The organisers stated that more than 1,100 participating companies; 120 webinars, online conferences, thematic insights; over 60 accredited Italian and foreign journalists; thousands of professionals have already registered on the platform. And more: 37 foreign delegations representing the planet’s various agricultural players and a full programme of business-to-business meetings by videoconference, which will engage the exhibition industries for 10 days (from 9-19 November).

These are the numbers of EIMA Digital Preview (EDP), the first virtual exhibition dedicated to technologies for agriculture, which will open tomorrow morning at 9:00 and which was presented to the press this afternoon in Bologna. Conceived as a bridge to the EIMA International physical showcase, scheduled for 2021, the digital event is held online from 11-15 November (a longer time frame is contemplated for business meetings), organised by FederUnacoma, the Italian association of agricultural machinery manufacturers.

The event can be followed from all over the world with no time zone limits. In fact, it will be possible to visit the virtual stands of the exhibiting industries 24 hours a day, while webinars and conferences can be followed both live and on-demand, thanks to a video archive available in real-time. However, the real highlight of EDP is three-dimensional architecture.

“Many online exhibitions are based on programmes and models that are already on the net: websites, internet, databases, archives. EIMA Digital Preview is a platform entirely and exclusively designed for the agricultural machinery trade exhibition,” explained Simona Rapastella, General Manager of FederUnacoma. “A virtual neighbourhood in 3D - added Rapastella - where visitors can perform specific actions by moving in the stands’ three-dimensional spaces in an intuitive and captivating way”.

EDP rests on an immersive platform that transports visitors into a real universe - that of agricultural mechanisation - made up of 15 planets that host the digital stands of companies (14 product categories plus one dedicated to the other players in the agromechanical supply chain), a live area (called Agorà), and a section dedicated to the administrative offices of FederUnacoma.
