Industry Relevance 

Micronora, Europe’s leading trade fair for microtechnology, micro-nanotechnology and precision technology, takes place every two years at Micropolis in Besançon. Since its founding in 1970, the fair has become a specialised platform that gathers the entire microtechnology sector under one roof. The reason is simple. Micronora offers a diverse range of multi-technological solutions from research and development to subcontracting and production technologies that pull in key players across all links in the processing chain. The common thread among all the trades represented at the fair is the pursuit of high precision, miniaturisation and the integration of complex functions. 

Micronora attracts thousands of professional visitors, making it an excellent platform for exhibitors to showcase their latest achievements, enhance their brand image and secure new contracts. The decision to space out editions allows manufacturers to catch up with technological trends and also have more time to develop new technologies. Exhibitors contribute innovations from all market segments, including research and development, subcontracting and production technologies. Visitors can explore a plethora of microtechnologies. Here’s the full list of products you can expect to see on the exhibition grounds: 

  • Precision mechanical engineering
  • Stamping, cutting, forming, tools and dies
  • Injection, overmoulding, tools
  • Machining, micromachining, bar turning
  • Additive manufacturing
  • Treatment and post-treatment

What sets Micronora apart is its hyper-focused showcase on high precision, miniaturisation, and the integration of complex functions. This emphasis on critical technologies enables the creation of more intelligent products across a wide range of industries. Micronora caters to sectors such as aeronautics, space, automotive, medical, biomedical, defence and luxury goods, offering valuable insights into the latest advancements and solutions. The trade fair also features B2B Meetings - Micro-Nano events that facilitate information exchange and an inspiring conference program, making it an unmissable event for players in the Microtech industry. 

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

Micronora attracts a diverse audience of professionals from various industries, all seeking the latest innovations and solutions offered by micro- and nano-technologies, whose applications have a lot of potential across all global industries. Let’s take a look at the breakdown of exhibitors and trade visitors. 

At Micronora 2022, there were a total of 603 direct exhibitors followed by representatives of 221 brands or firms. Notably, 33% of exhibitors were foreign in origin, highlighting the international appeal and reach of the event. The exhibitor list features names such as Werucon, Realmeca, Scalia, Renishaw, Gismal, Laser Fusion, Legeni, Lemtronic and Groupe Novtek. 

The trade fair is mostly a door to the French market, which is why only 15.5% of trade visitors travelled from foreign countries, most of which are located in Europe. The presence of foreign visitors increased slightly compared to the previous edition of the fair, but is still low considering the effects of the pandemic on the industry. Customers from Switzerland and European Union countries showed strong attendance. 

The appeal of Micronora extends to a wide range of market sectors. Micro- and nano-technologies find applications in numerous cutting-edge industries. This includes sectors such as aeronautics, information technology, automotive, medical, biomedical, defence, electro-mechanics, luxury goods, space, equipment, railways, microelectronics, energy and telecommunications. You’ll be in the presence of senior buyers who have real purchasing power, when it comes to placing orders. Visitors’ main objective in attending Micronora is to perform in-depth market research and source new suppliers. 

Additional Value of Attending 

Each edition of Micronora zooms in on an important facet of micro-technologies, which then turns into a focal point for the fair. This is the Zoom, which covers 300 sq. metres at the heart of the fair and showcases the avant-garde technologies of industrial companies and research centres. In 2022, the theme was “New microtechnology materials and processes,” directing exhibitors’ and visitors’ gaze towards less prominent materials that need to be reevaluated and embraced in manufacturing. These materials have proven themselves useful in the manufacturing of luxury goods and medicine among others.
