Opened by Christian Estrosi, French Minister for Industry (representing the Minister of the Economy, Industry and Employment), EQUIP AUTO 2009 successfully met the challenge of putting on an exhibition centred on productivity and efficiency against a backdrop of economic crisis. The show which ran at the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre recorded an attendance of 91,160 manufacturers and trade professionals and, with international visitors making up 29% of that figure, also confirmed its worldwide appeal.

The majority of the 1,600 exhibitors, 80% of them international, noted a marked increase in their turnover and number of key contacts acquired. EQUIP AUTO continues to fulfil its role as a platform for innovation, having now established itself as a key industry meeting place, particularly in the way it is addressing electro-mobility.

During the exhibition, the SPX staff had the chance of presenting the programme with on line demonstration of the Outsource 2007 Database with custom research available for the visitors.

An overall  positive feedback had been shown about the quality of the information displayed and the quantity of companies profiled in the database.
