Europain & Intersuc 2016, held from 5 to 9 February in Paris, was marked by a creative program consisting of interesting conferences and demonstrations which provided artisans and manufacturers the chance to find ideas to evolve their supply, production, or point of sales.
François Hollande wanted to be present at the fair of European reference for the bakery and pastry sectors. “If I’m here today it’s because I want to once again say how much bakery and pastry represent a force, a history, a pleasure and a future. It is an essential vector of French dynamism and a real export success,” said the President of the French Republic.
A dynamism expressed in the offer of the Salon: 679 exhibitors and brands (26% international from 25 countries), 63,282 professionals (27% international from 137 countries), five demonstration spaces with 140 animations and conferences, and 251 journalists (92 were international).
Three exceptional competitions struck a resonant chord in the stands of the Cube. Coupe du Monde de la Boulangerie, Mondial des Arts Sucrés and the French Schools Cup impassioned and excited the audience, illustrating team spirit and displaying skills, always in search of excellence.
