“(…) an unmissable event for meeting the entire profession.”
Gilles Colinet, CEO of André Briant Jeunes Plants and Pépinières Jean Huchet
Why are you coming to the Salon du Végétal?
I’m representing two companies at the fair: André Briant Jeunes Plants and Pépinières Jean Huchet. First and foremost, we’re coming to present our plants and meet our customers. Regarding young plants, the fair is very interesting for us because certain exhibitors are also our customers. The Salon du Végétal is an unmissable event for us since it lets us meet the entire profession.
What are you expecting as an exhibitor?
We’re naturally expecting some additional orders. But above all, we wish to meet our customers so we can discuss the season and their requirements for the following year. As for Pépinières Huchet, sometimes we win new customers during the fair.
How do you prepare for the fair?
In advance of the fair, we work on an original presentation for our stand. Obviously, we contact our customers and we invite them to the fair using e-invitations. We mainly communicate digitally.
How do you envisage the post-fair period?
Following the fair, we evaluate feedback from the three days and reach out to the prospects we met.
