To be held on September 15 - 17 at the Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord Villepinte, on the outskirts of Paris, this upcoming edition of Première Vision Paris is to be complemented by a Digital Fair taking place on the same dates.

The organisers said the physical edition of the show, of which Première Vision Leather is a part, has been revised and adapted to the current health situation, and a complementary Digital Fair will be held on the same dates. To be hosted and relayed by the Première Vision Marketplace, the virtual show aims to boost the visibility of the exhibitors’ offer to a broader target of international buyers. “We are determined to allow those producers who have placed their trust in us to maintain direct contact with their customers. We quickly took measures in favour of our exhibitors, including easing the general terms and conditions of sale and delayed registrations. As of mid-March, we also began offering our Marketplace services free of charge. Today, we are taking another step forward with new investments in digital technology to complement and multiply the strengths and advantages of the physical event. This is a turn we must all take to support and accelerate the transformation of our industry”, said Gilles Lasbordes, General Manager, Première Vision.

As for the physical edition of the show, the organisers said “a more concentrated seminar programme” has been scheduled and there will be free access to the show and seminars for all visitors who pre-register before August 31.
