The 2012 edition of Micronora, which has just ended, has once again proved its position as an international exhibition of microtechnology and high precision by offering visitors the most technical, technological and innovative offer on the market, regardless of the user sector concerned. In addition, a very rich conference programme has positioned Micronora as a place of training and business.
Despite a difficult economic environment, especially in the automotive sector, French and international contractors (up 15% for the latter) remain promising projects. Indeed, the success of the show lies in the fact that microtechnicals occupy an increasingly important place in the global industry and represent one of the most dynamic sectors. With countless fields of application and the ability to transfer their technologies from one sector to another, microtechnicals hold an undeniable asset that allows companies to diversify and open up to new markets.
593 direct exhibitors (up 5% / 2010) to which must be added 300 firms or brands represented.
34% foreign exhibitors, 39% national and 27% regional.
The number of visitors - 13,921 - is stable compared to previous editions.
However, exhibitors and visitors stressed the quality of contacts, which proves that in times of crisis, quality takes precedence over quantity, and that it is the decision-makers with real needs that move.
Nearly 54% of visitors came to discover the new exhibitors, and nearly 30% came looking for solutions for a specific project.
Finally, it is important to note that visitors are interested in a balanced range of activities represented by the microtechnical sector, with a slight advantage for machining.
