The first Agro Belgrade 2020 took place from 30 January to 1 February 2020. The event was formally opened by the Serbian Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management, Branislav Nedimovic, who was joined by Milinko Velickovic, head of the City of Belgrade Secretariat for the Economy, and Vladimir Zivanovic, Director of Agro Belgrade.

The exhibition space of 20,000 square metres hosted more than 500 Serbian and foreign producers, processors, and distributors of fruit and vegetables who showcased their wares. These firms were joined by manufacturers and distributors of agricultural machinery and equipment, seed producers, and many companies specialising in plant protection and fertilisers. Also in attendance were some 40 firms from the region and further afield, including companies from Italy, India, Ukraine, the UK, Turkey, the Netherlands, Montenegro, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Greece, and Germany.

The fair was accompanied by a conference at which experts in the field and institutions, organisations, and companies in the fruit, vegetable, and wine growing industry discussed topical challenges, including the use of modern technologies in agriculture, organic production, EU agricultural policies, and the impact of climate change on food production.

The main partners of the Agro Belgrade 2020 fair were the Serbian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management, City of Belgrade Secretariat for the Economy, and the USAID Competitive Economy Project.
