ParisLocal, the best of Parisian know-how!

Fashion, gastronomy, crafts, art … Paris is a mine of local talent, rethinking their profession around a sustainable and reasoned production, using short distribution channels. So many opportunities to enrich and inspire your incentive and team-building programmes, based on the values of sharing and authenticity.

Although the City of Light has always known how to be appealing, to renew itself and to be inventive, it owes this in large part to the artisans, artists, chefs, and pastry chefs, who are the best ambassadors of the French ‘art of living’. As a city of art and design, Paris has been able to facilitate the revival of these trades, thanks to a welcoming policy on the part of the municipality to relocate production in the city and support the arts and crafts sector.

This idea is becoming more and more popular in the MICE industry, whether it be for a team-building event, an incentive event, or simply to privately hire a craft or production site for a different kind of experience. The opportunity to offer a sensory and creative experience, the chance to discover ancestral know-how and practices revisited by new generations and, most especially, a powerful encounter with people who are keen to share their profession.

To enrich and inspire your incentive and team-building programmes and discover several ambassadors of this new Parisian ‘art of living’, see the webinar ParisLocal, as well as a full list of artisans by theme.

Find below the webinar ‘ParisLocal’:

Recorded at The Distillerie du Viaduc.
