PARIS — Despite persistent economic challenges, trade show organizers in Paris forecast steady attendance for the second half of 2014 as they look to upgrade their presentations to attract buyers.
Many shows under the Paris Capitale de la Création umbrella, the collective that groups many of the French capital’s leading trade shows and events in fashion, accessories and design, are fine-tuning their strategies to attract visitors.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
