EQUIP AUTO 2017 visitor trails

Published on by Jennifer ABIJABER - updated on

Supported by massive support from trade bodies*, associated with the FIEV and the FFC, the 100% Business drive of EQUIP AUTO 2017 has been designed around four main themes expressed by sector professionals:

  • Profitably maintain the existing vehicle fleet;
  • Adapt workshops in a market transformed by digital technology and technological development in vehicles;
  • Prepare for the arrival in workshops of connected and subsequently autonomous vehicles;
  • Diversify repair shop business activities.

These themes were validated and further developed by a working process which involved trade bodies, OEMs, industry experts, workshops and their suppliers through targeted and qualitative surveys.

EQUIP AUTO intends to reward these expectations with concrete answers, based on these four main subjects, thanks to a new organisation:

7 themed and on-demand visitor trails will lead visitors to stands depending on their interests:

"Best of" New Tech: 
new engines / pollutant emission reductions


"Best of" Diag:
diagnostics of the future / connected vehicles


"Best of" My Expertise:

"Best of" My Connected Garage:

"Best of" My Eco-garage:
