First called EXPOMAT, the exhibition was initially held at the Paris – Le Bourget Airport. The show only became INTERMAT in 1988 when it took place at Parc des Expositions de Villepinte for the very first time.

This trade exhibition is organised by CISMA and Seimat, French professional trade unions for the equipment industry, together with Comexposium, a French trade show organiser.

During the last exhibition, held in 2012, INTERMAT gathered together 1,350 exhibitors, 67% international, and more than 200,000 visitors ― including 145,082 identified trade visitors (up 15.8% on 2009), 34.2% international[2]

Several manufacturers display their construction machinery and equipment in a dedicated outdoor demonstration area called PARIS Demos, providing the opportunity to highlight machinery and equipment performance in simulated working conditions. The programme includes demonstrations of site machinery: backhoe loaders, mechanical diggers, mini-excavators, loaders and graders.
