EQUIP AUTO 2017 : discover the pre-program !

Published on by Jennifer ABIJABER - updated on

Repair today and prepare for tomorrow: this motto will inspire the program of activities at EQUIP AUTO this year. These will be organized around several highlights that will bring this 24th edition - and the themed routes for visitors – to life.

In a few weeks, the biennial automotive aftersales and mobility services event will open once again. To capture the interest of the visitors, the organizers of EQUIP AUTO joined forces with professional federations to meet the biggest needs expressed by the sector. In total, three priority issues were defined: to maintain fleets efficiently; help repairers adapt to a market transformed by new technologies, especially connected and autonomous vehicles; and encourage diversification of workshops.

The following topics led the organizers to come up with 7 "best of" themed routes:

  • new technologies
  • diagnostics
  • expertise
  • the connected garage
  • the workshop of tomorrow
  • the eco-conscious garage
  • boosting business

Supplemented by expert advice throughout the show, as well as an adapted program of conferences and workshops, these itineraries will allow professionals to get the most out of their visit.

To accompany the exhibitors' plan of activities, EQUIP AUTO has also revised its training workshops program, organized in partnership with the GNFA (National Group for Automotive Training), with a dedicated space. Named "EQUIP AUTO Tutorials", the Training & Demos area located in pavilion 3 of Paris Expo invites repairers to participate in demonstrations and group sessions. In particular, the GNFA has designed its program around different themes:

  • the connected bodywork painting workshop
  • autonomous vehicles
  • decontamination and CO2 emissions, etc.

These "Tutorials" will also be filmed and broadcast on the exhibition’s YouTube channel to allow as many people as possible to access these workshops.
