The international technology trade fair INTERVITIS INTERFRUCTA HORTITECHNICA has switched from being held every 3 years to every 2 years, and in 2016 showcased special crops for the first time. Therefore, the trade fair is not only a must for all producers of wine, fruit, fruit juice, spirits, but also for all those involved in cultivating e.g. asparagus, strawberries, salad, hops etc. Through the unique combination of a trade fair, congress and special events, industry visitors also get the chance to exchange experiences with practitioners, advisers and experts from the world of science and research as well as learning about world-class technology and innovations.

Accompanying programme

A number of special events and the tasting zone complement the programme of specialist exhibitions.



The DWV machine demonstrations are an informative experience!

Under the motto “Experience technology live!”, visitors have the chance to experience a number of new products. In 2018, you also have the opportunity to marvel at seeing the latest machines in action, and learn all about innovations in the cultivation and harvesting of wine and special crops up close in person.

The big highlight for visitors in 2016 - the special show “Drones and Robotics“!

At the special show supported by the German Federal Ministry for Food and Agriculture, representatives from German teaching and research institutes as well as both German and international market leaders demonstrate innovative prototypes of the ongoing automation seen in the cultivation of wine and special crops.



Guests visiting the “tasting zone” can do more than just learn about how wine is produced; they can also experience it for themselves with their tastebuds. There, guests can “taste technology”, and find out which scientific questions relating to viticulture and wine-growing are currently preoccupying national and international teaching and research institutes. Guided tasting sessions are held twice every day.
