SPACE 2021: new dates and a new format


The challenging 2020 confirmed that SPACE is and will remain the key annual event for livestock professionals. The Expo is eagerly awaited and for many of its participants, it marks the beginning of a new year. In 2020 it was sorely missed. SPACE is a unique professional event, focusing on innovation, performance and socialising. The large livestock family meets in Rennes in September, and the reunion is essential for business as well as for morale.

Like farmers who are able to adapt to new conditions, SPACE accelerated its digital transition in 2020, and SPACE now offers you a full range of online services to be able to connect with each other on website or via mobile app all year long. Featuring the list of exhibitors, product descriptions, Innov’Space winners, webinars, podcasts and much more, in our fast-paced digital world, this online version of the Expo is the perfect place to continue meeting up all year round.

Next SPACE fair will take place from 14 to 16 September 2021 at the Rennes Exhibition Centre and Friday the 17th for a special all-digital day.

In order to meet the increasingly strong demand from exhibitors, to keep pace with the growth in the number of visitors starting on the first day of the Expo, and to take into account the increasingly international nature of SPACE, the organizers have decided to switch to a shorter, three-day in-person event from Tuesday 14 to Thursday 16 September. This is the fourth time in the Expo’s history that SPACE dates have been changed to meet the expectations of exhibitors and visitors or due to the national and global situation. Exclusive highlights will be available online on Friday to extend the Expo. The two inseparable facets of SPACE will make the Expo a hybrid, tailored event in keeping with the times, featuring an in-person event and an online presence with resources, content and interactions. Nothing will ever replace the full, live version of the Expo, which immerses participants in SPACE’s unique atmosphere where people do business, network and socialise. SPACE will stay open until 8 p.m on Thursday 16 September, instead of closing at 6 p.m. as it does on the first two days, to allow more time for networking. The new, modified and proactive format will make this key September event even more successful. Registrations for the 35th SPACE open from 20 January 2021.
