The 2018 High Tech best-sellers winning new business at the new MedPi

What are the new High Tech products that will ensure the success of the 2nd half-year 2018, between Back to school in September and the new black Friday / cyber Monday / Christmas golden triangle? From 4 to 6 April, in its new Parisian formula, MedPi – the European market for innovative product distribution – will once again bring together brands and their retail partners as it has been doing for the last 24 years.

From 4 to 6 April, new dates well suited to the dynamic of the pace of the sell in for the second half of the year, MedPi will be held for the first time in the Paris Convention Centre, Porte de Versailles. The 2018 event will introduce new services, enriched content and redesigned staging facilitating meetings, exchanges and commercial partnerships.
