Every year the Foire de Paris takes place in the capital! The largest general interest trade show in Europe brings together hundreds of thousands of visitors to see and try out the latest innovations in consumer goods. Come and enjoy the capital and check out the Paris Fair while staying at our warm and welcoming Hotel Opéra Lafayette.
For well over a century, since 1904, the Paris Fair has taken place every year. In 2017 the venue will again be the Porte de Versailles Exhibition Centre and will run for 13 days from April 27th to May 8th, 2017. This colossal retail event attracts more than 500,000 visitors to view the displays of over 3,500 exhibitors in an area of some 200,000 square metres. Check out the media and partners of the Paris Fair as many offer the chance to win free tickets.
Over the years the Paris Fair has become noted for highlighting innovation while remaining accessible to the general public. Whether you are interested in the latest developments in home and lifestyle; the arts, crafts and cultures of the world; wellbeing, fashion and accessories; leisure; or wine and gastronomy, you are guaranteed to find something to delight you. Two competitions reward inventors and innovation: the Grand Prix of Innovation and the Lépine Competition. This year, for the first time, the public will be able to participate in the Grand Prix of Innovation by voting in the Audience Award.
Staying at the Hotel Opéra Lafayette places you in the heart of Paris, where you will be well placed to enjoy the many attractions of the city following your visit to the Paris Fair. You can enjoy the Montmartre district, the Canal Saint Martin, the Jardin des Tuileries or the Louvre, all just a few Metro stops from the hotel.
