Fair date : 20th - 25th August, 2016



Dear Sir or Madam,


We invite you to reinforce your visibility in the international agricultural and food business and in the profession itself by participating in the AGRA Fair, and that together we increase the visibility and importance of agriculture, food production and the health of both nature and people in this part of the world.


For many years the AGRA Fair has been the largest economic, professional and political event in Slovenia and the wider region. It is economic because over 1.800 exhibitors from 30 countries participate in it. It is professional because all professional institutions are presented, and it is political because the agricultural policy of Slovenia and the EU is presented at the fair.


In the Olympic year of 2016 special attention will be given to the International Year of Pulses (leguminous crops), organic farming, local food supply, forests and wood, and the latest agricultural techniques.


The fair will bring together government rank and professional institutions with providers of cutting-edge technologies, with selected business partners, and with the widest plurality of consumers. They will be brought together by business and professional meetings, live presentations of the latest achievements in breeding, cultivation and production, tasting of award-winning food products, and toasts with the fiest wines.


You are cordially invited to present your achievements at the 54th International Agriculture and Food Fair AGRA 2016!
