Chocolate Towns

Last week, I enjoyed the hospitality of the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, Pennsylvania, and this week, I’m across the Atlantic in Brussels, Belgium. Hershey was the host site of our Dealer Council Meeting, a twice-a-year opportunity to learn about their businesses and ours. Brussels is the home of our European operations, giving me a chance to meet with my fellow Team Members, customers, and distributors. Both are home to some of the world’s finest chocolate.

My visit to Europe was timed to also spend a day in Hannover, Germany, at Agritechnica, the world’s largest — and perhaps finest — agricultural exhibition. In a day, we barely scratched the surface, but we did manage to speed-visit every hall, but one.

What caught my attention? Everything! I felt like a kid in a chocolate shop! However, here’s what I found most photo-worthy: AGCO’s blacked and gray styled combines, sporting both Massey and Fendt badges.

The show returns again in two years, and I hope to have more time to explore. In the meantime, I’m back in Brussels, exploring the sites and sampling the chocolate.
