The qualified public included CEOs from producing and exporting agro-industrial companies, inputs and equipment, technicians, producers, purchase managers, researchers, among others. They visited over 100 exhibiting companies such as slaughtering, processing and exporting companies, equipment, biological inputs, pharmaceutical companies and others that are part of the production chain.
“The recipe for the success is innovation. We create pioneering initiatives and consolidate partnerships that made this the most important poultry and pig event in the country”, highlights the Executive President of ABPA, Francsico Turra.

In the congress rooms, 1.5 thousand spectators took part in debates and conferences that brought 76 speakers to the event from European countries and from countries in the Americas. “Full rooms every day of the event made it clear that we have accomplished our mission. We have invested heavily in bringing specialists and with this number of panelists we confirm our status as the country’s biggest technical and economic poultry and pig breeding event in Brazil” explained Ariel Mendes, Production Director of ABPA and Coordinator of Programming and Seminars. According to José Perboyre, Finance and Administrative Director of ABPA and Coordinator of the SIAVS event, engagement by partners from the most varied segments – of associated entities, of the sector’s media, government organizations and others – was of great importance for the success of the event. “For our next edition scheduled to take place from the 29th to the 31st of August 2017, exhibitors have only one request: to increase the size of the exhibition area. Companies that were not able to participate in this edition have confirmed interest and this affirms that 2017 will be even larger and more expressive, said Perboyre.
