GERMANY - EuroTier show organisers are offering a series of presentations in English from world experts on health, nutrition and consumer trends.


Presentations in English from the wealth of information on world poultry developments available during the Poultry Forum are featured for the first time this year. The English presentations cover afternoon panel sessions of the Poultry Forum held in Hall 11 during the first three days of EuroTier 2008, the world's largest animal husbandry exhibition in Hanover, Germany on 11-14 November. EuroTier also hosts the World Poultry Show (WPS) with its 220 international exhibitors offering an extra attraction for specialist poultry sector visitors attending the forum.

"The poultry sector is international in its outlook and quick in its adoption of best-management practices from other countries and this means we are catering for an eager market with our English forum presentations," points out Heidy Schonebeck, Poultry Production Manager with EuroTier organiser DLG.

"These include veterinary solutions for producers but also presentations on consumer buying behaviour as influenced by factors such as animal welfare and food security." Karl Schlösser, Project Manager of EuroTier adds that a record 70 per cent of exhibitors at the concurrent World Poultry Show (WPS) are from outside Germany this year while the popularity of poultry meat in Germany makes this country especially suitable as a base for the WPS with production increased by nearly 14 per cent in 2007 and another 12 per cent for the first four months of this year compared with the same period in 2007. Mr Schlösser adds that poultry meat sales are also up in Germany – by 10 per cent including a 25 per cent increase in fresh meat sales on the year.
