EQUIP AUTO 2011 is 70% booked up already

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).


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: Researchers Discover New Anti-Cancer Protein

An international team of researchers has discovered a new anti-cancer protein. The protein, called LHPP, prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The researchers led by Prof. Michael N. Hall from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, report in “Nature” that LHPP can also serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of liver cancer.

The incidence of liver cancer, also known as hepatocellular carcinoma, is steadily increasing. In the last twenty years, the number of cases has almost doubled...

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

Im Focus: Alliance „OLED Licht Forum“ – Key partner for OLED lighting solutions

Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, provider of research and development services for OLED lighting solutions, announces the founding of the “OLED Licht Forum” and presents latest OLED design and lighting solutions during light+building, from March 18th – 23rd, 2018 in Frankfurt a.M./Germany, at booth no. F91 in Hall 4.0.

They are united in their passion for OLED (organic light emitting diodes) lighting with all of its unique facets and application possibilities. Thus experts in...

Oceans formed before Tharsis and evolved together, shaping climate history of Mars

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million...

Im Focus: Tiny implants for cells are functional in vivo

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.

In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...
