We all hope that real-world meetings will soon be possible again. In the meantime, video conferences and online events help us maintain contact with customers and partners. But international business relations, active customer acquisition and the presentation of new products suffer from the current limitations. Not everything can be digitised successfully. Some things just have to be seen, touched and tried out in the flesh.
This is also true for agricultural technology, and that is why manufacturers and customers in this sector are looking forward with anticipation to Agritechnica, scheduled to take place in Hanover from 14 to 20 November 2021. Every two years, the leading companies present their products and innovations at the world's leading trade fair for agricultural technology. The whole world of agribusiness meets here, and the suppliers from Russia are there as a matter of course.
In the hope that Agritechnica 2021 can take place as planned, the Russian manufacturers are already preparing for their appearance at the fair. They will present their portfolio in Hanover and seek contact with potential customers and business partners. Export promotion is an ambitious project of the Russian Federation, and especially the production of agricultural technology has known a high export dynamic in 2020 – during the pandemic.
DMAN is an established partner for building international contacts and exploring business opportunities in foreign markets. Thanks to our more than 30 years of successful work on the Russian market, we are a recognized point of contact for bilateral projects for German companies, especially for those bases in Lower Saxony.
With this in mind, today we would like to introduce you to some Russian manufacturers of agricultural machinery from the Altai region that you can meet at Agritechnica 2021:
