18 January 2024, Bologna: The 46th edition of EIMA International, the exhibition dedicated to machinery, equipment, and components for agriculture and greenery will take place at the Bologna Fair from 6 to 10 November. FederUnacoma, the federation of Italian manufacturers that organizes the event, is registering a very high interest and number of members and is expecting a record edition.
In the international streaming press conference, which was broadcast this afternoon from the Bologna Fair, the General Director of FederUnacoma Simona Rapastella provided the first data on participation, anticipating the initiatives and events that will characterize the next EIMA.
He said, “Currently there are 1,330 construction industries that have formalized the request, with a request for the surface area that already covers a large part of the Bolognese exhibition center and it is likely that in a short time, one of the highest exhibitor presences will be achieved in the history of the exhibition, covering every type of product, to offer highly technological solutions to visitors which in the last edition (2022) almost reached 330 thousand.”
The rigorous division into 14 product sectors is confirmed, five of which are organized in the form of thematic exhibitions, dedicated respectively to Components (EIMA Componenti), gardening (EIMA Green), bioenergy (EIMA Energy), irrigation (EIMA Idrotech ) and robotic and digital technologies (EIMA Digital).
EIMA show will also be staged with the Exhibition of Award-winning Technical Innovations, and with the dynamic areas located outdoors, always within the perimeter of the exhibition centre. From this edition, there will be the REAL area (Robotics and electronics for agriculture live) which will see the most advanced robotic technologies with a calendar of daily tests, while the arena for the parade of the tractor finalists of the Tractor of the Year, the demonstration area of bioenergy supply chains created in collaboration with ITABIA, and the Garden E-Motion area, dedicated to machines for gardening and greenery care, are confirmed.
Among the events organized by FederUnacoma, the Forum will have a conference on “Sustainable agriculture, a global project”, in a report on European experiences on the subject of ecological transition and eco-compatible development programs in the main regions of the world will be released. A conference on the theme “Marginal areas and extreme territories: ‘frontier’ agriculture” and a seminar on “Management of digital systems, big data, and robotic fleets: new professional profiles and new training paths” is planned.
Other important events promoted by the Federation are the workshop on “The bio-energy resource: market and prospects of biomass and renewable sources in the fuel sector”, a conference on “Emerging economies: agricultural development models for the African continent”, and finally the meeting on the theme “Food consumption: the demand for fresh products, mechanized supply chains”, aimed at interpreting new diets and new consumption styles, with particular reference to fruit and vegetables. Among the novelties of this edition is also the EIMA Social Award contest reserved for the social promotion of the event by exhibitors. “We have repeatedly reiterated how EIMA International is the product of a choral, efficient, passionate system, a trade fair reality with a solid tradition – concluded the General Director of FederUnacoma – but also capable of a powerful push towards the new, a valuable exposure for business activities, but also exciting from a cultural and human point of view.”
