World Barter Federation Plans Meeting In Paris
Barter company owners from Europe, Asia, and the Middle East are
having a second meeting on May 1 and 2 in Paris, with two full days
of sharing ideas on the theme of growing the industry in Europe at a
pace that matches the tremendous opportunities there.
The Second Annual Conference on Commercial Barter, �Seizing Growth
Opportunities for Business Trade Networks in Eurasia,� is being
jointly held by the newly organized Assembly of Barter Companies of
Europe, Middle East and Asia, in conjunction with International
Reciprocal Trade Association (IRTA) Europe.
The two-day symposium is being presented by leading experts of trade
exchanges and corporate barter drawn from the fields of management,
marketing, brokering, and technology. This highly valued conference
affords a seminar/discussion setting for trade exchange and
corporate barter executives to learn from theory and concrete
examples how modern trade and barter can leverage a wide variety of
business objectives in the present financial environment. There is
no fee to attend, and non-members of the Assembly or IRTA (Europe)
Included will be some �nuts and bolts� material for new startups.
Providing the group with expert counseling will be veteran Paul
Suplizio, the first executive director of the International
Reciprocal Trade Association. His objective will be to keep the
sessions focused on big picture themes�like building a national
commerce exchange in each country, where will the capital and talent
be coming from, and how it may be sold without going door to door.
The meeting will be held in a fine hotel, thanks to host Maximilien
Urso of Efficio. It�s the Hotel Napoleon within eye-shot of the Arc
d� Triomphe and Champs Elysees, and no doubt there will be a May Day
parade that the attendees will be able to enjoy during their stay in
one of the world�s most beautiful cities.
