Calling all sponsors and exhibitors for AGFO Expo 2017

The Agriculture and Forestry Expo (AGFO) 2017 takes place at the Casterbridge Lifestyle Centre in White River, Mpumalanga, from 14 to 16 September 2017.

The AGFO Expo, the preferred trade platform for the agriculture and forestry sectors, proved extremely successful last year and, with the number of sponsors and exhibitors that have already come on board for 2017, it promises a wide variety of sector-specific exhibitors and a successful networking and trade platform.

“Great trade figures were reported at AGFO 2016,” confirms Joey Lascelles, Chairperson of the AGFO committee and CEO at United Forest Products.

“This is because it’s designed as an effective trading platform for the agriculture and forestry industries in Mpumalanga, where like-minded people are able to gather, network and do business to ensure the growth of the economy in these sectors,” she says.

“AGFO’s objectives for 2017 are to again ensure that we promote agriculture and forestry in the area, that it’s a successful trade platform for exhibitors and that we promote local businesses and make use of local entertainment during the event,” says Lascelles.
