The local authorities of the Puy-de-Dôme department has informed the organisers of the SOMMET DE L’ELEVAGE that in light of the worsening public health conditions linked to the COVID-19 epidemic in France, they can no longer agree the derogation that would have allowed the show’s organisers to disrespect the maximum limit of 5,000 visitors/day present on an exhibition (as announced by the Prime Minister on the 11 August).
The organisers are, as a result, obliged to cancel the 29th edition of the SOMMET DE L’ELEVAGE that was due to be held on the 7, 8 and 9 October 2020. Unable to welcome the 30,000 visitors/day that underpin the show’s success, it is with the greatest regret that they are obliged to take this important decision.
The show’s organisers would like to particularly thank all exhibitors, who, like the organisers themselves, had believed until today’s announcement that the SOMMET DE L’ELEVAGE had its place in the government’s desire to relaunch the French economy. The SOMMET would also like to thank its partners and visitors for their understanding and support at this time of solidarity and individual responsibility.
The show’s organisers are already hard at work on a special edition of the SOMMET for 2021, including:
• The 30th anniversary of the SOMMET
• Open to visitors over 4 days (5 – 8 October 2021)
• Organization of the Aubrac breed National Championships
• Inauguration of a new permanent hall of 10,000 m²
• Reorganization of the show’s outdoor area
Next date: 5-6-7-8 October 2021 in Clermont-Ferrand, France
