EQUIP AUTO 2011 is 70% booked up already

21.03.2011
EQUIP AUTO 2011, the biennial international exhibition for automotive parts, systems and equipment, will take place at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition centre (France) from 11 to 15 October 2011.

Total exhibition space in 2011 will stand at 100,000 square metres – an increase of 25% on 2009 – and, already, 70% of that has been booked, which illustrates the fact the trade show has got off to a very good start.

For October 2011, EQUIP AUTO is expecting 96,000 visitors (including 35% coming from outside France) and 1,800 exhibitors across all sectors (75% from outside France and 25% from within the country). The 2011 trade show has got off to a promising and positive start: total exhibition space stands at 100,000 square metres, which amounts to an increase of 25% on the 2009 exhibition’s available floor space, and 70% of that is booked already.

The fact that several sector-leading companies — including such as Continental Teves-VDO, ContiTech, Hella, Knorr Bremse, Mahle, Meritor, TI Automotive (vehicle equipment), Facom (tools), and Washtec (car-wash equipment) - have already signed up to the trade show is a clear indication that EQUIP AUTO is the key event for all industry players in Europe.

Other participants already confirmed include Europa and Omia (auto body painting), which will participate in the Bodywork Village organised by the Fédération Française de la Carrosserie, or FFC (French Bodywork Association). Exhibitors returning this year also include industry giants such as PSA Peugeot Citröen and Renault.

A number of equipment manufacturers, tooling suppliers and distribution groups that took part in EQUIP AUTO 2009 will also take part this year. These companies include Autodistribution, Beru-Borgwarner, Bosch, Corteco-Freudenberg, Delphi, Hutchinson, Mann+Hummel, NTN-SNR roulements, Schaeffler, Starexcel (Autolia Group), Valeo and ZF Trading.

In the diagnostics sector, Actia and Texa have confirmed their presence at EQUIP AUTO 2011. The garage-equipment sector will also be well represented at this year’s trade show, with EGI Europe, Fog, Förch, KS Tool, Provac, Ravaglioli and SNA Europe, which have all confirmed their intention to attend.

EQUIP AUTO 2011 takes into account the new ideas and the trends that are shaping the ever-changing automotive world. The trade show aims to help the industry anticipate and structure the automotive aftersales market of tomorrow, by including the leading players of the next decade in manufacturing, equipment supplies, subcontracting and hi-tech clusters, among others.

With this in mind, EQUIP AUTO 2011 will host the second GreenTech Forum, which was introduced in 2009, on electromobility. This forum brings together key industry players; it allows them to discuss challenges and trends affecting the equipment market of the future, which will be built around mobility that operates without relying on oil, but on renewables (including electric vehicles).

About EQUIP AUTO

EQUIP AUTO is a key international exhibition for all types of vehicle equipment. This B2B event brings together manufacturers, distributors and repairers seeking new products, services or partners.

The trade show is organised by Comexposium, together with the Fédération Française de la Carrosserie, or FFC (French Bodywork Association), and the Fédération des Industries des Equipements pour Véhicules, or FIEV (French Vehicle Equipment Industries Association).

The trade show will take place from 11 to 15 October 2011 at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, north of the French capital.

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Im Focus: Water is not the same as water

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
