Over the space of three days, the show recorded nearly 58,000 entries: an increase on the last show in 2017. This new edition, whose vitality and variety were acknowledged by exhibitors and visitors alike, gave attendees a chance to discover the latest innovations, engage with professionals from all over the world and obtain tangible responses in view of the strategic challenges facing each of the three sectors.
With 1,100 exhibitors from 25 countries (including 186 newcomers compared with 2017) and a 23% increase in the number of international exhibitors, SITEVI 2019 further reinforced its international reach. The same trend was observed regarding visitors. This year’s show welcomed people from 73 foreign countries (as against 65 in 2017), providing evidence of the appeal and variety of the show’s product and service offering.
The innovation capabilities of players from all three sectors was showcased during the show through the SITEVI Innovation Awards, the Innovation Trail and the 300 new products presented by exhibitors. Moreover, SITEVI was at the centre of the latest developments with the launch of the European project Up2DIVA by Agri Sud Ouest Innovation (a programme to accelerate innovation processes and the deployment of digital solutions developed by SMEs) and the Mas Numérique, by Montpellier SupAgro and INRA.
