SIMA, THE EUROPEAN SHOWCASE FOR THE THIRD AGRICULTURAL REVOLUTION!
In these times of profound change, reconciling economic and environmental performance is a real challenge for all farmers. Thats why SIMA exists to help them find the solutions to their own particular needs. And this year, it has a new angle. As its 100th birthday draws near, SIMA has a new identity and new dates for its new aim. It has also made changes to its classification system and expanded its content to more effectively highlight excellence, expertise and innovation.
LEADING COMPANIES UNITED AROUND THE SHOWS NEW AIMS
SIMAs new aims are popular among exhibitors from Axema and other major companies attending the show. Indeed, these changes are exactly what exhibitors and international visitors said that they wanted to see, and they establish the show more coherently within the framework of the business decision-making cycle. Even though the show is more than a year away, many leading companies have already confirmed their intention to attend, including Amazone SA, Berthoud, Claas France, Dangreville, Holmer Exxact, Horsch France, JCB Agri, Jeantil, John Deere, Krone France SAS, Kubota Europe SAS, Kuhn, Lemken France SARL, MX, Rolland, Ropa France, Samson Agro Sasu, SAS Capagri, Sulky Burel and Weidemann GMBH.
OVERHAULED CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM AND EXPANDED CONTENT
To reflect the show’s new angle, it has adopted a classification system, providing visitors with a more complete offering and presenting all the solutions so as to more effectively meet the needs of farmers today. The solutions of the future will form part of a transversal vision of the market. It is for this reason that SIMA is evolving from a show all about farming machinery into a show for technologies used in farming and live-stock rearing. In fact, the keyword for the show this year is «expertise»: there is even more content and even more emphasis on innovations from across the whole agricultural sector and from all over the world.
This content will be dispersed across the shows various strategic areas: • Employment and training, with a job-dating area where recruiters and future employees will be able to meet and discuss recruitment options (internships, apprenticeship contracts or actual hiring) an «Experience» area featuring simulators, escape games and numerous conferences designed to encourage the sharing of experiences… and a training area open to stakeholders from all over the sector (schools, universities, the ministry, etc.) with presentations of all of the professions making up the sector and portraits of various jobs (construction, distribution, agriculture, etc.); • Innovation, including Innovation village an area that both anticipates and deals with farmers and manufacturers current needs, the Start-up Village (with the Ferme Digitale), a springboard for nurturing around fifty young companies and the robotic village (with the FIRA), an area for demonstrating the very latest agricultural robots and a pitching area in which everyone can showcase their expertise; • International conferences dealing with the themes underpinning the various challenges that SIMA seeks to take up (augmented agriculture, robotics, agronomics, organic farming, agricultural equipment and agro-ecology,co-farming, managing climate variations, Dealers day, SIMA African Summit, livestock-rearing, etc.). • An exclusive partnership with the FIRA, which will be unveiled over the course of two days of discussion and conferences in the presence of some of the major international players from the world of robotics.
