These business meetings were organised during the Global Industry trade show in March 2019 in Lyon.  "They provided the opportunity for about 100 organizations from 20 countries to meet," says Lisa Janin, project manager for the Europe & International Office - Enterprise Europe Network, of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Entreprise Agency.


These business meetings are organised by the Agence Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Entreprises and its branch in Haute-Savoie as part of the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), and with the support of the Pôle Mont Blanc Industrie and the Haute-Savoie Chamber of Commerce. This network brings together chambers of commerce and innovation agencies in Europe and internationally, and helps companies develop their innovation and internationalisation potential.


Focus on the economic agency Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Entreprises, partner of SIMODEC 2020


The Haute-Savoie Regional Economic Agency was created in April 2019. It is located in La Roche-sur-Foron (in Rochexpo's offices) to be in the heart of the region.

“As the economic agency of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region, we support the economic development of companies in the regions: innovation, export, HR, financial and digital support," explains Nathalie Rousseau, Coordinator of the Haute-Savoie Economic Sectors, of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Entreprises Agency.


“Our role is also to contribute to the attractiveness of the region for companies from other regions, or even abroad. We are committed to working collectively and to encouraging players to come together.

Being a partner of SIMODEC responds to this logic of partnerships with our ecosystem. It is the largest industrial exhibition in Haute-Savoie. With its international influence, it brings together a large number of companies. Setting up this exchange platform responds to the needs and requests of companies to meet."
