The SIVAL brings together everyone who counts from the world of horticulture, viticulture, arboriculture and vegetable growing. It is the leading trade fair for specialty crops in France and the best place where producers (plant raisers, growers etc…) come to find the keys to their future success. Alongside this the show is a huge platform for communication and a forum for exchanging ideas.
Germains had the pleasure of attending this year’s SIVAL show which takes place annually in Angers, the heart of the seeds industry in France.
From the 16th – 18th January 2018, 620 exhibitors and 22,800 professional visitors, gathered to visit the only trade show in France that presents a comprehensive and impressive offering of equipment and services for all plant productions: viticulture, oenology, horticulture, arboriculture, vegetable crops, seeds, medicinal and aromatic plants.
This year provided an opportunity for Christophe Clement, European Business Development Manager at Germains, to meet with multiple key accounts and gather useful information related to market trends and new technologies. These opportunities are valuable to gain insight and become an active member of the seed industry community.
SIVAL is a key professional showcase featuring:
- an unbeatable offering in France for Fruit and Vegetables: SIVAL boasts the largest representation of seed companies, seedling suppliers and nurseries.
- leading agricultural machinery manufacturers.
- a complete multi-sector offering: plant protection products, packaging, and more.
- an offering that addresses the agricultural issues of tomorrow: laboratories, waste management/recycling, organic products, etc.
This show is one of the highlights of Vegepolys and the region Pays de la Loire , and the only event in which the entire cluster comes together to discuss their production problems. Following the success of the SIVAL trade show Germains will be attending Fruit Logistica from 7th to 9th February in Berlin. Click here to find out more about the event.
