The right place for agriculture diversity
Sima is trying more and more to focus on gathering together the diversities of the agricultural context, making it possible through the promotion of events such as: “Sima African summit”, an international convention dedicated to a developing market such as the african one; “Sima Dealer’s Day”, that gathers dealers from all over the world; “Tavole rotonde internazionali” (literally, “International round tables”), dedicated to the big challanges of the agricultural world (agronomy, biological agriculture, …); “Start-up villages”, place of inspiration based on new digital solutions and “Simagena”, the european appointment for bovine genetics.
Sima wants to pull the world together
For the edition of this year, the organizers of the event intensified their efforts to expand the global network that currently counts 47 offices around the world, and to attract people from over 90 countries, mainly focusing on East Europe and Latin America.
Frédéric Martin, President of Axema and Sima, said: «Sima 2019 is an open door on the world. It’s an opportunity for all the professional of the agricultural sector to discover an always wider choice of machineries and technologies. The opportunity for exhibitors to meet agricultural operators from all over the world that are experts in all kinds of different farming techniques. I believe that we now have all the elements to announce, already, the success of Sima 2019».
