THE NONSTOP NEWS MEDIA FOR THE BODYWORK SECTOR
The FFC is a key player in innovation and development in the French bodywork industry, a showcase representing more than 80,000 employees and the custodian of the long-term future of the bodywork profession.
SOLUTRANS, bringing together market players from across the heavy and light commercial vehicle industry, will hold its 18th edition from 21 to 25 November 2023 at Lyon Eurexpo, France. The event, certified by the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA) and held over 90,000 sqm, will draw nearly 50,000 professionals along with 1,000 exhibitors and brands from all over the world, brought together under a shared banner: “Energy transition: all responsible.”
SOLUTRANS is the two-yearly rendezvous of one of the most innovative sector verticals, from industry to services. Global economic conditions make SOLUTRANS a showcase for the exceptional performances of HGV builders, bodywork manufacturers, vehicle fitters, OEMs, manufacturers of workshop equipment, tyre professionals and distribution networks.
SOLUTRANS also aims to echo the challenges of the sector, with a specific focus on energy sources, retrofitting, city centre deliveries and its constraints, etc. Moreover, this year the show will present its vision of the “last yard”, with an approach centring on city centre access restrictions, and low emission zones in particular. New delivery methods, notably cargo bikes, which are becoming a part of the transport ecosystem, will have a large educational and test area allotted to them in the centre of Hall 1.
With its status as a global industry event, SOLUTRANS has set itself the goal of supporting the industrial sector, promoting solutions to professionals, and anticipating the challenges that lie ahead.
