French Pavilion

Once again, the Pavillon France was a fine showcase for our industry, with 2,200 square metres of floor space, more than 177 exhibitors including 4 regional groups, and visits from 15 foreign delegations.

Why exhibit in the French Pavilion? How do exhibitors feel about it?  Did they achieve their objectives? What were the highlights for them? Will they return to the French Pavilion?

Watch the video testimonials from Jean-François Petitet (Selectarc), Christophe Selliez (Lemer Pax), Patrick Teixeira (SGS France), Olivier Racodon (Fuji Electric France), Cyrille Molina (Oakridge) and Mickaël Chavigneau (SCT Ceramics) for the second season of La Minute Pavillon France.
