The 2019 VSBs-SMES Club
Keen to develop cultural and touristic attractiveness in the region, local businesses are sponsoring A Summer In Le Havre for the third year running. Gathered within the VSBs-SMEs Club – presided by Sophie Szklarek – and supported by the Seine Estuary Chamber of Commerce and Industry, they are patrons of one of the monumental artworks of this popular artistic project. This year, they have decided to sponsor Henrique Oliveira's Sisyphus Casemate, which can be seen at the Jardins Suspendus (green discovery tour).
For Le Havre's 500th anniversary in 2017, there were one thousand Trade Ambassadors. Today, their network still mobilises shop owners, craftsmen, service providers, and independant professionals, gathered to offer a warm welcome to all A Summer In Le Havre visitors. Once again this year, local merchants and the Seine Estuary Chamber of Commerce and Industry will continue to collaborate to promote local trade and develop joint projects during the summer celebrations.
