Focus on 2014 edition
Believing in the effectiveness of differentiation, METEF-FOUNDEQ has researched and will provide customised solutions for exhibitors, targeted services, and different and effective instruments to promote and realise concrete opportunities for demand and supply at an international level, in the belief that an international event must be able to meet the diverse and varied needs of operators.
