The PARIS MOTOR SHOW (MONDIAL DE L'AUTO), and the EQUIP AUTO trade show come together to announce the launching of the Paris Automotive Week in autumn 2022.
The PARIS MOTOR SHOW and the EQUIP AUTO trade show are coming back in 2022. The two flagship events in the automotive industry will come together and be held at the same time in autumn 2022 to form the Paris Automotive Week.
Faced with historic challenges, the automotive sector is looking to the future more than ever, investing unprecedented amounts into vehicles that would provide sustainable and connected transport for all. Over the last few months, and after successive periods of lockdown, consumers around the world have proven the importance of freedom of movement and individual transport.
With its large companies, manufacturers and parts suppliers operating on a global scale, as well as its engineering companies, start-ups and all the distribution and repair companies, the automotive and transportation industry in France is one of the four largest players in the world and an effective incentive for innovation in the country.
In this context, the French automotive sector is delighted to announce the return of the PARIS MOTOR SHOW and the EQUIP AUTO trade show in autumn 2022. For the first time, the two flagship events in the automotive sector are coming together to form the Paris Automotive Week, which will be held at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles exhibition center from 17 to 23 October 2022.
The PARIS MOTOR SHOW will take place from 17 to 23 October 2022 and will be the BtoC highlight of this great automotive week. A digital platform will be launched over the next few weeks.
It will offer automotive and transport multimedia content and allow French and international visitors to register and find all the information they need.
The EQUIP AUTO trade show, which will take place from 18 to 22 October, is the leading international BtoB event for after-sales and connected mobility services. It will be reserved exclusively for professionals, who will be able to access the PARIS MOTOR SHOW at the same time.
Running from 17 to 23 October 2022 at the Porte de Versailles exhibition center, the Paris Automotive Week will be centered around a series of events, including inspiring talks and test drives. It will be a world premiere that brings together professionals and the general public, while also providing an opportunity for the automotive industry to share its vision for the future of automobiles and transport with journalists and visitors from France and world-wide.
"After two years of living through the pandemic and faced with the unprecedented challenges looming over the automotive industry, we found ourselves together in the same place and it all suddenly became very clear to us. And so the "Paris Automotive Week" was born. For one week, Paris will be the best showcase, lab and forum for 21st-century automobiles and transport.
It is a week where France will welcome the world to unveil the latest automotive models and present them to the general public, whilst also sharing with professionals the new developments and concepts designed to equip, maintain and repair the vehicles of today and tomorrow. It is a week to reiterate how important this industry is to France - an industry that is at the heart of the innovation shaping future sustainable mobility.
Whilst still keeping their own individual identities, the two shows were duty bound to create this new international event, which is open to the general public, professionals and policy makers," said Luc Chatel, President of the PFA (Plateforme Filière Automobile - French automotive sector platform) and Claude Cham, Honorary President of the FIEV (Fédération des Industries des Equipements pour Véhicules - French Federation of Vehicle Equipment Industries) and President of EQUIP AUTO SAS.
"Reinventing Services For Mobility": The EQUIP AUTO trade show is the leading international event for after-sales and connected mobility services in the EMEA region. Innovation, expertise, sharing and user-friendliness are at the heart of everything it strives to achieve.
It brings together players and know-how from the automotive industry to successfully design and develop the mobility services of tomorrow. EQUIP AUTO is a FIEV (Fédération des Industries des Equipements pour Véhicules - French Federation of Vehicle Equipment Industries) and FFC (Fédération Française de Carrosserie - French bodywork federation) trade show, organised by the Comexposium group.
It is held every two years at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles exhibition centre and brings together more than 1,200 exhibitors and brands and 95,000 professionals.
