The 2022 edition of the International Poultry and Pig Farming Exhibition (SIAVS) ended with records, the largest event of the sectors in Brazil, held by the Brazilian Animal Protein Association (ABPA) between August 9 and 11, at Anhembi Parque, in São Paulo ( SP).

After the opening, a wide program of lectures and debates began, with the theme “Sustainable Production: Paths to Global Food Security”. In all, 2,300 delegates and 80 speakers participated in the technical and conjunctural topics. Among the highlights was the panel of CEOS, with agribusiness leaders in the sector, in a debate on the direction of the production chain. Other panels on future projections for animal protein, competitiveness, crisis management, logistics, technical issues on antimicrobials, salmonellosis and others were on the agenda.
With an area 30% larger, the SIAVS had around 200 exhibitors of equipment, biological and pharmaceutical inputs, animal feed and other suppliers from different areas of the production chain, which exhibited in more than 20 thousand square meters, their technologies and products aimed at the production of animal protein.
With SIAVS Multiproteínas, more than 40 agribusinesses producing poultry, swine, cattle, dairy, buffalo and farmed fish did business with importers and representatives of the national retail who were present.
Large equipment companies for the sector, genetic houses, laboratories, animal feed and service providers participated in the fair, together with purchasing decision makers from slaughterhouses, integrated and independent producers from agribusinesses, importers of target markets for proteins from Brazil, wholesale and retail, among others.
SIAVS 2022 also had the participation of Banco do Brasil and Caixa Econômica Federal. With special credit lines for the agro public, financial institutions took itinerant units, which were parked in the middle of the fair.
In all, 21,000 visitors from 53 countries attended the event – the highest number ever recorded. Through the Producer Project, there were 1,900 integrated poultry and swine farmers from the various production poles.
Focused on innovation and promotion of new opportunities, SIAVS brought in this edition exclusive attractions, such as Siavs Talks, an unprecedented initiative at the event that brought together business incubators, research institutions and academics, as well as entrepreneurs from the sector in an exclusive space with presentations inspired by the TED format, in the midst of commercial exposure.
It also featured the Siavs Experience, an immersion in the production chain with an area of more than 70 square meters destined exclusively for the experience with giant LED screens in a labyrinth with mirror games, in addition to a room with mapped projection that promoted an illusion of optics in 3 dimensions. The experience became complete with sound and the smell of the forest, which was strategically released by odorizers scattered throughout the space.
At the end, the president of ABPA, Ricardo Santin, celebrated the resumption of the event: “A great success! The resumption of SIAVS was the consecration of a sector that did not miss food on the table of Brazilians after one of the most difficult periods in the history of humanity. And we went further, we debated how to meet a growing global demand, ensuring sustainable production and preserving natural resources. We broke records for participation in the event and also in the production and export of poultry, pork and eggs, but, above all, we reinforced the importance of Brazil to support the planet’s food security,” he concluded.
The next edition of SIAVS already has a date: it will take place between the 6th and 08th of August, in the Anhembi District, in São Paulo (SP). Follow the news about the event on the website www.siavs.com.br.
