Gulp….I had my first experience of the Sial Trade Show last week. Its a bi-annual show held in Paris, that attracts over 150,000 visitors from over 200 countries. Think any UK Trade Show, times it by 10 and that gives an idea of how big it was. The show was spread over 10 halls and was literally gigantic.
I just had two days there…..so got a flavour, but by no means was able to walk the whole show! I was there with DiT [Department of International Trade]…there were about 25 of us who went over from the East of England. It was a hectic couple of days, but really inspiring. I came away having had some excellent meetings, met some great buyers, and having met some fabulous other companies from around the area.
