Dear visitors!
24th Maamess brings together news from agriculture, forestry, gardening and food industry. Maamess hosts 450 companies from 10 countries.

Every Maamess is unique. We can say for sure that the number of companies and visitors has grown every year – this year Maamess hosts 450 companies and takes 60 000 square metres of exhibition space.

Maamess as a mirror of rural life gives an excellent opportunity to make company visible and familiar for agricultural companies and organizations, foresters, gardening enthusiasts and food industry. Maamess is a meeting place for professionals to exchange latest information, establish new contacts and make deals. Maamess is also important to people living in cities, to whom Maamess brings fresh food and gives an opportunity to explore rural life, because Maamess is versatile:

XXIV International Agricultural Exhibition
XXII International Timber Processing & Forestry Exhibition
XXII Food Fair
XVIII Gardening Exhibition

Maamess is a main event for many companies to show new products and to communicate with clients. The heavy equipment presented in fair is also one of the audience magnets. Similar to last years all interesting news are marked with a special sign, originated from Maamess’ graphic design, this year with “cow-sign”. Definitely all machines which are modern etc are marked so visitors can find them easily.

Due to this year’s graphic design, Maamess pays attention to milk and dairy products – milk is like a “white gold” in Estonia. Maamess contributes by agitating visitors to consume local dairy products. Maamess will have many displays where visitors can taste dairy products and buy them. Of course there will be a cow in animal’s tent.

Maamess’ Show Arena has a busy schedule. On the first day there will be a competition between gardening students and traditionally Kevadkarikas opens the season of foresters competitions.

Welcome to Tartu! See you at Maamess!

Dear exhibitors!
MAAMESS 2016, 21-23 April, Tartu Fairs Centre, ESTONIA

40 890 visitors, 450 companies from 9 countries and 50 000 square metres of exhibition space – that was last year’s MAAMESS, organised by Tartu Fairs Ltd. Annual visitor numbers are growing steadily, and this is all the more gratifying because the fair is designed primarily for professionals.

MAAMESS is like a mirror of rural life: an excellent opportunity to make your company visible and familiar to farmers and agricultural organisations. Here foresters and agriculturalists, food industry representatives and gardening enthusiasts can establish new contacts, exchange the latest information and gain useful experience.

XXIV International Agricultural Exhibition
XXII International Timber Processing & Forestry Exhibition
XXII Food Fair
XVIII Gardening Exhibition

The high quality of MAAMESS is confirmed its membership of EURASCO, the organisation uniting the largest agricultural exhibition organisers in Europe. MAAMESS also cooperates with fairs conducted in neighbouring countries that are dedicated to agriculture and rural life.

It is wonderful that with each passing year there are more and more companies and delegations from abroad among MAAMESS participants. The fair is not a purely Estonian event – it is important for many foreign companies. The participation of 42 companies from other countries in last year’s Maamess is testament to this, as is the high number of delegations and their composition. The opening of the fair was attended by foreign guests of the Baltic Agroforum, including representatives of several countries and international organisations.

I am certain that the 24th MAAMESS will be comprehensive and productive. Returning participants and new companies are equally welcome! You can find more information about MAAMESS 2016 from www.maamess.ee.

To take part in MAAMESS, please fill in the registration form and send it to the organizer.

Welcome to Tartu!
See you at Maamess!
