Summary of Central Agricultural Fair 2020

The fourth edition of the Central Agricultural Fair in Ptak Warsaw Expo has already finished. When the post-trade dust is falling, we start to summarize the past event and, of course, to plan next year’s edition, which will raise the biggest fair of modern technologies for agriculture to an even higher level.

Orlen an honorary partner of the Central Agricultural Fair

The grand opening of the fair was honored by many distinguished guests, who were welcomed by the President of Ptak Warsaw Expo – Tomasz Szypuła. The visitors gathered in front of the stage were addressed by Jan Krzysztof Ardanowski – Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Wiktor Szmulewicz – President of the National Council of Agricultural Chambers and Janusz Kogut, President of Orlen Paliwa. At this point it is worth noting the role played by the Orlen Capital Group in the organization of the fair – for the first time in the history of the Central Agricultural Fair, it was taken over by an honorary partnership.

Agricultural equipment premiers

After the official welcome, it was time for the visitors, who crowded the corridors to admire what the exhibitors have to offer this year. Undoubtedly, the lovers of agricultural machinery could not take their eyes off the novelties that appeared in the Ptak Warsaw Expo halls. CLAAS LEXION 8700, CLAAS AXION 960TT, New Holland T7 – 165 S or Kubota MGX 115 are the models that enjoyed the greatest popularity among agricultural enthusiasts, but were also part of the traditional competition. As every year, companies presenting their machines, equipment and all agricultural products fought for prestigious awards, which were presented during an excellent gala – the Golden Crane of Agriculture.

Feast of the agricultural industry

Agriculture is primarily made up of people who drive positive energy for the whole industry. This idea was guided by the awarding of prizes in the framework of the Mistrzowie Agro contest organized by the Polish Press Group. The title of the Chief of the Year was received by Tamara Kalinowska. The great work that she is doing for the village of Koziróg Rzeczny from Tłuchowo commune in the Kujawsko-Pomorskie province was appreciated.

The Central Agricultural Fair is also an opportunity for every farmer to improve their qualifications and broaden their knowledge through participation in trainings and conferences. This year, these included conferences prepared by the National Association of Soles and panels of the Agricultural Advisory Centre, where the most important issues for farmers were discussed.

What besides business?

The fair has it in common that it is an incredibly complex and multifaceted event, which makes it a difficult place to visit in one day. Undoubtedly, such events include the Central Agricultural Fair, which in addition to its great value, also brings entertainment. It was taken care of by the unquestionable music star of Disco-Polo CZADOMAN, who kidnapped everyone to a crazy party during the evening of the exhibitors.

The visitors‘ attention was also attracted by the competition in the Polish Agro Strongman Cup. As the name suggests, the competition was based on competition related to agriculture, such as pulling a 4-ton tractor and throwing a tire from a 370 kg tractor.

During the fourth edition of the Central Agricultural Fair AgroCon – the first in Poland Agricultural Youtuber Festival – also debuted. This element clearly shows that both the agricultural sector and the fair, open to new ones and go with the times. Among youtubers there was Ewa Szczepaniak (Complex of Veterinary and Natural Schools), Grzegorz Bardowski „Bardowski“, Magdalena Urbaniak „Tractormania“, Piotr Kaliski „A farmer is looking for a tractor“ or Mateusz Misiak „Matheo780“.

Central Agricultural Fair in Figures

Our summary could not miss the statistics, especially since they were record-breaking this year. 31,587 visitors admired the presentation of more than 250 brands, a result that is impressive not only in the country but also in Europe.

These figures are a clear message – the Central Agricultural Fair is an important element in the development of Polish agriculture. Just like our honorary partner, the Orlen Group, we want to be the fuel driving the industry, we will support the creation of a place for meetings, exchange of experience, education and business. We cannot wait for the 5th edition of the Central Agricultural Fair in Ptak Warsaw Expo with this idea. See you next year!
