A small section of the huge tented site
From the 28th of April to 2 May, the Imperial city of Meknes will host an international agricultural exhibition. When The View from Fez visited the site, preparations were well in hand. A large number of huge tented pavilions have been erected as well as numerous small ones.
The site, next to the famous grain storage silos built centuries ago by Moulay Ismael, is being paved, cleaned up and decorated in preparation, with work going on around the clock.
According to local sources there will be over 25 different countries taking part and exhibits will include everything from the latest agricultural and farming technologies through to livestock.
The scale of the exhibition is extremely impressive and should prove to be a major draw card for Meknes.
