The only French event to bring the whole of industry within your reach.
For the first time in France, the following are brought together at a venue that is on a human scale and in a friendly atmosphere:
- The entire industrial ecosystem, from start up to major customer, including subcontractors, equipment manufacturers and industrial solution providers, competitiveness clusters, research centres and incubators,
- The whole added value chain: R&D, design, production, maintenance, services, training
- All the user industries: Transport and mobility, Energy and infrastructure, Food industry, Consumer goods, Chemicals, Cosmetics and Pharmaceuticals, Mechanical engineering...
Strength in union
Welcomed by 96% of visitors and 88% of exhibitors at its launch, unparalleled in its extent, both in terms of its size and its scope, as well as its international reach, this mega event brings together four complementary shows, each of which is a leader in its field, whilst preserving their individual identities
THE international reference for subcontracting know-how
the show for the connected, collaborative and efficient smart factory
the major event for production technologies and equipment
the international show for working metal in sheets, coils, tubes and sections
Their coming together under the same banner has allowed each to multiply its impact by attracting visitors and exhibitors it had not previously reached – 52% of visitors to GLOBAL INDUSTRIE were new, as were 47% of exhibitors, resulting in overall growth whilst enabling each show to make an unprecedented professional, political and media splash.
A winning synergy, with visitors who were surveyed in 2018 having visited an average of two or three shows.
The combination of the 4 shows was a great success first time out in 2018 in Paris with
100 000 m²
of exhibition space spread over 5 halls at Paris Nord Villepinte
exhibitors spanning the entire industrial ecosystem and added value chain, and 52 industries

Initiatives at the cutting edge of the industry of today and tomorrow
The event’s host of highlights included 4 major initiatives:
In 2018, GLOBAL INDUSTRIE hosted the first provisional factory totally dedicated to tomorrow’s industry. Occupying 1,000 m² and involving 80 companies, it produced and distributed personalized and engraved medals to more than 8,000 visitors. It was a technical challenge that was met with resounding success and interest in it was such that it will return in 2019 in Lyon.
Industry is recruiting and so GLOBAL INDUSTRIE set aside a 1,500 m² CAMPUS dedicated to teaching, training and employment, and to bring companies together with their employees of tomorrow.
Industry finally has its Oscars. They were presented during a grand, special reception before an audience of 1,500. 180 entries competing for an award in each of 6 categories reflected the diversity of the sector.
An exceptional programme shone the spotlight on the latest developments in industry. In 2018, there were over 200 speakers - including Jean-Bernard Lévy, the CEO of EDF, 65 lectures, round tables and master classes, 3 TV studios and 3,252 listeners over the 4 days
GLOBAL INDUSTRIE will move to Lyon
Building on a success that was acclaimed in both France and abroad, GLOBAL INDUSTRIE is returning from 5th to 8th March 2019 and will be hosted this time by the Eurexpo Exhibition Centre in Lyon.
Lyon makes sense for a number of reasons:
- Alternating with Paris every other year allows a substantial fresh pool of visitors and therefore business opportunities to be tapped into.
- The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region is one of the EU’s most important in terms of area, population and the wealth that is generated there as a result of it strategic position at the crossroads of Europe, its proximity to major markets, its competitiveness clusters, its living environment, and its young, active and growing population.
INDUSTRIE was already being held every other year in Lyon with increasing success. In 2017 it attracted 24,934 visitors (+22%) and 1,006 exhibitors (+17%).
It’s a not-to-be missed event
In the beginning was the Word…
of industry and politicians
GLOBAL INDUSTRIE was born out of this joint wish and has now been brought into being by GL events.
As the Industry of the Future redraws the industrial landscape and re-shuffles the pack, France holds a number of trump cards that could enable it to regain its leading position amongst major industrial powers. Industry but also Emmanuel Macron, who, in 2015, when he was the Minister of the Economy and Industry made the modernization of industry a national priority, called for the creation of a major European event focused on the future that would bring together the whole of industry. This has now come to pass with GLOBAL INDUSTRIE, following the acquisition in 2017 by GL events, they are now the organizers, of the MIDEST and TOLEXPO exhibitions.
Major figures from industry and French and international politics crowded its aisles, demonstrating the return of industry to the heart of France’s—and also Europe’s—economic concerns.
GLOBAL INDUSTRIE therefore takes its place as one of the first major events dedicated to the industry of the future in Europe.
