Maison & Objet Americas Second Trade Show
Founded in Paris in 1995, the event gathers over 160.000 visitors each year in the French capital and thus represents a substantial growth lever for the attending brand, as well as an innovative showcase.
According to the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the show generated over EUR 330 million in terms of economic impacts for the country. It also contributed to the creation of 5500 full-time jobs. Its growing success provides a real potential: a 350 000m2 project in the long run, ranking the event at the 3rd position of the biggest exhibition centers, after the Hannover Show and the international Expo Milan 2015.
The event also contributed to the booking of over 12.000 hotel rooms in the park’s surroundings.
Every year, the show highlights the most talented French artists, such as the designer and architect Philippe Starck, internationally recognized for his industrial design as well as for his regular consumption goods.
Maison & Objet well and truly reaffirms France’s leading position in the field of new technologies and innovations.
