More than ever in tune with the current concerns of the farming world, the next edition of SIMA will pursue its initiatives alongside the sector and offer an all-round perspective on themes of major importance: from organic farming to AgTech and from agronomy to livestock. A wide range of subjects through which to showcase the performance of all forms of agriculture.
Meeting current and future challenges
SIMA is positioned as the worthwhile meeting for the sector’s players to address economic, climate, environmental and demographic challenges. In this respect, the Agrosupplies Village has been created this year, bringing together the sector of seeds, fertilisers and crop protection. 2019 will also feature the debut for a special Livestock Day, echoing SIMAGENA, acknowledged for the diversity of its cattle and its genetics hub.
In addition, the exhibition is repeating the major events such as the SIMA African Summit, an international conference addressing a theme in connection with this continent’s most topical developments; SIMA Dealers’ Day, bringing together distributors from around the world, and talks and round tables organised in association with AXEMA on a wide range of subjects (organic farming, connected farming, agronomy, etc.).
SIMA, revealing innovation from the farming world
One of SIMA’s most distinctive features is innovation, which will once again be at the heart of the 2019 show, with the second edition of the Start-Up Village, even bigger and more international than the first. The Innovation Village, meanwhile, will host the Foresight Forum and its video wall, the Innovation Gallery, the showcase for the SIMA Innovation Awards and their innovative or futuristic agricultural machinery and services, and profiles of innovative farmers from France and around the world.
An international venue for exchange and business
At its last edition, SIMA welcomed visitors from 135 countries, making the exhibition a reference for all farmers. Looking towards 2019, this show is stepping up its promotional actions through its international network of 47 offices and an active visitor recruitment campaign in more than 90 countries, in particular in Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela) and in Eastern Europe (Ukraine, Russia).
Through an intensive digital strategy, in particular with its new Instagram account @sima_worldwide, SIMA will offer a platform to everyone around the world who makes this exhibition such an imperative international meeting for the farming sector: manufacturers, distributors, dealers, farmers, breeders, partners, etc.
