SOMMET 2020 confirmed for October
A recent decree allowing exhibition centers in France to host events (fairs and exhibitions) from September 1, without limiting the number of visitors was published on July 27 and organizers of Sommet de L'Elevage decide to announce the date of this year's event: 7-9 October 2020. In addition, the State services (Puy-de-Dôme prefecture) approved a sanitary plan, drawn up jointly with the fair-grounds manager. This plan includes commitments in terms of disinfection of spaces, hydro-alcoholic gel distribution and face mask use.
"To date, we have reached more than 90% of last year's commercial volume: 1,380 exhibitors on 870 stands, for a total of 78,733 sqm. Regarding competitions and animal presentations, the usual 1,200 breeder-exhibitors responded.
Regarding visitors, a survey was carried out in collaboration with the REUSSIR press group. It tells us that more than 75% of visitors from last year intend to come over," stated the organizers in a press release.
