To respect our rights and condemn non-compliance with the terms of the agreement, our contact with MCH will now be transferred to the legal realm.
On our side, we calmly focus on our main goal: to satisfy our exhibitors and visitors, so the desire to continue the development of this business we have created together is stronger than any particular individual. From 2012 onwards the show will be in The Geneva Palexpo Exhibition Centre is held, so that our trade fairs will develop in the best conditions in the future.
From the confirmation letter we have received, this scheme has been fully approved by many of our exhibitors.
In the past ten years, the exhibition has developed vigorously. Its success, reputation and spirit will continue to persist. We will adopt the same philosophy, the same spirit, create the same joyful atmosphere, and adapt the modern structure to the exhibitors and visitors. Needs and requirements.
