.eu supports startups at Salon des Entrepreneurs

Brussels, 5 June 2013 – To promote .eu directly to French SMEs, EURid, the .eu registry, will be partnering with .eu registrar ELB Netissime at Salon des Entrepreneurs, in Lyon, from 12 - 13 June.

Whether you're just starting your business, a franchise candidate, or an entrepreneur, Salon des Entrepreneurs offers a single location where you can get all the information and expertise you need to ensure the success of your venture.

EURid liaison manager, Caroline Goffin, will be on hand at the EURid stand (stand number 405) to explain why .eu, which unites all EU countries under a single European identity, is the domain of choice for European businesses looking to establish or expand their online presence. Visitors will be able to register their .eu domain names on the spot at the same stand with ELB Netissime.
