Organisers say the Parisian event successfully fulfilled their ambitions

With 78,280 trade members attending and nearly one thousand companies and brands exhibiting, including 45 percent who were new exhibitors, Equip Auto Paris organisers say the show has confirmed its stature as a key event for every strand of the after-sales automotive industry and services for connected mobility.
Held from the 18th to the 22nd of October at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, Equip Auto Paris 2022 achieved its ambitious attendance target of nearly 80,000 industry members.
The geo-political crisis, pandemic and economic issues, along with the transport strike on the first day, raised fears the event would fail to live up to expectations in terms of reach, however organisers explain that Equip Auto Paris in fact attracted large numbers of institutional organisations, exhibitors and visitors, all of whom enthused over the exhibition. 
“Feedback from exhibitors is enthusiastic. They confirm that they experienced an unprecedented Equip Auto Paris, marked by its friendly atmosphere, high footfall and the scale of business,” Equip Auto Director, Aurélie Jouve, said.
“The smiling faces we witnessed, both in the aisles and on the stands, brought further confirmation that the format and programme were highly relevant and aligned with industry needs.”
The organisers of Equip Auto Paris said they were also satisfied with the international audience, with attendance by over 160 international exhibitors from 20 different countries along with 40 Top Buyers from eight countries.
Equip Auto Paris also welcomed many politicians and international representatives. The Secretary of State to the Ministry of the Economy, Finances and Industrial and Digital Sovereignty tasked with Industry, Roland Lescure, officially opened the exhibition.
With its sights clearly set on the future, Equip Auto, which has presented its calendar of events for 2023/2024/2025, is now preparing its new Lyon event scheduled for the 28th to the 30th of September 2023, which will be held jointly with the Lyon Motor Show.
“I am very satisfied with this five-day exhibition and congratulate all the staff and exhibitors for their involvement,” Equip Auto Chairman, Philippe Baudin, said.
“All week, people thronged the aisles, delighted to be there. Many have already confirmed pre-registrations for Equip Auto Lyon in 2023. The gamble paid off!
“We will now all get together to review the exhibition, continue to make improvements and focus on the next step. We are looking forward to meeting up at Eurexpo with the Lyon Motor Show.”
