Waiting for Espritmeuble 2016
published on: 27 maggio 2016
In just four stagings Espritmeuble has been able to establish itself as the essential trade fair on the international circuit for furniture professionals. The fifth staging of the trade fair will be held in Paris, Porte de Versailles from 3 to 6 December 2016 and will welcome 300 exhibitors over an area of 40,000 m2. Espritmeuble was first staged in 2012 on the initiative of 3 French furniture manufacturers. The main objective was to promote the furnishing sector in Paris again and to create a meeting that is exclusively for professionals, a place for discussion and business between manufacturers, brands and distributors. Since then the trade fair has developed, moving from 20,000m2, 130 brands and 5380 professional visitors to 40,000m2, 300 brands and 8742 professional visitors in just 4 years. A great success which has stood the test of time. An international trade fair via its offer with 52% of its exhibitors from abroad, as well as 15% foreign visitors, particularly from Europe, in 2015. A unique occasion for international manufacturers to meet the leading French distribution groups, which will be at the fair and will be exhibiting, to create business opportunities and to open up into the French market. It is a trade fair of manageable size which makes it possible to obtain a closeness to the distribution networks and all the independent distributors. 67% of visitors to the fair are decision-makers and come to Paris to place direct orders for the new collections they will sell.
