Reinventing services for mobility

From 28 to 30 September 2023 at EUREXPO Lyon
An exceptional, UNESCO World Heritage listed city, Lyon is also the capital of a French region, Auvergne Rhône-Alpes (AuRA), which entertains longstanding ties with the automotive industry.

Boasting nearly 55,000 employees in more than 21,000 companies, a  competition cluster dedicated to mobility solutions, and the headquarters of  leading companies in the mobility sector (Michelin, Renault Trucks, Iveco, etc), the AuRA region and the Greater Lyon area, situated at the crossroads of  Europe, constitute a major economic basin in France and one of the lungs of  its automotive industry.
The choice of the city of Lyon was a natural one thanks to its strong international potential, its excellent transport links (road, rail and air), its proximity to Switzerland and Italy, and the fact that the Lyon Motor Show will be held from 28 September to 2 October 2023. France's leading motor show, in terms of the number of car makes present, has become an unmissable event and a benchmark in the French automotive landscape.

Press release - The Presidency of the French Republic grants its patronage to the 2023 editions of EQUIP AUTO Lyon and the Lyon Motor Show

Paris, 12 September 2023 - EQUIP AUTO Lyon and the Lyon Motor Show are proud to announce this token of interest from the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron, which underlines the contribution of both shows to France's reputation for automotive excellence.
EQUIP AUTO, the benchmark B2B show for the French automotive industry, and the Lyon Motor Show, France's leading motor show in terms of the number of brands exhibiting, will be held jointly at Eurexpo Lyon from 28 September to 2 October 2023. 
This partnership between the two shows reflects a shared desire to create a regular meeting place for the entire automotive and mobility value chain.

Press release - The official programme of conferences and major forums

With more than 550 exhibitors and brands registered to date out of the 400 initially expected for this first edition in Lyon, EQUIP AUTO has confirmed its position as the essential B2B meeting place for the automotive industry, its transitions and its innovations.
Thanks to a programme of information, discussions and decision-making aids geared towards users and professionals in the automotive maintenance and services sector, 90 speakers will be tackling the subjects and issues shaping the future of the automotive after-sales market and services linked to connected mobility.
The major forums and conferences will be held in the show's Conference Area, with simultaneous translation in English.

EQUIP AUTO showcases innovation with its Start-ups Village

Discovering innovations is the leading reason that people visit EQUIP AUTO, and for nine out of 10 exhibitors, the exhibition is a showcase for innovation. And indeed, the changes that lie ahead for the automotive aftermarket are spurring firms to become innovative. 
This is what has led the show to team up with France AutoTech et Sparker, to bring together start-ups, investors and vehicle servicing and repair professionals working in the aftermarket and mobility fields. 
On the  agenda: tangible solutions to the sector’s current and future problems


The automotive after-sales sector must evolve to adapt to the shift in the vehicle fleet towards all-electric vehicles. Most of the maintenance operations required by combustion engines will eventually disappear. As a result, tyres will become a major factor in traffic generation and an essential asset in making workshops profitable.
This is why all the players in the aftersales sector are now taking an interest in tyres, including those who, for good or bad reasons, have hitherto ignored this activity. And that's why it seemed necessary to highlight tyres at the heart of the Equip Auto show.

The International Automotive Innovation Awards

For this new EQUIP AUTO edition, the International Automotive Innovation Awards will be presented at EQUIP AUTO Lyon 2023. They will aim to select and distinguish the most innovative concepts, products and services of EQUIP AUTO  exhibitors and promote emerging technologies in the automotive aftermarket.
The International Automotive Innovation Awards reflect an international dynamic around the know-how, skills and innovations of companies.
Awarded by a jury of French and international journalists, they are open to all exhibitors.
