A brand new event awaits manufacturers in the Greater South-West this autumn. And it's a big one. On September 20-21-22, 2022, the CFIA (Carrefour des Fournisseurs de l'Industrie Agroalimentaire) and Sepem Industries (L'industrie au cœur des territoires) are organizing a joint event for the first time in their history, at the Meett in Toulouse.
A genuine synergy between two brands with shared values: business, conviviality and innovation.
An unprecedented association to offer a top-quality event that will bring together 600 exhibitors, making it one of the largest gatherings of industrial suppliers in the Greater South-West. The organizers are determined to ensure that all industrial players, whatever their business or sector, find solutions to their current and future challenges.
Toulouse, a key destination
So it's in Toulouse, at the heart of a brand-new facility (the Meett), that this grand premiere will take place. A destination that obviously owes nothing to chance.
First and foremost, because the region's industrial fabric is dynamic and significant, to say the least. Aeronautics and space, agriculture, biotechnology: these are just some of the industries that are definitely looking to the future, and have already gone 4.0 in the South-West.
What's more, the agri-food sector is one of the main recruiters and employers, with over 65,000 employees in the South-West region alone.
" The region needed an event of this magnitude. There are still 3 months to go before it opens its doors, but the event is already fully booked in terms of exhibitors, proof of its relevance. It will challenge the industrial sectors "says a delighted Sébastien Gillet, director of CFIA Toulouse.
Over the course of 3 days, these industrial sectors will be able to carry out effective sourcing at trade shows on a human scale, enabling them to identify a wide range of solutions that meet their expectations and the challenges of tomorrow.
An event with a strong identity
Behind this joint event, there is also a promise: that everyone - SMEs, ETIs and large groups alike - will benefit from an event close to their factories, true to the established and recognized know-how that is the common denominator of the CFIA and Sepem brands.
In Rennes for the CFIA, where it has been held since 1997, and where it is considered to be the must-attend event in the whole of the West of France. For its premiere in Toulouse, it will offer a complete and unprecedented range of products and services, covering all sectors of the agri-food industry, from ingredients & PAI to packaging and equipment & processes.
For the past 15 years, Sepem Industries has been the region's leading multi-sector industrial showcase, located in France's 7 industrial regions (Colmar, Grenoble, Douai, Rouen, Angers, Martigues and Toulouse). In the coming months, it will celebrate its 5th anniversary.e edition in Toulouse, where it attracted almost 4,000 visitors in 2019. With a range of solutions built around 4 pillars: optimizing productivity, securing men, women and sites, supporting digital transformation and accompanying the ecological transition.
On September 20-21-22, the program promises to be copious. The aim is to add a new event to the agendas of manufacturers from the South-West and beyond, and to offer them a relevant and differentiating range of products and services.
" Sepem and CFIA are determined to strengthen their territorial network and forge local and regional partnerships. There's a real desire to support regional players. Through this joint event, we are making the most of the 2 brands We're always on the lookout for new ideas," notes Julie Voyer, Director of Sepem Industries. And to bring the whole industrial world in their wake. An industrial world that, in short, was waiting for a quality event, in the right place, at the right time...
