of the world's largest events for players in the sector. To date, more than 1,500 industries have formalised their participation in the show - said Malavolti - booking an exhibition area of more than 120 thousand net square metres inside the pavilions. Furthermore, large open-air sectors of the exhibition centre are already set to host show-events, such as the exhibition of Tractor of the Year finalist tractors and the "E-motion" demonstration tests of gardening and landscaping machines in addition to the traditional live demonstrations of mechanical equipment for bioenergy chains. The aim of the Bologna show - explained the president Malavolti - is to cover all possible product categories, through a rigorous division into 14 specialised sectors and five theme shows dedicated respectively to components ("Components"), gardening ("Green"), bioenergy ("Energy"), irrigation systems ("Idrotech") and advanced electronic devices ("Digital"). Overall - said Malavolti - it is estimated that no less than 50 thousand models of machinery, equipment and components will be on display in Bologna to meet the needs of every type of crop and every model of farm. The Indian exhibition, EIMA Agrimach, and the Italian one, EIMA International - added Alessandro Malavolti - are the pivot of cooperation between Italy and India in the field of agricultural machinery: important Indian agricultural machinery brands - such as Sonalika, Escort, Shaktiman, Captain e Redlands Ashlyn - will be exhibiting their ranges in Bologna, and an official Indian delegation, organised as part of the business-to-business activities promoted by the ICE Agency, will be at the show, taking part in the busy agenda of business meetings with manufacturers. For foreign businesspeople, the EIMA International organisation includes informational tours and targeted visits within the exhibition, interpreting services and contractual assistance, as well as logistical support for the reception and stay in the splendid city of Bologna.
