Bothaville, Free State, South Africa
NAMPO Harvest Day 2014 will be held May 13-16, 2014 in Bothaville, Free State South Africa. Nampo Harvest Day is the largest agricultural exhibition on the African continent, attracting over 600 exhibitors and 73,550 attendees from 4 continents in 2011 and 71,723 in 2012, the increase in 2011 was due to a public holiday during the show dates. Nampo is important both for its access to the South African agricultural equipment market--Africa's largest and well-established market for U.S. products--and as a venue for selling to buyers from neighboring African countries where commercial agriculture has begun to grow rapidly. The first NAMPO Harvest Day began in 1967. The show covers over 150,000 square meters, most of it outside. The show embraces all agricultural machinery, products and service manufacturers and distributors. In the end, the NAMPO Harvest Day focuses on farmers--its primary customer--and what it takes for the farming community to prosper and grow.
