To shine a spotlight on solutions and technologies to achieve high-performance and sustainable agriculture, SIMA creates SIMA TECH!

SIMA TECH: above all, a place for meetings and dialogue at the centre of the show

Here, you will find tangible solutions to today’s agricultural challenges, but also the technologies and practices of tomorrow.

To bring this space to life, SIMA has teamed up with organisations specialising in a range of domains: technical institutes, the world of research, user and manufacturer associations, chambers of agriculture, machine builders, etc.

4 major subjects faced by famers today will be highlighted:

  • Reducing plant protection products: the health of plants and people
  • Carbon footprint of crop and livestock farming
  • More comfortable working conditions, task simplification and workplace safety
  • Assessment and control of economic and environmental performance

These will be addressed through a series of talks, workshops and meetings but also through a unique offering of solutions.

A shared zone at the heart of the show

Located in hall 6, SIMA TECH will comprise:

  • A central area devoted to talks, workshops and networking
  • Start-ups
  • Manufacturers of agricultural robots
  • A pitch and discussion area dedicated to start-ups and the offering in robotics
  • Foresight content

Among the area’s active participants: AXEMA, GOFAR, La Ferme Digitale, INRAE, ACTA, APCA, UIPP, GNIS, UFS, IBMA, RobAgri, Naïo, Claas, Sulky, Exxact Robotics, Kubota, CarbonBee, Sitia…

Further information coming soon on the 4 themes addressed (talk and workshop programme) and on the start-up and robotics zones: consult our website under the Events section.

Start-up Village

Designed as a special show feature, the Start-Up Village will be located in Hall 6 at the heart of the SIMA TECH zone. The friendly Start-Up Village is a real springboard to help young businesses get noticed alongside the big names. For this new edition, 70 companies will be gathered! 

Moreover, product pitches and workshops about agriculture today’s challenges will be held every day in a dedicated conference area (agenda to be released soon).

The SIMA Start-Up Village is organized in partnership with La Ferme DigitaleAgri Sud-Ouest Innovation et Co-Farming. This association aim of promoting innovation and digital technology for efficient, sustainable agriculture.

A village dedicated to the development of robotics in agriculture

Located in the SIMA TECH area, the heart of the new technology and precision farming sector (hall 6), this village will shine a light on the development of robotics in agriculture by bringing together a unique offering.

In this venue conducive to exchange and interaction, manufacturers will also benefit from the pitch stage in the SIMA TECH area to present their own robots. All this will be presented and hosted by GOFAR experts.

The agricultural robotics village by FIRA also includes a series of talks, jointly curated with GOFAR. In a dedicated lecture room, every day, come and join in with round tables and workshops dealing with the development of robotics in farming:

  • Agricultural robots: the new agricultural revolution?
  • Robots in the field: now a reality!
  • Robots to alleviate the tough working conditions of farmers
  • Agricultural robotics for the benefit of row crops
  • Robots to reduce (or eliminate) the use of chemical products
  • Agricultural robotics for the benefit of viticulture
  • Agricultural robotics: my job is changing. What consequences and what support?
  • Agricultural robotics for the benefit of fruit and vegetables.
  • Agricultural robotics for the benefit of livestock
  • Product pitches by robot manufacturers.

Speakers from all over the world will come to share their experience and vision of agricultural robotics, also offering an opportunity for dialogue, as these round tables and workshops aim to be as interactive as possible.

Detailed programme coming later.
