7 categories representing the richness of the world of industry


It is only right that France’s first major event devoted to industry in its entirety should present a series of awards honouring the most innovative companies.
And that’s precisely what the GLOBAL INDUSTRIE Awards do by providing a 360° survey of innovation. They are a key tool for visitors, 66% of whom state that monitoring technology is their prime reason for visiting.
The 6 totally new categories are open to all exhibitors and reflect the cutting-edge diversity of the sector:

... provides recognition for innovations delivering a significant improvement through gains in productivity, key ratios or performance.


... highlights new products resulting from technology transfer or a major technological innovation


... is the award for a project, product or service brought to fruition through the collaboration of several different manufacturers or service providers.


... rewards exceptional know-how devoted to the delivery of parts, services, sub-assemblies and other systems.


... shines the spotlight on service and technology providers working with companies embarking on transition or those that have succeeded in making changes.


... honours innovations that promote energy efficiency, the circular economy, CSR, ergonomics, eco-design…


This category will make its first appearance in 2019 and will provide well deserved recognition and a helping hand for innovative young companies with considerable growth potential, many of which are looking for investment funding to give them a leg up.
GLOBAL INDUSTRIE is committed to helping them with this Award, which takes its place alongside a village totally dedicated to start-ups in SMART INDUSTRIES.



It is an initiative that guarantees its participants media exposure and tremendous benefits both in terms of profile and business.
