This year’s MIDeST exhibition will take place as part of GLOBAL INDUSTRIe, a new show that is a first for France and aims to ‘bring together the whole of France and Europe’s industrial ecosystem’.
The event takes place from 27th to 30th March 2018 at Paris Nord Villepinte and has the patronage of the French President Emmanuel Macron.
The four complementary events that make up GLOBAL INDUSTRIe are MIDeST, SMART INDUSTRIeS, INDUSTRIe, and TOLeXPO. Although coming together to create under a larger umbrella event, each show will nevertheless preserve its own identity and unique nature.
Announcing the event in November the French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe said: “It will allow the know-how of our French Fab companies to be promoted and to offer them the best possible springboard for their international expansion.”
With GLOBAL INDUSTRIe GL events Group has created France’s largest cross-sector gathering of industry which has the support of industry professionals, regional authorities and trade associations.
Founded almost 50 years ago, MIDeST covers almost every aspect of subcontracting know-how and will feature 1360 exhibitors, of which 40% will be from outside France.
The show will include eight focused villages highlighting the shows various sectors, covering both French and international exhibitors, and including specific examples and demonstrations of technology, the presentation of spectacular or highly technical parts, as well as mini workshops focusing on a sector of subcontracting.
SMART INDUSTRIeS will bring together the major players in connected, collaborative and efficient industry.
INDUSTRIe is the flagship show for production technologies and equipment and TOLeXPO covers sheet metal working technology.
GLOBAL INDUSTRIe will attract visitors from 50 industries and has been promoted internationally.
