Why Your Visit Is Worth It
There’s a lot to be gained from SPACE as an event. The trade show has one of the most involved support programs that give you the latest information on every area of farming interest. The sheer size of it and the general turnout are also strong enough reasons to justify becoming part of it:
- 1500+ international exhibitors from 40+ countries showcased at the event;
- 115,000+ international trade visitors from 120+ countries made the trip;
- 700 bovines and ovine in presentation;
- almost 100 conferences and symposiums.
SPACE is shortened from the French Salon des Productions Animales - Carrefour Européen and is a long-running event held in Rennes since 1986. This annual event is held at Rennes Exhibition Center near the airport where there is enough space for the demands of the products and machinery on display, alongside the livestock brought to interested farmers. The product portfolio is diverse as exhibitors come from every possible area - animal feed and nutrition, milking equipment, farm equipment and building, animal health, genetics, agrobiology, energies, aquaculture suppliers and veterinary medicine. Because there’s such a focus on animal breeding, a large part of the program is filled with animal competitions. After all, there is a good reason for SPACE to be heralded as a genetics hub!
Who Are You Going to Meet?
SPACE commands incredible turnout, but at its core the show is a fundamentally French affair. Only 15,000 trade visitors out of 115,000 were foreign nationals, which might seem like a very small percentage, but at least they’re very diverse with most of Europe, the USA and Asia present. The distribution between national and foreign exhibitors is much better with about 30% of all to exhibit coming from outside France. As far as who are the trade visitors that frequent the show –there’s professionals in cattle (dairy and meat), poultry, pigs, sheep, goats, rabbits and aquaculture.
