The 26th edition of ‘Expoprotection‘, the Trade Show for risk prevention and risk management held in the Paris ‘Parc des Expositions-Porte de Versailles‘ from 7 to 9 November, ended on an extremely successful and dynamic note characterized by growth.

With more than 745 exhibitors, including 298 new entries, the biyearly Show offered a complete panorama of the innovations and inventions from the two complementary sectors of Occupational, Natural and Industrial Risks and Security and Firefighting, increasingly emphasizing Expoprotection‘s role as an event of reference for the market, above all, in Europe. This is all the more so true considering that at this edition, in particular, the international scope of the event was amplified, with more than 40% of the exhibiting companies coming from abroad and representing no fewer than 30 countries. In this context of dynamism and farsightedness, the event wanted to propose a new program dedicated to the Expoprotection Demain, with the aim of offering the main players in prevention and risk management an overview of what will be their occupational universe of reference over the next 15 years to come. All this was expressed in a cycle of eight conferences and discussion forums, as well as through a space dedicated to start-ups and networking.

Always with a focus on innovation characterized by a future-oriented mindset, Expoprotection presented more than 300 new products and innovations at this edition.


Henrik Wiingaard Madsen – AIRTOX

airtox“Our mission is to reinvent safety shoes with products that are characterized by exclusive technologies and a high performance. An exceptional example of this is the innovative Whitelayer anti-perforation material, which has never before been used in the segment of footwear: solid like steel and soft like fabric at the same time, it is two times lighter than Kevlar, as well as breathable and absorbent. Another important innovation is the UTurn fastening system,airtox02 which allows for the rapid opening and closing of fastenings by simple turning a knob either right or left, thus making it perfectly suited to the needs of the most demanding workers. Another leading technology is Acqua-Cell, a membrane that is highly waterproof, while also guaranteeing an incomparable breathability. These technologies guarantee an offer of footwear that is top notch and exclusively developed by our Research and Development department, and not just simply the fruit of collaborations with outside partners. This is because we believe that today’s market of safety requires products that are genuinely innovative and high performance. It is not by chance that our logo refers to the world of extraterrestrials and the technology of the future… Ours is a young company, but we are quickly growing on an international level”.
