Following cancellation of the 2021 event due to the Covid pandemic, Intermat, which normally runs every three years, this time is from 24 to 27 April 2024. Much has changed in the industry since 2018, making this a must-attend event to see the latest developments in products and services helping to make the industry more efficient and sustainable.

With an eye on sustainability, the event organiser has shortened Intermat 2024 from six to four days, in a bid to save energy and reduce emissions. It will be divided into five main categories: lifting and handling; earthmoving, demolition and transportation; roads, materials and foundations; building, civil engineering and concrete; and the fifth element, new for Intermat 2024, is new technologies and energies.

In addition to the indoor and outdoor exhibitor stands, there will be the usual demonstration area where machines can be operated in real-world conditions.

Christian Lecarpentier, Intermat director, told Andy Brown, editor of ICST sister publication International Construction, “We should reach 1,000 exhibitors by April, at least 1,000 brands will be present.” He added that the show is on track to achieve its floor space target of 80,000 square metres.

The 2018 event attracted about 1,500 exhibitors and 180,000 visitors.

A majority of visitors will be from Europe but Intermat is positioned as an international show and 70 per cent of the exhibitors are from outside France. Carpentier says they’ve been working to attract people from Asia, India, Africa and America.

With the Parc des Expositions de Villepinte easily accessible from central Paris, and with Charles de Gaulle airport on its doorstep, Intermat is one of the most accessible construction trade shows on the calendar. Combine that with the range of new technology on display and it will be a show not to be missed.
