Event organiser German Agricultural Society (DLG) said the conditions for hosting the exhibition could no longer be met, as cases are rapidly rising worldwide and related restrictions on travel presented challenges for those who were intent on attending the in-person trade event.

The health and safety of visitors, exhibitors, partners, members and staff is the top priority in this situation, said the press release.

“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," said Reinhard Grandke, Chief Executive Officer, DLG.

"We deeply regret the cancellation," he added. "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 trade fair will take place from 12 to 18 November 2023 in Hanover, Germany.
