SIVAL ANGERS: Plant production trade show

Under the presidency of Bruno Dupont, the Organizing Committee of SIVAL is composed of Vegepolys, technical agencies and speciality crop professionals.
SIVAL is one of the highlights of VEGEPOLYS VALLEY and the region, and the only event in which the entire cluster comes together to discuss their production problems.
Organised by Destination Angers, a brand name created by ALTEC (Angers Loire Tourisme Expo Congrès - a Local Public Company) whose two equal shareholders are the Municipality of Angers and Angers Loire Métropole (Greater Angers), SIVAL supports the development of the plant production industry.

  • Raising awareness of our entire ecosystem (partners, service providers, exhibitors, visitors) to this approach, which must be collective.

 

SIVAL - AGTECH

It offers concrete answers for a connected and precision agriculture, for robotics, data, AI issues as well as for alternate production methods.

 

SIVAL - International

Internationalisation has been for many years, one of the main development strategies of the Exhibition. SIVAL hosts around 1,000 foreign visitors (from 55 countries) and 12% foreign exhibitors.

 

In order to support this internationalisation, SIVAL is carrying different actions, notably in the following areas:

  • the organisation of VIBE with VEGEPOLYS VALLEY  - the international business meeting – (208 B to B meetings in 2022)
  • hosting of international delegations (buyers with a targeted profil from Portugal, Italy, Romania, Poland, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Kazakhstan, Spain, Finland and Sweden in 2022)
  • foreign speakers and experts for the Exhibition Conference
  • the organisation of Fruit 2050, the prospective event dedicated to the professionals of the European fruit industry and dealing with the future of fruit crops.

 

SIVAL is supporting employment in the plant industry

Our job centre is opened all along the exhibition and job dating sessions are organised. Thanks to our partnership with APECITA and AREFA, SIVAL puts recruiting companies and job seekers into contact, the latter thus receiving support in their looking for a job as well as customised advice.
