Agritechnica 2017 was on this week; this agricultural machinery showcase is the biggest of its kind in the world.
Manufacturers not just from Germany and Europe but from all over the globe flocked to the event; it is simply massive. In fact, almost 2,800 exhibitors partook.
Hundreds of thousands of visitors from a multitude of countries, including Ireland, made the biennial pilgrimage to Hanover, Germany - the long-time home of the exhibition.
On Monday (November 13), we brought you an on-site report from the extravaganza.

All of these photographs are from this week's event; the gallery encompasses shots from a multitude of exhibition halls.
The show spanned seven days - a mammoth if potentially exhausting proposition for those fronting the many trade stands.
The organisers claim that the last such event (in 2015) attracted a total of 451,000 visitors; it will be interesting to see what the final tally will be this time around - when everything is totted up.
