WELCOME TO VIRTUALEXPO
What We do
We are a world leader in the online B2B lead generation market. We give businesses of all sizes access to a million specific products in one single place.
Our wide range of product information, constantly updated and highlighting new products and innovations, answers business needs thanks to our powerful search tools.
We attract millions of potential businesses and buyers thanks to SEO and targeted marketing actions. Our specialized online business exhibitions are displayed in 5 languages, soon to expand to 9.
Back in 1999, Corentin Thiercelin, an experienced engineer, noticed the lack of useful tools to help decision-makers in their search for industrial equipment and components.
Using his intuition, Corentin Thiercelin launched DirectIndustry in 2000, the group’s first website, which brings together industry professionals from around the world in a single location.
It was an instant success—millions of visitors rapidly adopted DirectIndustry. Since then, we have extended the concept into other sectors.
Are you a manufacturer, a distributor, a world leader or specialized niche player?
This is the right place for you! We offer MANUFACTURERS a global marketing platform that allows them to exhibit their products, as well as to expand internationally using a range of custom-designed solutions.
Are you a purchaser, architect or engineering team?
You will gain access to a broad spectrum of international offerings, a wealth of product information via different media (videos, high-resolution photos, online catalogues), the latest market developments and new products.
Our goal is to create the best possible tool for connecting international manufacturers with buyers worldwide. Due to the constant evolution of the Internet, innovation and development of new services are our top priorities.
Innovation driven, we focus on the essentials: efficiency, pragmatism and simplicity, without taking ourselves too seriously.

Join our Team of Experts
An atypical company which cultivates its differences…
Since its inception, the company has incarnated, above all else, a dynamic approach and a penchant for innovation.
Despite rapid, significant growth, we strive to maintain our original company culture. We combine the dynamics of a start-up with the solidity of an expanding company. In order to foster a motivating environment for all, we place our team members at the heart of our success.
The absence of a dress code and lack of a rigid hierarchy
A friendly, open-plan work space facilitating communication and a multicultural ambiance make VirtualExpo a Marseille company unlike others…and where it’s pleasant to work
A work environment designed with the well-being of employees in mind
The combination of elements allows each person to carve out a personal space: green walls, an atrium lunch area dotted with olive trees, an exercise room perched on a furnished terrace with a panoramic view, foosball and ping pong tables for relaxation and big poufs for a siesta.
An office that feels a bit like home:
- Be yourself: flip-flops and shorts are welcome!
- An exercise room to unwind and professional massages for relaxation, all just steps away!
- The varied flavors of cleverly improvised lunches carry you to different climes.
- Commuting facilitated by a company policy that encourages carpooling.
- A partnership with a daycare center network to take charge of the little ones!
- A 4.5-day workweek to give people time to recharge their batteries
A socially Engaged Company
The Group has chosen to favor four areas of action.
Each team member can make a concrete, voluntary contribution:
In partnership with the Surfrider Foundation, we carry out regular beach cleanups around Marseille.
In partnership with Solidarité Nouvelle face au chômage (New Solidarity Against Unemployment), about twenty employees have volunteered to work one-on-one with job-seekers to help them find employment.
Employees donate clothing, toys and restaurant coupons, granting a second life to unneeded objects that just take up space at home, and aiding those in need.
