SPACE 2020 the international exhibition for Livestock

A new sector at SPACE: aquaculture

SPACE has been hosting conferences on aquaculture for several years. On the strength of this initial success, the Expo now plans to be a key event for French and international businesses in this fast-growing sector, which attracts an increasing number of visitors (9% of international visitors in 2018). 

With this in mind, SPACE 2019 boasts several new features

The objective is to enable exhibitors and visitors interested in this theme to meet and exchange ideas. Many exhibitors have fish and shrimp farming solutions but don’t promote them at SPACE because our Expo is primarily geared toward livestock. In order to make this initiative a success, we plan to target our communication efforts to French and foreign businesses involved in fish farming who are not yet familiar with the Expo.

A special aquaculture catalogue

One of the strengths of SPACE is that it brings together exhibitors working in a wide variety of animal production sectors. These companies are increasingly developing specific solutions for aquaculture, in areas such as nutrition, genetics and equipment. Exhibitors that offer fish farming solutions will be invited to notify us in order to be included in a special catalogue.
This way, visitors interested in fish farming can readily find their stands. A survey carried out last year showed that over one hundred French and foreign exhibitors are likely to be interested in aquaculture.

Two half-day conferences on the theme of aquaculture

Two conferences will be held on Tuesday 10 September to present the latest aquaculture trends and products.

  • The first half-day is organised in partnership with, publishers of the magazines Aquafeed and Hatcheryfeed. This presentation in English will discuss developments in feed used in fish farming. It is intended for international and French visitors interested in exporting.

  • The second conference will be held in French and will address topics related to fish farm management, genetics and the quality of farmed fish.

Aquaculture tours

Western France is home to a wide variety of fish farms, as well as many companies offering solutions for aquaculture. Likewise, there are quite a few businesses specialising in fish and shellfish processing. We are arranging a number of tours focusing on aquaculture.
