Mexico: Irapuato gearing up for the 20th edition of Expo AgroAlimentaria

Just three more weeks to go till the 20th edition of the Expo AgroAlimentaria Guanajuato in Irapuato, Mexico. For the first time this year, the premier trade show for greenhouse horticulture in Mexico will take place on a completely new exhibition site. According to the organization, the preparations are nearing completion, and the show is more ready than ever to house hundreds of exhibitors and welcome thousands of visitors.

The trade show is the most important event in the field of greenhouse horticulture in Mexico. While the show is organized in the central region of Mexico, it also focuses on development in the entire country. As well as this, the event has proven to contribute to horticulture business development in North America in general, as the event brings together both international and local stakeholders and suppliers.

Mexico is playing a key role in the North American greenhouse industry, as the country is housing thousands of low, medium and high tech greenhouse operations that enable year round production for large scale greenhouse vegetable operations from the U.S. and Canada. Over the last couple of years, these producers have established a sustainable production scheme, feeding millions of North Americans with a continuous supply of high quality greenhouse vegetables during the winter time. As the demand for this year-round supply rises every year, Mexican growers are investing in efficient greenhouse technology to increase their production.

At the Expo AgroAlimentaria the greenhouse growers learn more about these latest efficient greenhouse production methods. Hundreds of exhibitors with greenhouse technology are showcasing their products and services, while the show also brings together stakeholders from the entire fresh produce chain. A large demonstration area showcases innovative greenhouse designs and vegetable seed breeders are showcasing the varieties in numerous demonstration greenhouses. From low tech cultivation, to medium and high tech; all systems and varieties are on display in Irapuato.

This year the show will take place at an even larger and improved exhibition area. over the last year, the organization has been working in close contact with the exhibitors to create a new and better exhibition. New greenhouses and open field demonstration fields have been prepared and responsible growers have been working hard on the demonstration crops that are now ready to be showcased.

The new terrain in Irapuato provides better access and less traffic delays in Irapuato's city center. The premises will have a new indoor greenhouse exhibition area of 4 hectares and an outside machinery exhibition space of 8.5 hectares. On top of this there are now 20 hectares of demonstration plots, 20 greenhouse demonstration sites, and an active machinery demo site of 10 hectares. This will make the show even larger than before, as there is place for a total number of 1,200 exhibition stands.

When? From 24-27 November in Irapuato, Mexico.
