Sector representatives at EQUIP AUTO 2017

Attracted by the new impetus given to EQUIP AUTO, as unveiled by its Chairman at the launch night in June 2016, and by the advantages offered by a new exhibition venue in Paris, actors of the sector are eager to come to EQUIP AUTO 2017. Seven months prior to its opening, more than 80% of the exhibition space in the three halls has already been booked.

EQUIP AUTO is delighted to see that French and international suppliers are booking stands or confirming their intention to take part in equal proportions.

The 2017 edition will be in phase with the international positioning of the EQUIP AUTO brand, as proven by the presence of international suppliers on more than one third of the total area.

The presence of individual exhibitors and international halls confirms the interest in the French aftersales market and the reputation of the show outside France. Thus, EQUIP AUTO is preparing to welcome exhibitor pavilions from Asia (China, Taiwan, Thailand, Korea, Malaysia, etc.), India, Turkey, North Africa (Morocco, Tunisia) and Europe (Spain, Italy, Poland, the Netherlands and Macedonia).

The loyal return of major players in the sector is another reason to look forward to the 2017 show and to encourage visitors to come to the exhibition in October. EQUIP AUTO's parts and equipment suppliers include companies such as BOSCH CAR SERVICE, DELPHI, MANN & HUMMEL, SKF, TENNECO, etc., alongside loyal participants like CORTECO, ELRING, EFI, FEDERAL MOGUL, NTN, RECOR, SCHAEFFLER, SNR, SOGEFI, and many more, which will all be true crowd-pullers.
