For the 1st time yesterday a pop-up store in Antibes opened at the Galerie des Bains Douches on the theme on the theme “Spring’s coming” at the occasion of the JEMA 2017 (European Days of Arts and crafts) that started the same day in all Europe.
The city of Antibes has been rewarded in August 2016 with the label « Ville et Métiers d’art » (City and the Applied Arts) and in the extension of this quality, Antibes in partnership with the Chamber of trade and craftsmen from the Provence-Alpes-Côte region (CMAR PACA) and the Sophia-Antipolis conurbation (CASA) organized this popup store to promote their local Craftsmen.
Antibes has handed the trophy later that day.
The president of the of the CMAR JP. Galvez, the mayor of the city Mr. Leonetti, officials from the Chamber of trade PACA and well as numerous guests actors of the local activity were here to inaugurate the popup store.
And great surprise for me, I have been interviewed by the journalist of channel FR3 for the Côte d’Azur news to express my feeling about this new marketing way!
Here is the Côte d’Azur News FR3 Côte d’Azur of the March 31th 2017 about the JEMA and the popup store.
