Postponed several times because of lockdown and coronavirus, the Foire de Paris and the Concours Lépine will not take place in 2020. Both events are postponed to 2021.

Postponed over and over again, the Foire de Paris is ultimately cancelled for 2020. The event was said to take place at the same time as the Foire d'automne, cancelled as well, and is postponed to April 29 to May 10, 2021. Organizers are sorry to cancel but prefer remaining vigilant because of the pandemic. In order to keep everybody safe in these difficult health times, and to respect all the guidelines implemented, the Foire de Paris organizers have decided to cancel the edition 2020 to focus on the next one.

How does the Foire de Paris and the Concours Lépine usually take place? For 10 days, the Parc des Expositions de Paris - Versailles becomes France's biggest shopping mall from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

You and over 1,700 exhibitors covering 220,000 sqm are expected to discover home decor, home and living stands, crafts, ready-to-wear and gastronomy stands (yummy!).

And to welcome us during the 2019 edition, a star: Stéphane Plaza who is no one else but the ambassador. More than an average sponsor, the French TV host and realtor will be present for several days to advise us!

It's simple, the Foire de Paris is the absolute reference in terms of housing: we discover trends, innovations, we talk with indoor designers, artisans and big brands' representatives.

The show features 3 universes:

  • Home and Living
    An offer unlike any other in Europe. Fromthe ground to the roof, without forgetting windows, verandas, stairs, chimneys and swimming pools, you'll discover artisans for all you need: indoor, structural works and decoration, without forgetting smart homes - geeks' new house whim.

    By the way, it's at the Foire de Paris that tomorrow's innovations - including some presented for the LEPINE innovation contest (celebrating its 118 anniversary this year) - are presented, others are awarded a Grand Prix de l'Innovation and this year, as part of the Start Up Boost by Foire de Paris award, an award enabling 12 start-ups to present their prototypes ot the public in a 9-sqm area offered by the Foire. 

  • Wine and Cuisine
    Discover new flavors and senses in the Wine and Cuisine area, which is sure to make your mouth water! There will be restaurants, tastings and other surprises awaiting you in this scrumptious universe.

  • Art Occupations and Cultures of the World
    A truly exotic exploration of different cultures, with sectors full of events and activities (the Tropics festival, for example) where you can experience artisanal and local products and international cuisine. 

Foire de Paris offers your a reference for all types of home embellishments thanks to hundreds of professionals from all over France to answer your questions. Note that for the first time, a Flower Market will be set up in partnership with Green Rungis, a wonderful occasion to bring some green ro youf house with plants and flowers. 

The success of the Foire de Paris is such that every year, 50,000 visitors run to it and 90% of them buy at least one product, from an item useful on a daily basis (or something from the delicatessen) to a kitchen at one of the kitchen fitters on the spot!

In addition to this great discovery market, the Foire de Paris is the place for dozens of free animations, every day features a different program. All in all, hundreds of animations & workshops, parades, concerts and unforgettable shows.

There will be an array of activities for children every day so that parents can make their purchases without having to leave the little ones at home. Jumpy houses, play structures, without forgetting the very plaful workshops to discover soon.

This event is so big that it takes up almost the entire space at the Parc des Expositions. To make the most of it, a concierge service will make your day even easier, by offering a free holding service for your items all day long, and even bringing them out to your car or delivering them right to your home (fee for delivery.)

In other words, an unmissable event to find the latest trends, treat you and find good ideas.
