Paris International Agricultural Show (French: Salon International de l'Agriculture, or SIA) is an annual agricultural exposition and fair, that takes place end of February or beginning of March at the Porte de Versailles in Paris, France. It is one of the world’s largest and most important agricultural shows, drawing larger crowds than any other exposition in Paris except the Foire de Paris.

History[edit]

This event was first held in 1870[1] as the Concours général agricole (CGA), its name changed in 1964,[2] but the Concours still exists and is one of the main attractions of the fair.
