The map/guide

One of the first things you pick up at the home show (Foire de Paris) is the map. Inside are the times for events, cooking, music, parades, demonstrations, awards, workshops, etc. Certain days have themes from French regions, for children, about food, countries across the sea related to France, etc. All the eateries are listed, exhibitors, dates for the autumn foire (much smaller).

Returns
In December 2014, a law (Article L121-97) was passed to protect the vendors. No returns if you buy something at the trade show. If you do buy something I recommend before you leave the stand have the contact information, guarantees in hand, an invitation to return to the trade show or sign up for an invitation for the following year. No invitations are provided if you buy something at the Concours Lépine.

Accessibility
