VAT on organising exhibition in France

I am faced with a dilemma regarding the VAT in France. I am a UK VAT registered business and recently organized an small exhibition in France with regards to my business. I am not registered in for VAT or TVA in France. As I understood under the EU directive a supplier in France who invoices a UK business (B2B) should account for VAT under the reverse charge system. Not as part of the exhibition we paid for the venue, catering, cleaning etc etc The local company who arranged for these will be involving my company for the venue/cleaning/sound etc without VAT ie account under reverse charge but is insisting that the catering should include French VAT. Is this correct as I would have thought the catering is incidental to the main event which is organizing the exhibition so should not include French vat also. What do you think?
