“In the FBC event "Travailler Ensemble" [you] get to be in contact with companies that are not always [present at] other FBC events. [The] persons we met during this event were [either the] decision makers and we could present our moving services directly to them, or allowed us to be in touch with the decision makers [within] their organizations. In the […] following days, we [held] 3 fruitful meetings. We are happy to have participated [in] this interesting event and proud to have sponsored this FBC activity.” – Christine RIZZATO-CORCODYLOSBusiness Development Manager, GROSPIRON
