CroAGRO - A fair that agriculture deserves
CroAgro - the top national and the central agricultural event brings together farmers, manufacturers and experts from the entire region under a single roof every year. The fair is an ideal platform for networking and exchanging experiences and knowledge at B2B meetings, presenting new products and services, as well as sharing experiences with visitors for improving their own business.
Numerous advantages of participation and presentation of goods and services at the CroAGRO Fair were recognized by the most important companies and producers from the agricultural sector.

The exhibition, professional and educational segments of this fair include the most modern agricultural machinery and equipment, agricultural and food products, seedlings and seeds, means for plant protection and increasing the natural soil fertility and all necessary equipment and raw materials for production.
CROAGRO is an agricultural and family fair offering numerous interesting contents for all generations. It is the only agricultural fair in Croatia that takes place in indoor, heated and arranged spaces during a pause in agricultural activity, thus enabling better presentation possibilities to exhibitors.
This term is also ideal for negotiating a new agricultural season and networking with business partners in a holiday environment, with promotional offers and novelties.
