NAMPO Harvest Day, known for its ability to bring the agricultural sector together for almost six decades and is one of the largest agricultural exhibitions in the Southern Hemisphere that is privately organised, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But as we speak, event organisers have planted new digital seeds with its virtual expo and John Deere isn't missing this one!
John Deere Africa has always been history makers as could be seen in the recent Tech Terrain campaign that was launched during lockdown, and once again they are proud to be involved in making history at the first-ever Nampo Virtual 2020 hosted by Grain SA.
The show will run from 9 to 12 September 2020 and is free for all visitors.
“John Deere has been an anchor exhibitor at Nampo for more than 50 years,” says Jacques Taylor, John Deere's managing director, Sub-Saharan Africa. “Now that the show is virtual, visitors are able to interact with the stand online from the comfort of their own home.”
Visitors to the John Deere stand at Nampo have always enjoyed the size, scale and wow-factor that this agricultural giant contributes to the show, and this year promises to be no exception. Expo guests can view John Deere’s latest models, receive trade show specials and merchandise promotions as well as attend daily events including Q&As with Deere's executives and experts, and much more.
“This year we have gone to a new level with our stand at Nampo Virtual,” says Stephan Nel, John Deere’s Marketing Manager, Sub-Saharan Africa. “We have always been leaders in agricultural technology at John Deere, and this year we know we are going to surprise and delight our visitors like never before. Follow us on social media to stay in the loop @JohnDeereAfrica.”
Besides the event that will feature most of what attendees would have experienced at the physical Harvest Day, John Deere has added multiple daily giveaways and competitions which will run via their Facebook virtual Nampo event page as well as throughout the four-day expo.
“NAMPO is not only about generating leads and sales, it's also about representing the true humility of Deere to our customers and demonstrating we remain vested in South African and African agriculture for the long run," said Stephan Nel.
Nampo Virtual Expo entry is free, and industry leaders and agricultural professionals are encouraged to register via the Nampo Virtual website from September 1st.
“Let’s make Agriculture in Africa greater, together,” says Jacques Taylor.
