F – The sixth edition of the Premium Sourcing event took place in the “Docks en Seine – fashion and design city” in Paris on September 14 and 15, 2016. The trade fair that is jointly organised by the French industry service providers, 656 Editions (CTCO) and European Sourcing, once again offered the French industry an established contact platform in the heart of the capital city. According to the organisers as always there was a high share of international suppliers among the around 130 exhibitors, who presented themselves at the show, for whom the Premium Sourcing like the CTCO at the beginning of the year has in the meantime become a must-attend event.
The official attendance figure was not available at the time of going to press, however the event was very well-attended. It is not unrealistic that the target of 1,900 trade visitors that the organisers had set themselves was achieved. In the previous year, 1,740 visitors attended the event in September 2015. The venue date 2017 will be communicated soon.
A detailed report will be published in the coming issue of eppi magazine, No. 113 (October 5, 2016).
