With the fast changing economy and increasing impact of WTO on Indian agriculture the significance of quick information access, and exposure to latest products, technologies and marketing opportunities is of prime importance. There is a growing need and importance of a platform where the policy makers, Government officials, prospective investors, development institutions and companies can interact. AgroVision 2018 aims to provide an opportunity for participants to showcase products, services, schemes and technologies to potential users and farmers. The Development Meet proposed as part of the event on the theme "Investment opportunities and growth potential in agro sector in Uttar Pradesh " would help in formulating a comprehensive policy to promote growth and investment in this sector. Recognising the importance of an national level agri event in the country's largest state, Uttar Pradesh, and the overwhelming response from the industry and the Government of Uttar Pradesh, ICFA in consultation with all the supporting bodies is organizing AgroVision in Lucknow (India) on 14-15 March, 2018 at the campus of Indian Institute of Sugarcane Research. IISR is the world's premier research institute on sugarcane under the Government of India's Indian Council of Agricultural Research.

The stalls would be of various sizes depending on the requirements of the exhibitors. The entire event would be put up in fourteen hangers. Some hangers may be added or merged as per booking availability. Large farm machinery would be displayed in open area earmarked for this purpose.
