France hosts ‘Planet Livestock’

SPACE 2019, held in early September at the Rennes Exhibition Centre in France, brought together 1,400 exhibitors from 42 countries, and 105,318 visitors, including 14,706 international visitors from 122 countries.

International attendance was up 2%, reflecting the global dimension of this edition. Government delegations from Russia, China, Kazakhstan and a handful of African nations also attended.

Under the theme, “Climate-Friendly Practices and Technologies,” the event presented a wide range of pragmatic and financially viable solutions for greenhouse gas reduction, energy production and energy efficient systems in livestock housing.

SPACE opened its doors to aquaculture this year by organising two conferences on the topic and a tour of a fish farm. A special area featuring stands dedicated to fish farming will be set up at SPACE 2020, which will take place Sept 15-18, 2020.
