“Zootechnia” is the only specialized event in Greece and the Balkans, regarding livestock and poultry and it was held for the 11th time from 31 January to 3 February at the Thessaloniki International Exhibition Centre. All major businesses were present, and they presented the latest developments in the sector; everything from the most important food producing animals to machinery, equipment, services and research.
The exhibition marks developments in a very dynamic primary production field and establishes the new standards of a sector which, in early 2019, will go through a period of improvement-plan approval, which will lead to investment and action implementation acceleration in the livestock-poultry sector. “Zootechnia 2019” continued the upward trajectory recorded by the corresponding event of 2017, which proved to be the best ever, breaking records in visitor and exhibitor numbers.
The CLICHA project was present in this event at the pavilion of the Agricultural University of Athens (AUA). The pavilion was staffed by the Department of International and Public Relations of the AUA as well as volunteer students and staff who distributed printed information material and informed the visitors. During the exhibition, the pavilion of the University was visited by the Deputy Minister of the Hellenic Ministry of Agriculture, Mr. V. Kokkalis, the Region Directors of Epirus and Thessaly, Mr. A. Kakrimanis and K. Agorastos, representatives of organizations, journalists of the agricultural press, many professionals, producers and visitors interested in learning about the actions that are implemented the AUA, including the CLICHA project.
