Industry Relevance 

SEPEM Industries is an established brand with a lot of editions that specifically target different regions in France. Overall, there are seven trade fairs in total: Est, Nord, Sud-Ouest, Sud-Est, Centre-Est, Nord-Ouest and Centre-Ouest. This final one is the one we’re talking about. Based in Angers, SEPEM Industries Centre-Ouest is dedicated to industrial optimisation, innovation and investment. The trade fair arrives every year in October at the Parc de expositions Destination Angers. Exhibitors are able to fully immerse themselves into their specific region, grow their roots and find the right soil for their products to reach the best possible audience. 

Exhibitors cover the entire value chain and present the next generation of equipment and solutions in the manufacturing and industrial sectors. The exhibition halls present maintenance tools, process equipment to improve the productivity of production lines, services and equipment for protection and safety, and ecologically responsible solutions. The specific nature of the trade fair as a mainly regional event makes it an ideal location for exhibitors to maximise visibility and build a strong connection to the community. The network opportunities are not to be missed.

In terms of technological innovation, you have to check out the Machine Tool & Robotics Area, where exhibitors display and demonstrate machine tools, workshop machines and robotics. Here is where you’re able to find the most eager buyers and investors, who are looking for new ways to optimise production in their factories. 

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

Angers is one of the bigger industrial sectors in France and SEPEM Industries Centre-Ouest brings in an audience from a wide variety of industries. Exhibitors make contacts with professionals in metallurgy and steel, the automotive industry, equipment manufacturing, mechanics, plastics and rubber, composite materials, surface treatment and boiler making. 

In addition to the decision makers and high-ranking company officials from major contractors and industrial operations, the trade fair also attracts the professionals that are on the ground. You’ll get to hear direct feedback from blue-collar workers, engineers, specialists and so many more.

Additional Value of Attending 

All SEPEM Industries events feature the SEPEM Avenir service. Employment is a major priority for organisers, which is why this service exists to help companies find the right candidates and to inform newcomers about possible careers. There’s going to be training and lecturing on which professions are going to be indispensable in the future. SEPEM Avenir is meant for HR, job seekers and young graduates. Job seekers can discover job offers and leave their CVs to employers. It’s an effective recruitment programme. We also have to highlight the meetings education, training and employment partners, and the business demos lineup. 

Another way for exhibitors to find their audience is to sign up for the Subcontracting Area. This is where subcontractors are able to connect with industrialists in the region, who need to outsource or relocate processes. The trade fair has created necessary spaces where this networking can take place naturally. There’s a great variety of expertise that are showcased – sheet metal work, heat treatment, surface treatment, 3D printing, grinding, prototyping, industrial transfers, precision mechanics and metal transformation. The list is so much longer. 

SEPEM Industries Centre-Ouest is also known for its informative programme. You have a choice in conferences, workshops, expert presentations and demonstrations during the entire event. There is a wonderful lineup of technical conferences that tackle subjects such as Maintenance 4.0, production and the industry of the future. 

Are you looking for ways to stand out and enjoy qualified foot traffic to your booth? Then we have to point out two major guided trails available. First, there was the Environmental Solutions Course that focused on the transition towards greener and eco-friendlier technologies. This is the result of the increasing concerns regarding climate change. The trail tackles the most recent innovations in the field of green technologies. There’s also the Factory of the Future trail, which curates a lineup of exhibitors that are changing how manufacturing works. We’re already in Industry 5.0 and new technologies like additive manufacturing, robotization, IO, cybersecurity, virtual & augmented reality and big data are transforming the industry as we speak. Interested buyers receive a detailed overview of what’s available on the market today.
