– Bangalore’s Palace Grounds to host major agricultural expo in August 2010

Leading Agrotechnology event expected to increase demand for Bangalore hotel accommodation

Online PR News – 11-July-2010 – – Agritech India 2010 is a major South Indian agricultural expo aimed at increasing the domestic market by the use of modern food technology. The event, to be held between 20-22 August, is expected to attract high numbers of food industry representatives to Bangalore’s Palace Grounds exhibition centre.

According to, hotel rooms close by the venue may be in short supply due to strong demand from exhibitors and attendees, as a high number of visitors from the manufacturing, processing, consultancy and retail sectors are expected to arrive.

Exhibitors will feature food processing and packaging equipment, the latest fertiliser, pesticide and refrigeration technology, seeds, processed, frozen and packaged foods, edible oils, health foods, organics and herbal products and much more, all aimed at producers and investors.

The event aims to strengthen all aspects of Indian agriculture including marketing and export by spreading knowledge of the latest technological advances and modern practices both on and off farm. Visitors are encouraged to book rooms in Bangalore hotels well in advance though to avoid problems with accommodation near the exhibition site.’s marketing head, Lek Boonlert, explains. “Agritech India 2010 could cause problems for both exhibitors and visitors in finding suitable hotel rooms close by the Palace Grounds. Industry events of this type drive up demand not only for the duration of the events but for several days either side as well.”
