The global hub for heavy and light commercial vehicles

Solutrans is the meeting place for road and urban transport professionals. It is held every two years at Eurexpo Lyon, France. The next edition will take place from November 18 to 22, 2025.

As a world crossroads for innovation, Solutrans presents the most relevant solutions to the evolution of the truck industry and the industrial and urban vehicles. This sector is one of the most innovative, from industry to services, and the trade show offers a real showcase for the performance of vehicle manufacturers, bodybuilders, fitters, equipment manufacturers, workshop equipment manufacturers, tire professionals, and distribution networks.

The event brings together 1,100 exhibitors and brands (see the list of exhibitors in 2023) and 64,000 professional visitors from all over the world. The 2023 edition welcomed a  24% of its visitors also from outside France from 128 countries, which is three times more international visitors than in 2021, notably from Italy, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Turkey, Switzerland, the Netherlands, etc. Several Promosalons offices (Germany, Belgium, Spain, the Gulf States, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland) are working with the show to promote visitors, while other countries such as Turkey and Korea are recruiting exhibitors.

The 2023 edition reflected the major changes in road transportation: revolution in uses, energy transition, global regulatory framework, changes in the fleet of commercial and industrial vehicles… Five major themes were highlighted:

  • Urban deliveries: Alternative delivery modes for an increasingly restrictive city centre
  • New Energies: Diversifying powertrains, an economic and environmental challenge
  • Tires: positive impact casings at the hearts of industry issues
  • Retrofit: Improving what already exists, an economical and ecological option
  • Embedded intelligence: supporting the sector towards self-driving

Owned by the FFC (Fédération Française de Carrosserie), Solutrans is organized by Comexposium.
