Grain SA’s NAMPO Harvest Day is one of the largest agricultural exhibitions under private ownership in the southern hemisphere and it takes place annually, just outside of the town of Bothaville, in the Free State province of South Africa. The first NAMPO Harvest Day was held in 1967, on the farm, Donkerhoek, near Bloemfontein and was attended by 200 producers. Thereafter the Harvest Day was held on various farms until the size of the event started necessitating a more permanent venue. In 1974 the NAMPO Harvest Day was therefore established on a permanent terrain outside Bothaville, which is today known as NAMPO Park.
Grain SA’s NAMPO Harvest Day enables producers and other role players in the agricultural industry to experience the latest technology and products on offer in the farming industry first-hand and on one terrain. The NAMPO Harvest Day also offers producers the opportunity to obtain knowledge from experts in their various agricultural fields by means of debating and discussion panels. A unique aspect of the NAMPO Harvest Day is that it is a multifaceted presentation that offers a wide spectrum to the producer, whilst other exhibitions normally only focus on specific areas of agriculture. The products and services that are displayed by the more than 750 exhibitors, establish the NAMPO Harvest Day as a diversified trade exhibition, which offers producers the opportunity to compare a wide variety of products and services and in so doing, enables them to make informed decisions. NAMPO also offers producers high level exhibitions with direct access to a multitude of specialists and experts in various fields.
Grain SA strives to keep the NAMPO Harvest Day trade oriented as an agricultural and trade exhibition with a specific focus on agriculture and not on entertainment and the exhibition of flea market items. Grain SA’s NAMPO Harvest Day is dynamic and each year the organisers strive to keep pace with the changing needs, requirements and expectations of producers and role players in the agricultural sector. Where the original focus was only on maize producers, the Harvest Day today focuses on the complete agricultural sector. The Harvest Day is also regarded by Grain SA as one of the best contributors to ensure sustained food production in South as well as Southern Africa.
