On the visitors side, the amount of visits can only be measured directly at the Show. Nevertheless, it is reasonable to think that the 100 000 visitors gap will be reached this year again.
15 000 international visitors from 120 countries also are expected at the SPACE which will be the only global event of 2017 for the professionals of animal production. 57% of these visitors were first-time attendees last year, proof of the shows' capacity to freshen its visitors base and to regroup professionals from all around the world.
Thus, delegations from Algeria, Canada, Iran, Russia, Ukraine... are expected at the 31st edition of the Show.
After a strong mobilization of West Africa in 2016, the economical and institutional operators of this zone should be at the Show this year again.
