With nearly 100 days to go before its 2022 edition opens, EQUIP AUTO Paris, the trade event for innovation in automotive aftersales and services for connected mobility, has announced that 95 percent of its 80,000 sqm surface area, has been reserved by exhibitors.
At its mid-year press conference in France bringing together partners and the media to unveil its agenda, the tradeshow EQUIP AUTO Paris 2022 confirmed the sale of nearly all its available exhibition space and reiterated its forecast for around 1,000 exhibitors and brands on show and an expected 80,000 professionals in attendance at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles from Oct. 18-22.
Event organizers say features such as major European forums, an experiential demonstrator, theme villages, awards and other highlights all played a key part in winning over a great many exhibitors, 35% of them first-timers and 25% from outside France.
Philippe Baudin, chairman of EQUIP AUTO, said, “We are delighted with the way this 26th edition of EQUIP AUTO Paris has been received. The feedback from exhibitors on the program is very encouraging and confirms the choices we have made with a view to bringing together a wide range of players, representative of what our automotive and mobility industry is today and will be tomorrow. While a GiPA survey confirms that recruitment is the main concern of repairers for the next two years, and another one by the FIEV, conducted for EQUIP AUTO Paris, underlines the resilience of the aftermarket with 14 billion euros sales expected between now and 2030, EQUIP AUTO Paris had to devise a rich, comprehensive program of content that would be conducive to the business of its professional audiences. Today, there is no doubt that this program has hit the mark, given the presence of historic players and new market entrants, thus confirming EQUIP AUTO Paris’ status as a 100% business exhibition and contributing to making it a structural pillar of Paris Automotive Week.”
