The British Pavilion at Intermat 2012


Joanna Oliver MBE, director of Global Programmes at the CEAOrganized and managed by the Construction Equipment Association (CEA)

The CEA in conjunction with UKTI has successfully organised a ‘high impact’ UK Pavilion at the forthcoming Intermat exhibition which takes place in Paris from 16th – 21st April this year. The dedicated Pavilion will feature more than 20 UK exhibitors comprising construction companies, industry suppliers and UK associations.

Intermat attracts over 1,470 exhibitors from around the world and the smaller exhibitor might otherwise get lost in the show’s enormity without the umbrella of a high profile area devoted to UK industry. The CEA has taken the strain out of exhibiting at a show of this size and offers exhibitors a cost effective fully managed, fitted turnkey shell scheme stand freeing up exhibitors to do what they do best – selling!

Joanna Oliver MBE (above), director of Global Programmes at the CEA and organiser of the UK Pavilion at Intermat said, “It’s great that we are able to help so many UK companies at Intermat. Even better that we can do it with the support of UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) both for exhibitors and for the CEA to run the UK Pavilion and generic UK Information Centre to promote UK Construction equipment.

“Some of the Pavilion exhibitors are pretty new to export and some old hands – that’s part of what makes the UK Pavilions a success for the exhibitors – everyone is willing to share experiences, export tips and contacts and lend each other a hand where needed.

“This year we are working with UKTI to promote the UK Exhibitors at Intermat and to run a meet-the-buyer programme of meetings with Intermat visitors from target market countries like Brazil, China and India.”


I apologise for the lack of pictures or more detail in the following report, but despite contacting many of the companies, especially those with new products, by telephone and by email, the lack of response is very disappointing. There seems to be a degree of apathy, disinterest or reluctance to provide more information or even images.

This is very discouraging for our readers who are given little reason to visit the British Pavilion and to the CEA who are trying to help British manufacturers export - especially as the British manufacturers have so much to offer. - Editor, Roger Lindley
