Expoprotection 2016 - Understanding and anticipating the major changes of tomorrow
Published on 26 July 2016
Expoprotection, the trade show for risk prevention and risk management, will take place 7-9 November 2016 in Paris – Porte de Versailles – Pavilion 1.
Held every two years, the event brings together the top experts and the most innovative solutions from two complementary sectors – Occupational, Natural & Industrial Risks and Security & Fire fighting – making Expoprotection the benchmark event in the industry.
With new modern visual identity and unifying theme of looking to the future, Expoprotection brings participants all the keys to understanding and anticipating the major changes of tomorrow. With its sights set firmly on 2030, the trade show is revamping its content – both the substance and the form – to enable people to stand back, think about innovations, and see them in action.

A new graphic identity for a forward-looking trade show
For its 26th edition, Expoprotection is adopting a new visual identity that blends the attributes of a strong, innovative brand. Expoprotection is an event dedicated to risk management and to showcasing innovations, and its new visual identity integrates simple, modern codes in contrasting colours, representing the entire DNA of a resolutely forward-looking trade show.
Original concept to anticipate the future
In this spirit, Expoprotection is looking ahead and offering a brand new programme dedicated to long-term forecasting: Expoprotection Tomorrow. The aim is to enable everyone involved in the prevention and management of risks to think about what their professional world will be like in 15 years’ time. New management styles, new ways of organising work, e-prevention, wearable technologies, safe cities, data security, artificial intelligence, cyber risks – experts, researchers, writers and start-up entrepreneurs will be analysing the big changes that are shaking the world of risk management and risk prevention. Some trends, like predictive safety and collaborative security, are still at the embryonic stage, while others are already emerging, such as intelligent textiles, behavioural biometrics, connected objects, drones and robots, e-monitoring/e-health, the Cloud, big data, etc. Expoprotection Tomorrow will take place in two spaces:
The Live: the TV studio for interactive debates The Live programme includes eight high profile talks as well as various discussion forums: keynote speeches, round table discussions, demonstrations, pitches and competitions – and a chance for the public to talk to the speakers.
