COMPANIES are doing final touches on exhibition stands in preparation for the Zimbabwe Agricultural Show which kicks off on Monday.

Presenting an update on the preparations for the annual exhibition, Zimbabwe Agricultural Society Chairman, Dr Misheck Kachere expressed optimism about a successful agri-business trade show.

“Space uptake to date is over 54 000 square metres, indicating a strong rebound in business following the adverse impact of the Covid-19 pandemic in the last two years,” he said.

The Zimbabwe-Botswana Business Forum is expected to be a major highlight of the annual exhibition.

“There are several business conferences including the dinner on climate change, annual national agribusiness conference, mining and agriculture interface and the mining and agriculture breakfast meeting, including a Zimbabwe-Botswana Forum,” said Dr Andrew Matibiri, the Zimbabwe Agriculture Society chief executive officer.

Some of the sections for the annual exhibition include agri-produce, tobacco, livestock, micro-enterprise and commercial exhibitions.

The first three days will be strictly for business with the public being allowed to attend the exhibition from Thursday to Saturday.
