HOW DID WE BECAME TRADE SHOW EXPERTS?
(We hate cubicles ;)
RELATIONSHIPS ARE WHAT MAKES OUR LIVES BEAUTIFUL
All in life is a matter of timing and meetings. Since the dawn of times, biblical characters, greek or romain mythology ones, our today’s leaders, or each and one of us. Good and bad encounters shape our lives, push us away or take us on a detour to our life path. Behind our encounters a world of possibilies lays before us. These crossroads are these first market places, which have become congresses, forums, fairs. Where all those who have something in common or a common interest meet. But where also sometimes, we miss out on a potential encounter. So why do we do this job? Because we’re humanist and praglmatic. We want to foster transmission, collaboration, exchange, weither it’s for business or not. Our lives have been shaped by our meetings, they may be a chance for you, we just teach you to seize it. 100% of the winners will have tried their luck.
CLUE WE’RE NOT IN WINTER
CAN YOU SPOT THE ERROR IN THE PHOTO
1991 Beginnings in Quebec
It was in 1991 that Douglas, who comes from Vancouver, created what would become face to face marketing. While working for a large American standmaker, he found himself frustrated that the exhibitors did little or no preparation for the shows. And finding that they are wasting time and money for lack of preparation decides to help them.
1992 The Julien & Doug meeting
When we told you that professional meetings are useful. Doug meets Julien, a sales expert, and they never leave each other.
1997 En route for Montréal
The Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce has identified us and we have been partners for over 20 years.
2000 To the USA and beyond
Thanks to the millenium bug? Or warmer climate in february? You’ll guess easily,we moved south, MacCornick place in Chicago, Orlando, Vegas.
2005 Opening towards Asia
François leaves for Asia with Face to Face Marketing in his luggage.
2018 Opening an office in Europe
Ruben met in Montreal in 2014 returns from the USA and takes face to face marketing, his techniques and his North American attitude in his suitcases for the old continent.

With so much time pulling your stands up, we found nothing better than doing actual stand up.
Our 4 consultants and trainers travel the globe to train exhibitors at trade fairs but also professionals in the art of professional dating (we don’t do sentimental dating, sorry, even if we know that some of our clients have found their spouse networking following our advice).
We would be nothing and we would know nothing without experience in the field. Face à face is the story of our lives and it is what we pass on to you and brings you to fairs in America, Asia or Europe.
Because our story is that of our meetings with human beings with our strengths, our weaknesses, our fears and our hopes.
Ok that’s the footer so nothing more to read. Perhaps It’s time to talk about your trade shows?
We don’t bite, we’re actually very nice people. And rest assured, we never force anyone into buying anything. We’re like you, agressive salespeople, we don’t appreciate them, and we had bad experiences with them too.
The only thing we ask of you is to give yourself a chance to shine and succed on trade shows and come back to your office with the feeling of accomplishment.
But before we get there, the best is for us to see if we’re a “match” for each other – we’re like you, we need to feel it in between us.
We’re letting you choose – call us, write us or read this page again if you have time to lose. And before we forget: if you want a leaflet we can of course E-mail it to you if it lowers your anxiety levels so, that you’ll be able to check us out and judge us by the quality of our graphic design, just like if we might judge you as a human being based on your business card…
Do call us – we don’t have your number anyway!
