springboard to eastern and central Europe.

innovations and solutions to the targeted customer audience at the show," adds
Eichberg.
    "Independent surveys reveal that visitor numbers are made up of
business-oriented farmers, contractors, machinery rings and dealers from all
over the world."
    As well as the usual lines of machinery exhibits and innovations, this
year will also focus on:

    
    -   Climate change and soil conservation "world soil and tillage show"
