Organized by Business France, the national agency in charge of the international development of the French economy, in collaboration with MEREF - CCI France Lebanon (Mouvement des Entreprises et Représentations Economiques Françaises au Liban), a French Pavillion will be created to introduce 18 companies at Project Lebanon. For the 10th consecutive year, France has a strong representation at this fair with its long-term commitment to the region, reinforcing the importance of this annual event in Lebanon. Under the theme of "Creative France", the 18 companies exhibiting will display French innovation and expertise through a variety of industries.
“We are very delighted to once again debut France’s premium products and technologies at the French Pavilion during Project Lebanon. We have long supported the progress of the rebuilding and construction of Lebanon and we’ll continue to cross share innovations through this essential event. We have brought together 18 leading French companies to the pavilion and look forward to exchanging ideas and future business together,” said Marie Maamarie, head of Business France in Lebanon.
The French Pavillion will host a number of companies showcasing their new products and latest technology in the construction and engineering. The categories of companies and products will include building engineering, public works, studies and monitoring, energy management and secure energy, building materials, stretch ceilings, LED lighting products, automation of building openings and closures, home automation products, cable laying and wiring, and banking and insurance services. Project Lebanon which has been running for 23 years, is an International Trade Exhibition for Construction Materials and Equipment for Lebanon and the Middle East, and is the premier event of its kind in the region, bringing together industry leaders from around the world.
In its 2017 edition, 313 exhibitors from 23 countries showcased their latest products and services to 17,639 unique visitors. 2018 will see an increased number of exhibitors and unique visitors. As one of the key partners, the French representation at the fair is one of the most important as representatives of the 18 companies will be meeting with Lebanese counterparts and potential client to exchange ideas and build lasting and fruitful business relations. The event will allow face-to-face networking opportunities with a high-quality audience and will enable participants to establish new contacts, renew existing partnerships, and explore new business opportunities.
