Special focus: tribute to Jean-Michel LEMETAYER

The 27th edition pays homage to one of its co-founder. Jean-Michel LEMETAYER died suddenly one month before the Show. "He was the soul of SPACE and nurtured the ambition that it would be of service to breeders and agriculture in general", said Paul KERDRAON, Exhibition Manager and long-time friend. 

His loss is keenly felt, but is also a challenge for the whole team: 'to continue on the same path and extend its reach so that the Show is more professional, more international and more convivial". 

A new building, hosting the press center and the VIP restaurant, has been named the Jean-Michel Lemétayer Rooms in honor.
