The fifth annual Esprit Meuble furnishings show will take place from 3-6 December at Paris’ Porte de Versailles. Built on the key values of innovation, discussion and creating collaborative business relationships, the annual exhibition prides itself as an international meeting of design professionals.
With more than 300 brands are set to exhibit, alongside such key European brands as Calligaris, Stressless, Epeda, Simmons, Celio and Ménard, Esprit Meuble is poised to set the interior design agenda for 2017 . This year the trade-only show is using themed circuits to direct visitors and emphasize all the initiatives that will take place, with product circuits including bedroom, sitting room and decoration, as well as include space saving, connectivity and French manufacturing.
New for 2016 is concierge service, providing all visitors with a VIP experience allowing them to better navigate Paris and locate key addresses, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the design delights that Paris has to offer. Aiming to highlight the future of service, the event will also provide a concept called The Services Village, creating a space at the heart of the show where 30 exhibitors will focus completely on service providers and value creating solutions. The Services Villages will provide 15-minute coaching sessions over the four days with the aim to ‘add value to distributor-visitors’, with themes set to include assistance with choice and digital tools, financing, guarantee, delivery, merchandising, customer experience in-store and more.
