PARIS: The next edition of SIMA, the global trade show for suppliers to agriculture and livestock farming, will be held from  26 February to 2 March  2017 at the Paris-Nord  Villepinte  exhibition  centre.  This 77th edition has attracted the highest ever participation from Indian exhibitors of agricultural machinery, implements and spare parts.

Indian companies showcasing their products at the next SIMA include ATG, Beri Udyog, BKT, Captain Tractors,  International  Tractors  Ltd (Sonalika),  JCBL  India  Pvt ltd,  Kartar  Agro,  KRM  tyres,  Malhotra Rubbers Ltd, Preet Tractors, Speedway Rubber Company, Tech Auto Pvt Ltd and Tirth Agro Technology Pvt Ltd (Shaktiman).  Clearly, Indian companies  are increasingly  using SIMA as a platform to promote their products to French and European buyers, as well as visitors from francophone Africa.

SIMA continues  to assert its vocation  as the international  exhibition  for all of the technologies  and solutions for high-performance and sustainable agriculture in all its forms.


SIMA continues to attract exhibitors from a wide range of countries. This increased international contingent is illustrated  by the arrival of new participants,  most notably exhibitors  from Korea,  China and India, but also from Turkey  and North America.  1 770 companies  are expected  to participate  from 42 countries,  with 8% more foreign exhibitors than 2015 edition across 13 exhibition sectors.


At a time when the international agriculture sector is facing major challenges, this SIMA exhibition will mobilize  all sector  professionals  in France  and internationally.  In addition,  the entire exhibition  will focus on specific solutions to the concerns  that farming is currently  facing. It will be positioned  as a contact facilitating tool between sector stakeholders with major events such as the SIMA Dealer’s Day- ting and the SIMA African Summit.


Innovation will again be central to this SIMA exhibition.  The 2017 topic, “Being a farmer in 10 years” will  provide  a  comprehensive   overview  of  the  farming  world  with  contributions   from  all  areas, including   beyond   the   farming   environment:   Aerospace   Valley,   the  French   Atomic   Energy   and Alternative Energy Commission (CEA), Engineering schools from six countries, and more.

The SIMA 2017 exhibition  will be innovative  in more  ways than one, in particular  with the Start-up Village, bringing together young companies from the digital world; API-AGRO Hackathon:  48 hours to create innovative agricultural applications; the Agreen’Startup,  the startup competition for reinventing farming; and numerous innovations presented by its exhibitors. 600 new products are to be discovered at the exhibition and over 120 applications for the SIMA Innovation Awards: initiatives that prove the determination of an entire sector to innovate to stand out.
