| Industrial subcontracting show

MIDEST in Paris is a leading international trade fair that plays a pivotal role in the industrial supply chain by offering a platform for buyers and subcontractors for procurement and networking. As one of the largest of its kind, it attracts manufacturers, distributors, and service providers from various sectors such as metalworking, plastics, electrical engineering, and industrial services. The fair's goal is to foster business partnerships and provide insights into new processes and materials, which is particularly relevant for professional buyers, production managers, and development engineers on the lookout for new suppliers..

MIDEST is part of the GLOBAL INDUSTRIE, a comprehensive international exhibition for production technologies, organized by GL events, a renowned organizer in the trade fair industry. The fair is held biennially in Paris, taking place in even years alongside TOLEXPO in Paris and in odd years in Lyon/Chassieu.

A distinctive feature of MIDEST is the numerous technical and economic conferences, along with the MIDEST Awards ceremony, which highlights innovation and excellence in the industry. These aspects contribute to MIDEST being more than just a fair – it's a central hub for knowledge exchange, innovation, and business development in the industrial supply sector.

The Paris edition of MIDEST is held at the prestigious Paris Nord Villepinte exhibition center, known for its excellent infrastructure and accessibility. This location provides ideal conditions for exhibitors and visitors from around the world to meet, initiate business, and solidify partnerships. Overall, MIDEST represents an indispensable event for all stakeholders in the industrial supply sector looking for innovative solutions and wanting to expand their networks.

The MIDEST takes place biennially, and therefore for the 48th time previsibly in March 2026 in Paris.
