Beauty, Passion, Sophistication and Style are just some of the many superlatives that the French is synonymous with.
NOOK Asia 2018 is pleased to announce the heralded presence of a pavilion of French-only brands and products especially hand-picked by the organisers of MIF Expo. This collective aims to bring forth the ‘Made-in-France’ ethos to this region and beyond.
CEO & Founder, Ms Fabienne Delahaye, shares her views and insights with Frontpage in an exclusive interview.
Q: What kind of furnishings and decorative accessories can we expect at the Made-in-France Pavilion during NOOK Asia 2018? Will there be a theme for the Pavilion? If so, can you share the rationale behind the theme?
A: All products are related to French « Art de Vivre »: furniture, décor accessories, home linens, fragrances; and also crockery, tableware and cutlery; which have a great value amongst French way of life. All products exhibiting in MIF Expo are carefully sieved out by the organizing team, taking into serious consideration the origin of the products.
Q: How do the French culture and tradition influence the Made-in-France products?
A: France has a long history of crafts dated back to centuries; often pass down from generation to generation within family businesses. Through that, the wealth of French manufacturing is influenced by the French history and its regions.
Q: Why have you decided to participate at NOOK Asia 2018 and what does the Pavilion and French exhibitors hope to achieve through the show?
A: NOOK Asia 2018 represents the gateway to Asian & Oceanian markets which attracts targeted visitors. The show is an opportunity for French companies to develop their international exposure; and meet potential customers who do not participate in European shows.
