SIVAL 2019 kicked off today in France and will continue till 17th January. With almost 640 exhibitors and 24000 visitors yearly in Angers, SIVAL is the only trade exhibition in France that presents a comprehensive and impressive offering of equipment and services for all plant productions including horticulture, arboriculture, viticulture, vegetable crops, seeds, mushrooms, tobacco and medicinal plants.

SIVAL is a key professional platform featuring:

  1. Top agricultural machinery manufacturers.

  2. Inclusive multi-sector offering - Tillage, plant protection products, packaging etc.

  3. An invincible offering in France for Fruit and Vegetables. SIVAL boasts the biggest representation of seed companies, seedling suppliers and nurseries.

  4. An offering that deals with agricultural issues of tomorrow like laboratories, waste management etc.

  5. A varied and impressive offering for viticulture

  6. A unique offering for medicinal and aromatic plants and cider production.

Since its inception, the SIVAL has always aimed to be the show for novelty in specialist plant production. The 33rd edition will not be differing from this target. Its traditional Sival Innovation Concours and more recently the Agreen Startup Concours have been great successes and are now its figureheads. They are proof of how dynamic the sector is, and the willingness of its members to open up new possibilities. Equally they are part of the AGTech trend in which the SIVAL and the members in its region are all heavily involved.
