The Latest News on COVID
Agricultural professionals and farmers will have to wait two more years before they can meet face to face in Brussels, Belgium for another edition of AGRIBEX. With the coronavirus cases rising in numbers, FEDERATION FEDAGRIM could not in good faith host the 2021 edition without making large cuts and hurting the event. The decision was made a little over a month before the official start date. Organisers are firm on skipping directly to their next slot in 2023, but so far no dates have been confirmed. What we do know is that there’s a health and safety plan in place that’s in compliance with the government’s standards. This includes all COVID-19 preventive measures ranging from masking to admission only with a Covid Safe Ticket.

AGRIBEX traces its beginnings to 1958, when it debuted in Brussels, Belgium. The trade show is half professional event meant for agricultural professionals and half fair aimed at the general public – something that stays true to this day. It’s what brings in so many visitors to the show. Held for five days in December every other year, AGRIBEX puts together an exciting programme with lots of activities at Brussels Expo. Contractors and farmers can discover every possible machine, tool or equipment to complete any task on the farm. You’ll find the best in repair, processing of meat & milk products, crawlers and wheeled tractors, fertilizers, tractors and combines, trailers & semi-trailers, tractors, electrical equipment, chemicals and agricultural machinery.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
TÜV NORD INTEGRA, TWIN TRAILER, UNIFARM BVBA, UNIL LUBRICANTS NV and URBAN GMBH & CO are some of the brand names that frequent the trade show over the years. The professional audience is mostly contractors, representatives of the supply industry and farmers (both animal and land). The Brussels Livestock Show is certainly the main meeting place for the biggest names in livestock farming – cattle, sheep, goats, horses. AGRIBEX is also a magnet for various researchers and government representatives. Although mostly visited by Belgians, there’s a good percentage of international visitors and exhibitors coming from Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, France and Switzerland. But as a whole, the trade show welcomes the community and there’s a lot of fun to be had by everyone.
