Paris - Eiffel Tower

Paris is one of the most recognized capital cities in Europe. Widely known for its cultural and historic landmarks, it is also a significant business center. Paris exhibition venues host international trade shows in all industries.

Wherever staff members are coming from, getting to Paris is easy arriving into Charles DeGaulle or Orly International airports. Access to the city from both airports is available via local (RER) train service, buses and taxis. In the city, taxis are available but the Metro subway and buses are more cost effective.

VAT Symbols

Every exhibit and event manager wants to increase their budget to achieve marketing goals and objectives. Many American companies are missing an opportunity to increase the annual budget by reclaiming Value Added Tax (VAT) or GST (Goods Services Tax) taxes paid on overseas shows.


A Value Added Tax (VAT) is a transaction tax on goods and services charged around the world. The name varies in different countries; you’ll see it listed at VAT, GST, MWST and Consumption Tax.

“Size matters” is no joke when it applies to the height of your exhibit. Safety first is important to every exhibiting company and convention facilities. Trade show managements, professional/industry associations as well as venues across Europe are changing height restrictions, sometimes after the exhibitor service kit has been published. Exhibit managers and  builders may not be advised of the change until they have submitted the exhibit designs for approval. In some cases the association is not aware of a venue height rule change when the exhibitor manual is published.

Holiday Spirit Across The Hemisphere

Love may be considered the international language but holidays transcend cultures around the world.

Although holidays may vary from country to country, celebration of the human spirit is universal. Holidays can be spiritually or historically based, commemorating a special occasion or welcoming in the New Year. Regardless of the reason, who doesn’t enjoy a festive time?

December 2013 marks the end of an era when the Sydney Convention & Exhibition Centre at Darling Harbor closes to make way for a new International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney). The existing facility will be torn down and a new facility built on the same site with a target completion of December 2016. In the interim, the Sydney Exhibition Centre at Glebe Island, with 20,000+ square metres of exhibition space, is available with temporary expansion areas for larger shows. City hotels throughout continue to host exhibitions and conferences.
