It’s Summer and Exponantes, manager and operator of the Parc des expositions de Nantes, reaps a harvest of rewards. On the occasion of the large annual congress for professional meetings, the Fédération Foires, Salons, Congrès, Evénements de France (FSCEF) which was held on 5-6 July 2012 in Strasbourg, Exponantes mounted twice on the first step of the podium.
In the lead on Biodiversity
First, Exponantes was awarded the Special Jury Prize for its pathway to Biodiversity (drawing opposite). A commitment to environmental protection and biodiversity initiated in 2008, which reinforces its distinction of being the first European park to obtain ISO 14001 certification. In 2010, the team Exponantes received the Prix de la meilleure démarche RSE (Award for Best CSR approach) during the conference at Cannes.
Frederic Jouët, CEO of Exponantes, was reappointed to chair the commission « Développement Durable et RSE » (Sustainable Development and CSR) and has been re-elected as Administrator of the Federation.
And as one success leads to another, Exponantes also received an award in Strasbourg for the Meilleure Affiche Catégorie Salons Grand public (Best Poster Category Public Trade Fairs) for the Salon de la Réception et du Mariage (Wedding and Reception Show) to be held in Nantes from 26 to 28 October 2012.
The jury emphasized both the originality of the graphic concept, its modernity and elegance in an environment where refinement is the key word. One way to salute the creativity of the team Exponantes, who had already been honoured by winning the poster prize for le salon professionnel du Mobilier en 2011 (furniture trade show in 2011) and that of the poster for la Foire de Nantes (The Nantes Exhibition) in 2009.
