The 68th edition of the Sant Miquel Agricultural Fair (National Agricultural Machinery Show) and the 37th edition of Eurofruit (Professional Trade Fair for Fruit Industry Suppliers) will take place from 29 September to 2 October 2022 at the Fira de Lleida exhibition centre and will offer a wide and varied exhibition focusing on the agricultural world.
