The sixth edition of Espritmeuble, which took place in Porte de Versailles from 2nd-5th December, welcomed more than 4000 unique visitors on the Monday of the show. This was a footfall record in one day since the trade fair was first staged in 2012.

The second record was observed on Tuesday with a total of 10,781 unique distributor visitors over four days - with visitor attendance up 6.6% compared with 2016.

This year the central theme chosen by Espritmeuble was Tomorrow’s Store. This offered a good practice guide to accompany French and international visitors in welcoming their customers.

There was also a Tomorrow’s Store gallery spotlighting four flagship themes:

- 'Re-enchantment' with partners Kineti Technologies and Intellicast

- 'Product Enhancement' with partners Innsersens, Kineti Technologies and Home By Me

- 'Customer engagement' with partners Nabl and Trencube

- 'Service increases' with partners Pimp My Room, Ecolix and Sofinco

Tomorrow’s Store was designed with the aim of creating the best possible experience for customers. It has enabled visitors to find out about the new technologies devoted to sales optimisation and customer relations.

For four days visitors were able to appreciate stands with elaborate scenography and greater quality. This year Espritmeuble awarded the prize for the most striking stand to Aquinos in its first year at the trade fair.

Espritmeuble continues to uphold its values of creating a friendly atmosphere whilst focusing on quality and looking towards the future.
