F – This year’s edition of Premium Sourcing was staged amid midsummer temperatures and under a beautiful blue sky – no wonder the visitors were in good spirits. The third edition of the event that is jointly organised by the French publishing company, 656 Editions and the European Sourcing Group took place on September 4-5, 2013 in Paris – however this time at the Feyssinet Hall as a replacement location, because the “regular” venue, the “Cité de la Mode et du Design“ is currently being renovated.
According to the official figures, 130 exhibitors presented their high-quality products at professional uniform stands, which covered around 4,000 m² of exhibition space. 1,719 people from 856 companies visited the trade fair – which corresponds to an increase of 200 visitors compared to the previous year.
The exhibitors particularly praised the excellent organisation and service offered by the organisers as well as the quantity but above all the quality of the visitors – who were exclusively promotional products distributors.
A detailed report will appear in the next issue of eppi magazine, No. 95 (September 25, 2013).
