EVP over the years

More than 25 years of innovation…

« Espace Voyages Professionnels » (EVP) was created 28 years ago by American Express Voyages d’Affaires.
For the 28th time this year this is still the strategic place to meet the key market players and to share and discuss the key upcoming and ongoing trends, the one integrated in the day to day of European companies.

EVP has quite a history:
  • 1991, the trade show first opened its doors. “Le Baromètre”, a situation report for the sector and a useful tool in gauging the market, appeared. This was a highlight of the trade show and it is now a key source for the sector.

  • In 1997, the trade show unpacked its bags in 4 major French cities to cover broadening market needs. The annual event is continually growing and reaching a wider cross-section of the public. Due to its success, the event has also been duplicated in China, Japan and Brazil. The trade show’s offering has continued to expand and evolve over the years.

  • In 2014, American Express Voyages d’Affaires becomes an independent company: American Express Global Business Travel.

  • In 2018, Julien Kauffmann is the new General Manager / Vice-President of American Express Global Business Travel for France, Benelux and Southern Europe.
The EVP has attracted over 31,000 clients in business travel sector since the first edition and every year we make sure that we fulfill your requirements to always know more about the market evolution.
