The Advanced Agricultural Technology Expo (AATE) will be held at KINTEX in Ilsan from December 5 to 8. This is the first time that an event dealing with the agricultural industry’s convergence and integration technologies will be held in Korea, and it will host 120 participants in 500 booths during the 4 day period.

Smart Farms, Vegetable Museum, Farming Gadgets, and More

The exhibition will consist of three pavilions: Convergence and Technology, Cutting-Edge Technology, and Advanced Mechanics. The Converge and Technology Pavilion will display smart farms, vegetable factories, and high-tech farming gadgetry. The Cutting-Edge Technology Pavilion will display high-tech farming materials and energy recycling technologies. The Advanced Mechanics Pavilion will show equipment and vehicles such as handheld tools, tractors, and combines.

Developing advanced technology strengthens Korea’s competitive edge in the imminent age of free trade. AATE will invite key farming industry experts, government officials, and research scientists to introduce Korea’s leading technologies and provide information relating to farming products. Overseas business consulting will also be offered to businesses interested in export trading.

The idea of this convention, sponsored by the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, is to introduce ICT Convergence and Integration for farming business around the world, and act as Asia’s premiere promotion vehicle for farming technologies.

The event spokesperson said, “Europe is hosting AGRITECHNICA in Hannover, Germany, and the United States World Ag Expo in Tulare, California. We think that it is necessary for us to have our own show to attract audiences who want to know more about Asia’s farming business.” The spokesperson added, “With this show, we will introduce some of the cutting-edge technologies of Korea, and coordinate trade between international businesses and Korean farmers.”

Events to Be Held including “Farmbrewed Beverages” Festival

Various events are scheduled for the 4-day event, including the International Symposium on ICT Convergence and Integration, the Presentation of Production Technologies for Advanced Projects and Business, the Forum on the KoreaAsian Mekong Farming Co-op, and the Rice Cake and Farm-brewed Beverages Festival.
