In 2019, original hotel concepts have popped up on the scene with the opening of 25Hours and Jo&Joe, alongside a new range of more classic and modern hotels such as the Hôtel de Berri and Courtyard Marriott Gare de Lyon. For the organization of events, options are plentiful this year with the Bridge and its offbeat clubbing offer or the reopening of the Pavillon d'Armenonville, which has a strong ecological ethos.

On the catering scene, the choice includes famous renovated Parisian brasseries such as La Coupole or Le Train Bleu, or new addresses such as the brasserie of the Lutetia or the restaurant Mayo, a convivial spot at the Hyatt Regency Etoile. For a festive reception, head to the Froufrou or the Roxie!

Looking for inspiration for an upcoming teambuilding event? Innovative cooking courses, perfume creation at Fragonard, original escape games, discovery of French savoir faire at immersive workshops with Wecandoo ... there is something for everyone. Finally, for shopping, a trip to Galeries Lafayette or BHV, the Parisian shopping temples, is a must.

Not to miss: the year's major events are featured on the Calendar pages, but the French capital will also be celebrating some special anniversaries, such as the 130th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower.

Edition 2018

On the hotel scene, Maison Fauchon launches its first hotel this summer on Place de la Madeleine … In the Montparnasse district, boutique hotel Niepce Paris opens, with decor reflecting the strong artistic identity of the area.

Think big for your next event, with the newly-opened Paris Convention Centre — the biggest conference centre in Europe with a 5,200-seat plenary hall, or the Palais des Congrès Paris Saclay. Think original with the former bank vault of the Banke Hotel; think jazzy with Secret 8;  think culture with the Atelier des Lumières; or, hover over the French capital with a jetpack flight!

On the shopping scene, Printemps lifts the veil on its Printemps du Goût, a combination of good taste in food and decor with a selection of 100% French products and a 360 ° view over Paris; whilst Galeries Lafayette offers a huge rooftop available for private hire and affording a magical view of Paris.
