Saudi agriculture show to focus on technology
Riyadh, October 1, 2009
Saudi Agriculture 2009, an international water and agri-industry show, will capitalise on business and regulatory conditions to showcase the latest in agricultural and water technology, machinery and equipment, organisers said.
Organised by Riyadh Exhibitions Company, the 28th edition of Saudi Agriculture will run from November 1 to 4 at the newly completed Riyadh International Exhibition Center.
The event will gather producers, agents, distributors, investors and decision makers to explore the future of Saudi Arabia’s fourth largest economic sector.
“Saudi Arabia has been able to transform huge expanses of desert into arable farmland through heavy investments into agricultural and irrigation products and technologies,” said Khalid Daou, project manager of Saudi Agriculture at Riyadh Exhibitions Company.
“This year’s considerable state allocation for the agriculture and water sectors has opened up a greater demand for modern machinery and equipment and advanced technologies that can further optimise agricultural yield while reducing costs. Saudi Agriculture 2009 will feature the products and services needed to sustain the country’s visionary agricultural agenda,” he added.
Since its inauguration in 1981, Saudi Agriculture has served as the entry point for regional and international exhibitors and manufacturers into Saudi Arabia’s lucrative agricultural market.
The 2009 edition will welcome more than 350 exhibitors from over 20 countries to prepare a comprehensive exhibit profile ranging from chemicals and fertilisers, agricultural finance and banking and nurseries and crop protection, to pumps and pipe systems, irrigation and landscaping equipment, and water treatment and management systems.
In addition, as in all trade events organised by Riyadh Exhibitions Company, Saudi Agriculture will feature various related satellite workshops, conferences and networking activities as part of a strategy to monitor new industry patterns and trends. The expanded line of auxiliary events enables Saudi Agriculture to reach out to a wider cross-section of industry players.
To further maximise business and networking opportunities, Saudi Agriculture 2009 will be concurrently held with Saudi Agro-Food 2009 – the 16th international trade show for food products, processing and packaging technologies. – TradeArabia News Service
