INTERMAT has been going on since 1988 and editions are held once every three years in Paris, France. The location of the event is Paris-Nord Villepinte (VIPARIS) and programming lasts for a total of five days. INTERMAT has been so successful in Europe that it was easily transplanted to the East with INTERMAT India and INTERMAT Asia.
The product portfolio is quite rich and extends to earthmoving, demolition & transportation; buildings & concrete sector; lifting & handling; roads, minerals & foundations; new technologies. Between the live demo area and the INTERMAT Innovation Awards, there’s quite a lot to experience at the exhibition. One of the new additions to programming is INTERMAT RENTAL DAY, which centers around the practice of construction equipment rental.
The demo area specifically is its own show as over 30,000 sq. metres of outdoor exhibition area is dedicated to a wide range of machinery that you get to see perform under real-life conditions. The audience is electrified at the displays made from excavators, compact excavators, loaders, graders, screeners, crushers, machines and equipment for demolition. It’s certainly a sight to behold and the most effective way to sell your vehicles and machinery. Buyers are able to inspect the machinery in great detail and see it perform as intended.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
INTERMAT pulls in some of the biggest companies from around the world. You’ll get to see the latest innovations from Hyundai Engineering & Construction, Strabag, Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, China Railway Construction Corporation, Taisen Corporation and Bauer. It’s why you have such a number of high-profile visitors involved in construction from all over the world. The level of internationality is exceptional as over 70% of all exhibitors are foreign companies and 30% of all visitors are foreign nationals.
Speaking of geography, INTERMAT is the prime meeting point for European markets such as the Netherlands, Germany, the UK, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Poland, Ireland, Finland and Greece. That’s only the starting point as visitors come from the Middle East, Northern Africa, the Americas and East Asia. A booth at INTERMAT ensures you’ll never stay local and have the means to branch out internationally without the usual obstacles.
INTERMAT is the go-to trade event for 50% out of the top 100 largest worldwide construction contractors. That’s reason enough to attend. Out of all trade visitors 78% came to purchase or make an investment and 67% happen to be with purchasing powers. What’s even better is that in the last edition, 36% of all in attendance were first-time visitors. This means a good foundation for expanding your client list and gaining brand recognition.
Additional Value of Attending
If you’re a new company that’s looking for their big break, then the Startup Village is where you need to be. There’s space for 30 startups in total to showcase their products and solutions, and you will be quite visible to important decision makers and investors. The Village comes with exciting perks such as a guaranteed slot on the Forum of the New Technology hub, additional promotion ahead of the show and bonus tools. Perhaps best of all, you get to participate in the INTERMAT Innovation Awards for the Startup Award.
There’s great attention given to foreign buyers. INTERMAT'S International Delegation Lounge is the home base for all non-French visitors, who need the proper space without a language barrier to do what they need to do. In addition to a personal welcome and the lounge for appointments, visitors can request interpreters to help them and can sign up for guided tours. The business centre makes visitors’ stay at INTERMAT all the more productive.
The construction industry, as many others, is grappling with the effects of digitization. That’s one of the mega trends transforming the landscape. That’s why INTERMAT chose to highlight this with themed villages. We already talked about the Startup Village, but let’s talk about the other two. The Demolition and Recycling Village is set up in the earthmoving sector and consists of meeting and presentation spaces dedicated to round table discussions and exhibitor workshops. Now the Building Smart Village can be found in the Building & Concrete Sector and is a specialised area for digital technologies. Themes include BIM Cabin, earthmoving monitoring using airborne 3D surveys, digital design and robotic manufacturing and building data management systems.
