The Centrimex teams at the Rencontres Africa trade show - 06/02/2018

The Centrimex teams at the Rencontres Africa trade show

The Centrimex Group was in Abidjan this October for the Rencontres Africa trade show. The aim of this show was to bring together African and French companies so they could get to know each other, promote dialogue and forge partnerships.

Fréderic Deschamps

Our attendance here was just another example of our Group’s desire to find better and better ways to serve our clients and suppliers. We have recently reinforced our teams in Abidjan, and Mr Frédéric Deschamps is now our Sales Director in the city.   Our Ivory Coast Agency is enjoying great success too. They handle the needs of both suppliers and clients who wish to organise their operations on site.

By setting up this agency, Centrimex has shown its dedication to providing better and better service for our clients in all their markets, while continuing to expand globally.

The Rencontres Africa Trade Show took place in the Abidjan Sofitel, where the atmosphere was calm and focused. Meetings took place over two whole days, a marathon event in which companies both large and small could form partnerships across the African continent. As we heard from the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jean-Yves Le Drian, on the morning of the event, the aim of the event was to create synergies between French expertise and the needs of the continent.  These range from infrastructure and banking all the way to computer systems and professional training. During this show, one of the biggest African transport shows on the continent, we had the opportunity to promote Centrimex’s expertise and cement our reputation on the global stage alongside the largest companies in the sector.
