Signing of a new venue management contract: the Parc Floral de Paris (contract signed on 7 February 2003 with the City of Paris)
In accordance with its previously announced strategy, Générale Location has strengthened its Venue and Event Management business with the signing of an 8th contract: the Parc Floral de Paris Exhibition Centre.
Occupying 22,000 m² of exhibition space in the heart of the largest green space in Paris, the Parc Floral offers significant advantages. It can host all types of events in its main hall (10,200 m²) and external modular buildings, including public and trade fairs, exhibitions, congresses and evening galas.
This contract should generate some € 60 to € 70 million in sales for the Group (venue management and provision of related services) during its 11-year concession period.
Participation by Générale Location in many events in 2003
As a major world player in the exhibition and event services market, Générale Location is actively involved in the staging of many events each year.
For 2003, in addition to the many recurring repeat events, Générale Location will also be present at the following major events:
- France-Africa Summit (Paris, February)
- G8 Summit (Evian, June)
- World Athletics Championships (Paris, August)
- Rouen Grand Armada (July)
Sales from the above events will compensate for sales generated in 2002 from non-recurring events.
