Discover the SIA'TTITUDE: the commitment of the International Agricultural Show to a more responsible event, respectful of the environment, community living, and animal welfare.

A major show, major responsibilities: the Paris International Agricultural Show calls for collective action


Every year, France's leading agricultural show unfurls its 16 hectares at Porte de Versailles. Thanks to the commitment of 2,000 professionals, an ephemeral city emerges for 9 days, welcoming more than 600,000 visitors, 4,000 animals and 1,000 exhibitors.

The Paris International Agricultural Show is a large-scale event and a key player in society, conscious of its social, societal and environmental impact.

Its scale and influence are incomparable, and so are its responsibilities.

Embracing the SIA'ttitude means saying...

YES to living well together

A celebration is only beautiful if all its participants feel comfortable. Remaining attentive to others' comfort, promoting kind and constructive exchanges, exercising restraint and responsibility when consuming alcohol - these are all individual steps that will contribute to the success of this gathering. The Paris International Agricultural Show is a friendly, warm, and popular event, and it aims to remain so. Each person's enjoyment depends on respecting the tranquility of all those who participate in and experience the Salon.

Reducing paper usage, sorting and recycling waste, using more ethical goodies, combating food waste... For several years now, the Paris International Agricultural Show has been adopting more virtuous practices. 

With each new edition, the Show takes a step forward.

Embracing the SIA'TTITUDE

As a visitor to the Paris International Agricultural Show, I pledge to join you by adopting the right behaviors during my visit! 

  • I will present my e-ticket directly on my smartphone at the entrances. 
  • I will travel to the show using public transportation, by bike, or on foot. 
  • I will maintain a respectful distance from the animals for their well-being and respect their tranquility. 
  • I will sort my waste at the show by putting plastic bottles, cans, cardboard trays, and cutlery in the yellow bins, and cigarette butts in the ashtrays available throughout the park. 
  • I will respect the physical integrity of others, as well as the equipment and property of third parties. 
  • When I engage in conversation with an exhibitor or a breeder, I will do so in a constructive and positive manner. 
  • If I consume alcohol on-site, I will do so in moderation.
