                    aims to improve consumer satisfaction by running an
                    extensive qualitative and quantitative sociological survey
                    spanning a 1,000-respondent sample. The results will be
                    released at Funéraire Paris 2009.

André Chabot will be at the La Mémoire Nécropolitaine stand signing the first copies of
his “Dictionnaire Illustré de Symbolique Funéraire” (illustrated dictionary of funerary
symbols). La Mémoire Nécropolitaine (Paris) and Mémogrames, Les Éditions de la

from cemeteries around the world.
Mémoire Nécropolitaine will also be organising a photographic exhibition for this event.


Last but not least, FUNÉRAIRE PARIS 2009 will be featuring a 110sqm area focusing on
family-reception architecture, and on an innovative, inviting concept to facilitate family
reunions and promote exchanges and services in “rest” areas, “interaction” areas (books,
audio, video, etc.) and “traces” areas (books, personal items, etc.).
Nathalie Doriac, a young set designer, found
 the challenge exciting: “I really loved working on
 this project. There was a lot of feeling involved,
 especially when I met the people I talked to
 while I was doing my research.” “I wanted to
 submit the project as a “catalogue” that
 professionals could use to pick and mix the
 options that would make their family-reception
 areas smarter and more human, to provide
 three universes where grieving families can get
 together and get back in touch, remember the
 deceased, and live, eat, drink, wait, talk and
 grow.”




INTERNATIONAL VILLAGES AND FOREIGN VISITOR GROUPS
FUNÉRAIRE PARIS 2009 will be featuring international pavilions (Germany, China, Spain,
Finland, the UK, Italy, Poland, Sweden, etc.) to boost exhibitor exposure. It is also
running a reception programme, and a business-matchmaking service for foreign visitors
who want to meet exhibitors.


FUNÉRAIRE PARIS 2009 is intent on addressing all the issues that the trade is dealing with
today, encouraging exchanges, spurring debate and showcasing professional expertise
and creativity in efforts to develop sensible and sensitive services for families.
