Every two years, Batimat, the international construction fair, gathers a large number of international exhibitors at the Paris-expo Porte in Versailles, near Paris, France. Despite the many visitors and exhibitors at the 23rd edition of the fair in November this year, Batimat drew less attention compared to previous years. This was probably due to the international crisis after the 11 September attacks in New York, US, and not to the fair itself which this year was once more confirmed as the most important event in its sector. About 500 novelties were by exhibitors in the various halls, which were divided into different areas such as Structural Elements, Carpentry, Decoration and NTCI (new information and communication technology). Many events and conferences took place during the exhibition discussing subjects that are extremely important in the field: Ecological Problems, Health, Safety, Comfort, Quality of products and work, Construction and New Information Technology. This year“s Batimat hosted 2,700 exhibitors over a total area of 240,000 square metres. The French Federation for Construction has announced an estimate of growth for the sector for 2001 of 2.6%, should the geopolitical situation remain stable. The next edition of Batimat is scheduled from 3 to 8 November 2003 at the Paris-expo Porte in Versailles.
