The 29th SPACE expo will be held at the Rennes Exhibition Centre in Rennes, France, from September 15-18.

In the past three years, SPACE has seen steady growth; as of May 4, there were 1,257 exhibitors registered for the event, more than at the same time last year. There are 392 foreign exhibitors from 32 countries, and there are 20 more new exhibitors registered than at the same time last year.

This year's theme is, "My Connected Farm - Performance at my fingertips," presenting the ways digital technology can be used in the livestock industry. The target objectives are to improve farm performance, working conditions for farmers and employees, and animal welfare while reducing the use of inputs. The ongoing search for ways to improve farm management is also the topic of many seminars and conferences organized during SPACE.
