Introduction

Agricultural shows and events are a time to celebrate the harvest and the achievements in different sectors which make up agriculture. They are a time when people involved in the agricultural value chain meet up again,  network and review the latest technologies and trends. A number of these events occur in South Africa, and we have listed many of these.

This page is in no way the full picture, and the reader is referred to the agricultural weeklies, Landbouweekblad and Farmer’s Weekly, or their websites to find a calendar of the latest shows. Visit www.landbou.com and www.farmersweekly.co.za.

Find details of many shows, mostly in the Western Cape, at www.agriexpo.co.za. Some of these, in turn, have their own websites e.g. www.swartlandskou.co.za.

Some agricultural role players like the Agricultural Business Chamber (Agbiz) keep their members informed of agricultural events through their newsletters or on their websites.

Our stall at NAMPO a few minutes after sunrise. The first waves of visitors happen already at this time. If you, the exhibitor, are outside buying coffee or taking in the view you will miss them.
