SPACE 2021 – A long awaited edition!
The 35th SPACE will be held from Tuesday 14 to Thursday 16 September at the Rennes Exhibition Centre, in France. The three day in-person expo will be followed by a virtual day on Friday 17 September. SPACE is inaugurating a new format after a year without a physical expo.
A unique opportunity to finally meet up and reconnect with all the businesses involved in the food chain.
100 days from the opening of the Show, we present to you the content of this next edition and the sanitary framework in which we will hold it, in reference to the sanitary protocol imposed on us to make this event a major professional meeting, both friendly and secure for everyone.
Here are the main themes approached during this conference and detailed in the press pack:
The health situation
The health context is evolving favorably and now allows us to organize this major event while guaranteeing the health and safety of everyone who will be present on the site. We will have to impose health protocols and the participants will need to show a health pass. This pass requires either:
- A vaccination certificate.
- A proof of a negative RT-PCR or antigenic test dating back less than 48 hours.
- The result of a positive RT-PCR or antigenic test attesting your recovery from Covid, dating from at least 15 days and less than 6 months.
The exhibitors feel confident and will be there. Almost 80% of them are registered this year, including nearly 100 new ones. It is urgent for them to organize physical meetings with their partners and customers.
“Animal Welfare and Farmer Well-being” will be the theme this year
Food for thought, practical solutions, equipment demonstrations… will be proposed about animal welfare and also farmer well-being. We will approched this theme specifically for each sector. There will also be one debate per day and per type of livestock.
Innovations discovery is the main motivation of our visitors. This year again, SPACE will be the showcase of the constantly evolving world of breeding. The Innov’Space 2020 winners will also be able to promote their products for the first time physically since they were unable to do so last year.
A full and varied program and online exclusives
SPACE is also the Technical Knowledge Show, driven by the wealth of its conferences. This year, the issues will deal with animal feed, breeding practices, international and environmental issues… exclusive webinars will be revealed on the occasion of the digital day on Friday.
Competitions, animal presentations and Auction
This year, we are offering a new 3-day program with competitions of different cattle breeds (in the spotlight: Rouge des Prés, Normand, Holstein), sheep (Bleu du Maine in the spotlight) and goats. A European challenge in the Simmental breed will also take place, as well as the international auction, unique in Europe, on site and online.
Stay in touch with agricultural news, even remotely, with our monthly podcast series “the voice of farming”, translated into English. From Friday 17 September, we will broadcast farm visits videos to make up for the lack of face-to-face visits.
The SPACE team is doing everything possible to make this 35th SPACE a major professional meeting for all animal productions where we will be able once again to share moments of business and conviviality, while respecting health rules.
