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.

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.
To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...
The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.
Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
