Just this second Parisian edition closed, from May 17 to 20 at Paris-Nord Villepinte, Global Industrie is looking to the future and is eager to return to its Lyonnaise lands, from March 7 to 10, 2023 at Eurexpo Lyon.

01. A global technological offer which is unique in the world

In four editions, Global Industrie has established itself as one of the leading exhibitions in the world dedicated to industry. 

Its resolutely modern positioning geared both to the industry of the future and to international business explains the success encountered by its previous editions held in even years in Paris and odd years in Lyon. A geographical diversification which enables it to enhance both its offer and the variety of its visitors.

Global Industrie is indeed the only event in France to cover the whole of industry, simultaneously bringing together:


start-ups, large companies, subcontractors, manufacturers of industrial equipment or solutions, competitive clusters, research centers, incubators, etc.


R&D, design, production, maintenance, services, training, etc.


transport, energy, food, chemicals, cosmetics & pharmaceuticals, mechanical engineering, etc.


All industrial players are thus sure to meet present and future partners there and to find the product, the equipment, the know-how or the solution they are looking for, thereby obtaining a considerable saving in time and investment and gaining in effectiveness.

This challenge is made possible by bringing together four complementary exhibitions which are leaders in their field: MIDEST (industrial subcontracting), SMART INDUSTRIES (smart, efficient and digital industry), INDUSTRIE (manufacturing technologies and equipment) and TOLEXPO (solutions and equipment for sheet metal working).


Firmly rooted in its time and a genuine barometer of industry, the exhibition changes each year to make its offer ever more legible, representative and complete through division into different sectors presenting both equipment and know-how. 

02. A major international event supported at the highest level

This has not gone unnoticed by the world of industry, in every sense of the word. Global Industrie thus has:

-85 countries represented by its visitors [Lien vers la page des visiteurs]

-40% of its exhibitors from abroad, from 40 countries [Lien vers la page des exposants].

This positioning and this outstanding European and global outreach [lien vers la page] explain the commitment and the active support for the exhibition shown by the highest political and institutional authorities as well as socio-professional organizations.

It is thus placed under the Patronage of the French President Mr. Emmanuel Macron, and plays host to a number of ministers, elected officials, ambassadors and representatives of the biggest European professional organizations in the world of industry.

This support can be explained by Global Industrie’s four main missions:

1 - Helping people

to obtain new skills and opening the way for them to new professions.

2 - Promoting the image of industry in France

to the general public and to young people in

3 - Supporting the whole industrial community

Its numerous experimentation areas give visitors a chance to see, touch and understand innovations, state-of-the-art industrial processes and prospects for the industry of the future.

A unique opportunity to carry out, in one place, a monitoring of trends and emerging signals which can allow transformations in industry to be anticipated more effectively.
