EIMA 2018, Bologna – International Agricultural and Gardening Machinery Exhibition

16. 11. 2018.

Agricultural Equipment Cluster performed for the fourth time at the 43rd International Fair of Agricultural Machinery EIMA 2018 this year in cooperation with the Croatian Chamber of Economy (HGK), which was held from November 7 to 11 in Bologna, Italy.

What has distinguished appearance of Agricultural Equipment Cluster and its members in this year’s performance, in relation to all previous appearances, is the fact that for the first time the presentation of Cluster members was conducted in two exhibition spaces, the first was in Hall 36 where the final products were exhibited along side giants like John Deer, and the second was in the hall no. 15 where spare parts and components were presented.

In Hall 36 its products presented Hittner Ltd from Bjelovar, a manufacturer of agricultural and forestry tractors and mowers, Megametal Ltd. from Nedelisce, manufacturer of tractor outlets, as well as other cluster members that were presented through promotional film of Agricultural Equipment Cluster and a variety of printed promotional materials. In hall no. 15 its products exhibited POD Ltd. Dezanovac, manufacturer of springs for agricultural machinery, and HIDRAULIKA-Kutina Inc. Kutina, manufacturer of hydraulic components.

This year’s EIMA 2018 was very well attended and very large number of business talks were conducted between Cluster members and potential buyers. The general impression was that this has been Cluster’s most successful show so far. This fact is due to the efforts undertaken to ensure the placement of Cluster and its members in more appropriate exhibition halls, than was previously the case. This extraordinary effort was assisted by the Croatian Chamber of Economy and the Embassy of the Republic of Croatia in Rome, specifically by Ambassador Jasen Mesic and by Croatian Consulate General in Milan, specifically by Consul General Iva Pavic, who visited Clusters exhibition area on the first day of the Fair.
