[Luxus Magazine] Salon de l’Agriculture 2024: a 60th edition at the heart of the agricultural political crisis

From February 24 to March 3, the Agriculture Fair will allow actors from the agricultural world to meet the general public at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. As the government tries to ease the agricultural crisis, numerous activities are planned. An exclusive area for professionals, a hackathon with Mistral AI, a photo retrospective, and other new features are planned to celebrate the 60th edition of the Fair.


The International Agriculture Show (SIA) will take over the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles from February 24 to March 3.


More than 1000 exhibitors from 30 countries will gather. Each year, in addition to about a hundred protocol visitors, traditionally including the President of the Republic, 1% of the French population (around 600,000 visitors) attend the event. Given the recent demands of farmers, the Fair promises to be eventful. To soothe tensions, Prime Minister Gabriel Attal spoke at a press conference on Wednesday, February 21, accompanied by the Minister of Economy and Agriculture.


At this new SIA, 4,000 animals, representing 378 different breeds, including some quite exotic ones such as the Asian yak, the zebu, or the camel, will set foot in Paris. During this annual meeting between the agricultural sector actors and the population, 390 events will be held, including demonstrations, contests, and of course, what everyone looks forward to, tastings.



A team of “dehydrators” will wander the halls to ensure hydration (with free water) of visitors to absorb the alcohol consumed and prevent excesses.
