What they say:

The event will be the most comprehensive exhibition in France, from primary wood processing to finishing and covering all uses of wood. We have a clear and targeted expansion strategy to boost international visitor numbers. Starting with areas of strong influence from France... As a reminder, EXPOBOIS is the only exhibition in France recognized by EUMABOIS, the European organisation of woodworking machinery manufacturers. The new EXPOBOIS schedule is perfectly positioned to align with construction market events... The increased presence of craftsmen, industry representatives and buyers encourages suppliers to participate in EXPOBOIS on these new dates in a dynamic environment alongside the BOBâT Space. Michel LOYET Chairman of the Wood Group, SYMOP Co-President of the show in charge of Primary Processing and wood construction

Since its launch, the Bobât exhibition claimed to offer “a full timber offering under one roof, serving industry, construction and trade.” And visitors rightly observed: “To broaden the scope of what can be seen in one trip, why not add equipment into the mix?” Today that mission is complete!
