The Covid-19 emergency has defined a new economic and social geography with global restrictions. The international trade show calendar has been completely revised and many events have been cancelled or postponed. EIMA International also had to revise its schedule by moving the Bologna exhibition to February 2021, and planning an important and detailed digital preview of the event for November 2020.
The Italian International Agricultural Machinery Exhibition (EIMA) is a two-yearly event organized by the Italian Association of Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers, which began in 1969. The exhibition is sponsored by one of the UFI certified members of the Global Agricultural Machinery Alliance, and its far-reaching influence and strong appeal make EIMA one of the largest and most professional international agricultural events in the world. In 2016, 1915 exhibitors from 44 countries and regions participated, of which 655 were international exhibitors with an exhibition area of 300,000 square meters, bringing together 300,000 professional visitors from 150 countries and regions, including 45,000 international professional visitors.
EIMA Expo 2020 aims to continue to consolidate its leading position in the agricultural machinery industry. The record numbers at the 2018 EIMA Expo are a testament to the growth trend of the Bologna-style exhibition over the years. More than 150 professional conferences, seminars and forums focused on economics, agriculture and technology were held. More than 700 journalists from around the world participated to demonstrate that the EIMA Expo has stimulated press interest in the agricultural machinery industry and led to a growing number of people in the industry paying attention to and participating in the fair through the Internet and social media. With an increase in international audiences and international official delegations, the 2016 EIMA Expo has further enhanced its internationality. Thanks to the cooperation of the Italian Federation of Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers and the Italian Trade Promotion Association, 80 foreign delegations participated in the 2016 EIMA Expo, which not only organized numerous visits at the exhibition site, but also held B2B meetings in specific regions, and organized a series of important events in cooperation with professional and authoritative institutions responsible for agricultural and trade development from many countries.
On the way to "globalization" of Chinese agricultural machinery, Chinese agricultural machinery workers realize that exchanges and cooperation with agricultural machinery powers are being important. As of May 2015, China was Italy's ninth largest export market and third largest source of imports. According to Eurostat, Italy imported $12.82 billion from China in January-May 2015, accounting for 7.5 percent of its total imports. China and Italy have many complementary models for the development of agricultural mechanization and can learn from the place, as the organizers of this exhibition.
