Tradexpo | Organized by GL events Exhibitions

Organised by GL events Exhibitions, Tradexpo took place from 14 to 18 January 2011 at the Paris-Le Bourget exhibition park and presented some original new ideas for its 51st edition.

Tradexpo, the showcase for the latest retail products at attractive prices, presented some original new ideas for its 51st anniversary from 14 to 18 January 2011 at the Bourget Exhibition Park.
Almost 280 importers and manufacturers (including over 40 new exhibitors) presented their products across the 4 sections of the fair:
Inside by Tradexpo
Jouets by Tradexpo (toys)
Outside by Tradexpo
Destock’ by Tradexpo

Tradexpo is a genuine “business accelerator”, bringing exhibitors face to face with some 11,000 buyers, representing some of the most demanding and dynamic players in the market.

As the only event in France devoted exclusively to non-food retail distribution, Tradexpo is first and foremost a specialist fair, providing the different market players with a unique negotiating environment, as well as an effective means for optimising and developing their business activity.

For this year’s event, the fair provided its visitors with a unique tool to support their product purchasing, and which will enable them to make a difference in the market: the Trend Book. Developed in partnership with Carlin International, this book is a genuine inventory of the latest trends for 2011 in the 4 different sections presented at the fair.

May 2011... strategic reorganisation
From 15 to 18 May, take advantage of Tradexpo’s new format with 4 distinct sections and discover an even more comprehensive range of quality products presented by manufacturers and/or importers.
