AGRA Middle East, the region’s largest agribusiness trade event was officially inaugurated by H.E AbdulRahman Mohammed Al Oweis, UAE Minister of Health at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.

The 2013 edition of AGRAme, held from 26 – 28 March at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre has now made its mark as the largest agribusiness event in the Middle East region. With 174 exhibitors from 34 countries and 4 country pavilions, the 2013 edition of the event attracted 12% more visitors as compared to the event last year.

Exhibitor feedback for the event has been excellent with many reporting onsite orders for products and services on offer. The exhibitors this year have shown great satisfaction at the quality of visitors and the enquiries gathered during the event.
AGRAme features five closely linked exhibitions under one roof showcasing the latest advances in agriculture and irrigation; animal husbandry and poultry farming; floriculture and horticulture; fisheries and aquaculture and agricultural machinery.
With more than 40% of the exhibit space for AGRAme 2014 already rebooked by 2013 exhibitors, the event next year is already assured of a sellout.

AGRAme Seminars – Back for 7th year

Running for the 7th year, the AGRAme Seminars featured 10 FREE to attend sessions with topics ranging from changing the paradigm of poultry nutrition worldwide to let’s block salmonella and growing importance of water soluble fertilizers.

Exhibitors at AGRAme 2013 testify to the event’s success:

We are very happy with the show. This is our fourth year participating, and the visitors have been increasing and improving in quality every year. When we first exhibited, no one knew what our agriculture machinery was, but now we have had 10-12 very strong enquiries already, and a lot   more people seem to want our equipment, particularly from Saudi Arabia, Sudan, and the UAE. This is very positive for us as it is expensive for us to come here, so it is important that we do  business. We will certainly return next year, and we may even establish our own office in the region,  as many potential clients require someone on the ground.
