EQUIP AUTO reinvents itself

Published on by Jennifer ABIJABER - updated on

Rarely have we featured so many new innovations. The 2017 EQUIP AUTO event represents not just a sea change at the heart of central Parisian events, at the Porte de Versailles, but also a reimagining of its entire landscape. Guided tour.

New venue, new halls, new sectors: EQUIP AUTO 2017 casts away the past to write a new page of its history. The concept: a more comprehensive vision than in previous editions, from all automotive aftermarket players. And so each of the three main pavilions, representing almost 100,000 m2 of exhibition space, will have well-defined sectors for each automotive aftersales activity and mobility services.

In Pavilion 1, the biggest area, visitors will meet major players in three essential areas of automotive aftersales. First, the « Bodywork and Paint » area, featuring a village of the same name, organized by the Fédération Française de Carrosserie (FFC), will bring together its members over more than 4000 m².

Then « Networks and services, remarketing and second hand vehicles » will see the return of an area dedicated to used cars, previously launched at EQUIP AUTO in 2015, in order to represent all trades plus new automotive technologies related to the industry: suppliers, insurers, digital companies and growing franchises who are looking for new entrepreneurs.

And finally, there is the « Washing, service areas, lubricants, maintenance products and breakdown service » sector - plus the village dedicated to start-ups and innovations.

Pavilion 2.2 will host exhibitors in « Tires, rims and accessories ».

Finally, Pavilion 3 will focus on « Repair, maintenance, tools and servicing ».

Professionals in « Parts, Equipment and Components » will spread across all three pavilions, thanks to the positive dynamics of the European market.

 A completely redesigned layout will allow each exhibitor to be closer to its channel partners, while visitors can get a clear vision of the services and products offered in their chosen fields.

This organization has already attracted many professionals, and many more will make their return to EQUIP AUTO this year. Not to mention the 35 countries represented at the show thanks to the many foreign exhibitors. Almost 1,400 exhibitors and brands will be present at the 2017 event in Paris - completely reinvented by EQUIP AUTO. This will undoubtedly satisfy the 100,000 visitors expected at the Porte de Versailles from the 17th to 21st October.
