Véronique SESTRIERES

“This 2016 edition is new in a number of ways: new halls, new sector layout, new exhibitor pricing policy, and a new brand identity. It is important to reinvent yourself at each edition to stay close to market changes and remain appealing to buyers. In 2014 we attracted 12% more companies on the visitor side which converts into new business potential for exhibitors. This efficiency is what guides our strategy. And this has produced encouraging results: our customers have bought into the changes and our new sales contacts are impressed. All of this is a fantastic driver for creativity, which also happens to be the tagline for this year’s show – “Let’ be creative!” comments Véronique Sestrières, Director of ALL4PACK Paris (Comexposium Group)
