Precisely two weeks are left till the major organic event — BIOFACH 2019 Fair. New hosts of the Ukrainian National Pavilion  Agroportex.bio provided a new business tool — Organic Meeting Planner.

«All those who ever took part in the business events have personally made sure that the entrance pass makes for 10% of success at the most. And it does not matter how much you have paid for it, nor how competitive is your position. The preparation process is mostly about planning: planning meetings, getting prepared for them, having them held and followed on with comments and minutes, and finally, again planning further steps», — says Dmytro Tytarenko, Co-ordinator, Ukrainian National Pavilion.

His team has been successful in getting the public image of innovators through a series of agro-events, the Organic Meeting Planner being further proof of it.


«We are just hosts. We are not in a position to have influence on resulting quality of agreements and effects from participation. But we can help participants to be more efficient and fit them out», — argues Dmytro Tytarenko.

According to him, Organic Meeting Planner — is a good old method, which had been worked out to be run in at the AGROPORT-2015. But, as Dmytro assumes, at that point, they might be ahead of time with this tool.

Organic Meeting Planner is rather simple in use and serves to file all background papers concerning the Fair.


First section contains reference materials. Task sheets with key assignments for the time of the Fair and afterwards


Forms to support business meetings (available at the National Exhibit for each participant, by 150 sheets for everyone).


Feedback sheet, which would help to host team to assess its own performance and serve as a platform to speak out for visitors.


Pre-registration form allows exhibitors and attendees to check in for domestic events and certainly, BIOFACH 2020, in advance.


The second section addresses personally the Fair work details – on the days from February 13 through 16. It starts with the meeting agenda, i.e. summary on key business days of the Fair. There is a blank in each of the three days schedules to fill up with details on meetings, current tasks, reminders, notes, new ideas and contacts.



One more section is left for so-called “Napoleonic plans” meaning the plans and assignments for the next three months that one may want to put on paper to follow-up a meeting.




So, making a schedule for the whole year through to coming BIOFACH 2020 is possible.


And there are the contacts again!


Here, one can find the National Exhibit’s participants catalogue, slots for visiting and other cards



The hosting team also has prepared 100 complimentary express-planners for other Fair participants.


If you exhibit at the Trade Fair remotely or just evaluate BIOFACH, though you have this journey in your plans, start going around the Fair from the Ukrainian National Pavilion. Our express-planners will be presented to 100 organic operators from Ukraine who comes first.

For reference: BIOFACH — the World´s Leading Trade Fair for Organic Food, held in Nürnberg, Germany. For 29 years in a row BIOFACHhas called up organic producers from all over the World. It all began with 197 exhibitors and 2500 visitors in the Ludwigshafen Stadthalle in 1990. The exhibition was organized in Nuremberg for the first time in 1999 and brought together as many as 1276 exhibitors and more than 21000 visitors.

AGROPORT Ukraine — a large-scale event held yearly in support of farmers and agrarian producers in Ukraine and Eastern Europe. Since 2014 it has been held on facilities of international airports with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) involvement within the framework of the World Food Day. Since 2018 AGROPORT has been exhibiting in three cities to address individual interests of agricultural producers in the Western, East and South of Ukraine.
