As already announced, INDEX23 will take place from April 18 to 21, 2023 in Geneva.

Magali Fakhry, Exhibitions Director at Palexpo, concludes: “It is always heartening to see the willingness of former exhibitors to reserve their stand as soon as possible for the next edition three years in advance, an interval which of course this time, under the circumstances, is shorter for the 2023 edition. The three-year cycle offers an ideal frequency to maintain the momentum and the desire of visitors and exhibitors to live the unique INDEX experience, to reconnect with their business and to rediscover the Geneva landscapes. We look forward to welcoming them back in April 2023 and early spring 2026.”
