The season begins strongly with a wide-ranging selection of six major international trade shows. Covering sectors such as gastronomy, jewellery, home design and related products, weddings, and clothing and fashion, these events are sure to provide plenty of interest and opportunity.
The best of gastronomy
The Mer et Vigne (Sea and Vine) trade fair will be at the Parc Floral de Paris Vincennes from September 8th to 11th. This event came about because a Bordeaux wine and cooking enthusiast was eager to share his passion. More than 80% of this year’s exhibitors will be producers and/or manufacturers, thereby honouring the concept of direct supply. This 15th edition brings together 140 exhibitors, artisans, producers, and breeders, inviting you to taste the best of French gastronomy
