From November 13 to 16, the world's leading trade fair for animal production, EuroTier 2018, will take place at Hanover Exhibition Centre. The leading companies in the livestock industry will show a complete range of their products and services, including numerous innovations. So far, more than 2,200 exhibitors from 60 countries have registered for this year’s event. Substantially more than half the exhibitors come from outside Germany. A high level of European participation has been noted, mainly from the Netherlands (187), France (122), Italy (119), Spain (80), Denmark (59), United Kingdom (58), Belgium (50), Austria (50), Turkey (50) and Poland (45). From overseas, China (156) leads the list, followed by Canada (30), USA (25) and India, Pakistan and Korea with about 20 exhibitors each.
Animal welfare and digitization drive innovation
At EuroTier, the competition for the most innovative machinery and equipment for international markets will take place. The innovations shown here in the areas of livestock building construction, feeding and husbandry, as well as digital animal monitoring solutions and control technology, will provide a new impetus for efficiency, animal management and animal welfare. An independent, international committee of experts set up by the DLG will again be evaluating the EuroTier innovations submitted by exhibitors, and then award gold and silver medals in accordance with strict criteria.
"Digital Animal Farming" Special feature
An increasingly digitally connected world opens up new possibilities for successfully combining productivity and animal welfare, as well as information management and the sustainable use of natural resources. Efficiency and animal health, in addition to transparency and quality in the production processes, are now the key to economic and ecological success in livestock farming.
Under the theme "Digital Animal Farming", the DLG, together with partners from business, science and consulting, will also be providing information on the significance of digitization for modern livestock farming as part of a special feature at EuroTier 2018 in Hanover. Whether in production monitoring, animal health or animal welfare or also transparency (or traceability) across the entire processing chain to the consumer, the use of sensors and targeted data management allows the needs of the animals, the environment, the farmer and consumers alike to be taken into account. In Hall 26, a special area will host exhibitors presenting exhibits and explanations on animal husbandry in the digital age. In addition, short lecture events and discussion groups are planned in the forum.
"EnergyDecentral" – International Trade Fair for Innovative Energy Supply
EnergyDecentral, the international trade fair for innovative energy supply that takes place parallel to EuroTier, is all about energy from renewable sources such as biogas, biogenic solid fuels, engine systems (CHP), wind power, solar energy and smart energy. In a special feature this year, visitors can expect a show with live commentary organized by the DLG. This will show how photovoltaics, wind and biogas can intelligently supply all electricity consumers with green electricity on demand.
Developments in the market for biogas will be discussed at the "BIOGAS Convention" trade conference organized by the Biogas Association. This is the world's largest meeting point for the biogas industry, and one that visitors from outside Germany find particularly valuable as a source of information on economic considerations and technology trends in numerous international discussion events.
For the first time, the European Biomass Association’s (AEBIOM) European Bioenergy Future (EBF) event, which focuses on biogenic solid fuels, will be held at EnergyDecentral. The special practical demonstration "Biogenic solid fuels: wood and stalk biomass" will take place at the outdoor area, highlighting its low-emissions and cost-efficiency. Finally, "Predictive Maintenance" for combined heat and power plants will once again form a focal point at EnergyDecentral 2018.
Groundbreaking, innovative developments in the energy industry are once again eligible to enter the innovation award scheme, which may result in an "EnergyDecentral" innovation medal. An independent, international committee of recognized experts will evaluate the innovations, and the medals will be awarded during the fair.
bpt congress again at the same time as the EuroTier
Once again this year, the German Association of Veterinarians (bpt) will hold its annual congress and accompanying trade fair "Veterinary Medicine" overlapping with EuroTier at the Hanover Exhibition Centre. An "International Animal Health Event", organized jointly by the DLG and the bpt, will once again provide veterinarians from all over the world with a meeting place and contact exchange, as well as a link between the EuroTier and the bpt congress.
Many meeting places for professional livestock owners
Together with partners from business, science, consulting, associations and organizations, the DLG will once again be presenting an extensive specialist program as a supplement to the exhibitors' offerings this year. These include international conferences and events on current trends and important industry developments. Popular meeting places for top international farmers and advisors are the EuroTier Cattle & Pig Event and the International Poultry Event, all of which take place on the eve of the exhibition opening on November 12, 2018 at the Convention Center (CC). These are important contact and information exchange events.
