With 5 days to go until DISTREE EMEA 2020, we are continuing with our preparations for next week’s show in Monaco. We are very much looking forward to seeing our exhibitors, delegates and partners and thank them for their continued support.


More than 70 exhibitors have confirmed their presence next week and over 2000 One on One meetings have been confirmed between vendors and channel partners attending the show.


We are doing everything we can to ensure the well-being of our participants at DISTREE EMEA 2020.

We continue to follow the latest WHO recommendations and are monitoring any changes closely. As previously communicated, we will provide additional hand cleaning products onsite for the duration of the event.


In light of the current situation, a number of Chinese brands have cancelled their participation but we are pleased to say that those with European entities are sending staff from their local offices to meet with delegates and present their products.
