Founded in January 2018, COFREX (French Exhibition Company) is a publicly owned simplified joint-stock company. Its creation was a turning point for French involvement at international events for the general public, as it was the first time that an expert body had been put together in this area. Its aim is to prepare, organise and oversee France’s participation in universal and international Exhibitions. 

COFREX’s creation is part of a sustainable, long-term project to use the experience of previous Expos in order to perfectly and cost-effectively organise France’s involvement at World Expos and other international exhibitions. Its role falls under the rationale of partnership between public and private operators working to boost France’s image and international appeal.
