SPACE 2023 from 12 to 14 September

A new sector at SPACE: aquaculture

Aquaculture at SPACE

Aquaculture is a fast-growing sector on a global scale and attracts an increasing number of visitors to the Show. SPACE has been hosting conferences on aquaculture for several years.

The Show wishes to assert itself on the international scene as a must-attend event for players in the aquaculture sector.

The place of aquaculture at SPACE

In 2022, SPACE will feature again a specific program for the aquaculture sector.

The objective is to enable exhibitors and visitors interested in this theme to meet and exchange ideas, and to meet French and international stakeholders’ expectations and issues.

One of the strengths of SPACE is to bring together exhibitors working in a wide variety of animal production sectors. From nutrition to genetics and equipment, these companies are increasingly developing specific solutions for aquaculture.

Each year, SPACE edits a special aquaculture directory listing nearly 100 companies in sector.
Booths will be identified thanks to a specific sign.
