1) Can you introduce the French Pavilion?
For over 30 years, the Paris Region Chamber of Commerce and Industry has been organizing collective pavilions, in France or abroad, for French companies that do not wish to exhibit alone. We offer tailor-made stands which are adapted to the client's needs, fully equipped stands, from the smallest (6m²) to the largest. We manage the layout of the pavilion and the stands as well as all logistics, including with the parcel carrier.
