Due to increased concerns over the continued spread of COVID-19, the organisers of Agritechnica have announced that next year’s event will not take place.

Dr Reinhard Grandke, CEO of DLG events said the decision came 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 is no longer possible.

“Together with the VDMA Agricultural Machinery Association and the trade fair’s exhibitor advisory board, as well as 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 all. We deeply regret the cancellation. Many of our exhibitors, partners, visitors and members, as well as the entire DLG team, have already invested in extensive preparations.

“Our focus is now on preparing Agritechnica 2023 as well as the other national and international DLG events and trade fairs that are scheduled for next year.”

The next Agritechnica event is scheduled to take place in November 2023.
