Sommet De L'elevage 2020 cancelled

Worsening public health conditions linked to the Covid-19 epidemic in France have led to the 29th edition of Sommet De L'elevage 2020 being cancelled.

Local authorities of the Puy-de-Dôme department can no longer agree to 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 event was due to be held on the 7, 8 and 9 October 2020.
