September 2007, the world vibrates with the Rugby World Cup... Direction the South of France where the Marseille International Fair takes place every year. During eleven days, with 400, 000 visitors and more than 1, 300 French and international exhibitors, the Fair is the not-to-be-missed event of the month.
