Agritechnica is the world's leading exhibition for agricultural machinery. It is organised every two years by the DLG (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft e.V. – German Agricultural Society). In 2005 almost 260,000 visitors came to see the over 1500 exhibitors at the Exhibition Grounds in Hanover. In times of globalisation, the share of participants from other countries - both exhibitors and visitors -is growing continuously.
