New dates for SIMA show
The next SIMA agricultural trade show will take place in February 2021 rather than in November 2020, as originally planned. The organisers rescheduled the Paris-based fair to 21-25 February 2021 “at the request of a large number of exhibitors and organisations from the agricultural machinery industry whose production and distribution activities have been hit hard by today’s public health and economic crisis.”
This year’s show was to be the first ‘reinvented’ SIMA, a repositioned event for a changing agricultural segment. “In view of the current environment and despite the healthy state of stand space sales recorded to date for the new SIMA, many of SIMA’s exhibitors and partners have requested that the show maintain its historical dates for the next event,” share organisers Comexposium and agricultural equipment trade association Axema. “This decision comes in response to the expectations voiced and in support of all the actors of the farming world who are today having to deal with an upheaval in their production and distribution cycles. In February 2021, SIMA will provide a major opportunity for the sector to regroup and gather together all of its members so as to rekindle the economic activity of the industry.”
The organisers stress that this rescheduling is a one-off, with SIMA then taking place in its centenary year, 2022 (6 to 10 November).
