It's great to see you here!
avec plaisir - the name is no chance. It is with pleasure that I have been active in trade fair service for more than 20 years. As a graduate engineer, I attach great importance to careful planning and structured processes. These rather "German" virtues are countered by my great love for France and for the French way of life. During a longer stay abroad in Paris, I learned to appreciate the French culture and the charming and creative way in which the French provide their services.
Over the course of time, this developed into the desire to offer tailor-made services with my own company. Since 1998 I have been working in the trade fair service and have at my disposal a broad, inspiring network from all areas related to trade fairs, conferences and events.
On the following pages I would like to give you an insight into the various services of avec plaisir. My team and I look forward to supporting you in your next project.
»We, that is the Aral AG, have been working with avec plaisir for a number of years and are very satisfied with the flexible all-round service offered by Ms. Holtappels. In addition, the friendly avec plaisir hostesses were always an enrichment for our fair appearance in the sense of the brand. The request for the next year is scheduled!«
»avec plaisir has become an integral part of our ARYZTA trade fair team after 14 years and 57 joint trade fairs. This makes it much easier for us to organise trade fairs. Our individual wishes are implemented, even if something changes at short notice. There's nothing "off the shelf" here. The friendly, committed hostesses led by Mrs. Holtappels contribute to the successful public image of our ARYZTA trade fair appearance.«
Alexander Bohny, Senior Communication Manager
Aryzta Food Solutions Ltd.
»We have actually undertaken 19 years of cooperation at our most important trade fair, the PSI in Düsseldorf. I think that speaks for itself. If you are looking for a trade fair service provider who is not only professional, but also absolutely reliable and personal, who advises and supports you individually: avec plaisir is the place to go!«
Jürgen Geiger, Member of the Management Board
»Verena Holtappels and her team offer us absolutely reliable and professional service in all matters concerning the catering of our trade fairs! We will book them again at any time! And we are very happy to recommend them (- of course only for those times when we won't need them ;-)).«
Hilcona Feinkost GmbH
»We have been working with avec plaisir for over 8 years and it is always a pleasure to meet Verena and her team at the A + A Trade Fair in Düsseldorf. Whether for lunch or cocktail parties - Verena and her team always make the difference at our stand. Thanks to their professionalism and attention to detail, our visitors enjoy coming to our stand at lunchtime.«
Bierbaum-Proenen GmbH & Co. KG
»Verena supported us before and during the event in an incredibly competent, reliable and imaginative way. From selecting venues and hotels to planning Expos and Social Events to on-site support and staffing, she has contributed to virtually every aspect of the conference. She was instrumental in making the event one of the best XP Conferences ever, according to participants.«
Nils Wloka, XP Conference Chair
»We needed a high-quality buffet in our office within a few days ... Ms. Holtappels immediately agreed, put together a great selection and then served soooo delicious food with her friendly team that there were no leftovers ...«
Dipl.-Ing., LL.M. Matthias Rößler
