Sival Increases Floor Space For Crop Industry In 2014

SIVAL, a leading European trade show for the crop-production sector, will be held from 14 to 16 January 2014 at the Angers Exhibition Ground (Western France).
  • (1888PressRelease) November 19, 2013 - The addition of 1,000m² of surface area at this year's event will allow approximately 600 exhibitors to showcase a comprehensive range of equipment, agricultural supplies and services to more than 20,000 visitors.

    Organized by Angers Expo Congrès for the past 25 years, SIVAL takes place in Angers (North-Western France), at the heart of the leading crop-production region. The SIVAL trade show will be held from 14 to 16 January 2014 as part of Plants Week 2014, which brings together VégéConso, VEGEPOLYS Symposium and new event ITEIPMAI/ASTREDHOR.

    As a landmark European trade show, SIVAL has embarked upon international expansion and, in cooperation with its partner UBIFRANCE, has invited foreign delegations of purchasers, sector managers, operating managers etc. - predominantly from Algeria, Italy, Poland, Russia, Spain and the United Kingdom - to take part in the 2014 event.

    SIVAL has also recently signed an international business agreement via the European Enterprise Network (EEN). Accordingly, exhibitors and visitors alike may now set up meetings with potential qualified partners before the trade show.

    Each year, the SIVAL Organising Committee punctuates the three days of the trade show with symposiums and technical discussions on a range of subjects. Some of the themes on the agenda for the 2014 event include 'Management of the vine's hydric regime' (Euroviti Symposium), 'Stimulation of the plant's defences in vegetable crops. Results of the Defileg project' (CTIFL Légumes technical discussion), 'Competition distortions and extra-regulatory requirements in the European and international trade of Fruits and Vegetables' (Coop de France Conference) and 'The keys to a successful organic arboriculture: innovative solutions and search for alternatives' (Regional Chamber of Agriculture).

    The high point of the trade show will be the VEGEPOLYS Symposium entitled 'The protection of tomorrow's pip-fruit orchard: French and international avenues of action for pre- and post-harvest', which will take place on the afternoon of Tuesday 14 January.

    SIVAL is the only French trade show that caters to the entire crop-production industry, with 600 exhibitors (10% of them from outside France), representing 1,500 brands. As the leading event for fruit and vegetable production, particularly with regard to the representation of seed producers, plant suppliers and nursery owners, SIVAL welcomes more than 20,000 professionals each year.
