Direction Partenariat

The Direction Partenartiat (DP) was responsible for fundraising in the private sector.

Based on the 1995 feasibility study for Expo.01, it was assumed that the private sector would make a sustainable contribution to the total costs of the national exhibition. In the early days of the National Exhibition, this share amounted to around 800 million. The Département Sponsoring questioned this amount, which, based on various indications, it could be assumed that this sum, which had to be acquired, could not be described as realistic.

One of the most important challenges was to find a new form of decentralised sponsor presentation on the Arteplages without having to forego necessary funds from the private sector. Thus, from the very beginning, an advertising-intensive presentation by the private sector was restricted in favour of a uniform, artistically sophisticated overall layout.
