Event description

Description

BIID members are invited to join President Harriet Forde on this small group tour to experience a streamlined visit to the fair without the hassle of organising an itinerary. This tour will be a great chance for designers that have not attended before to tackle the vast offer under the guidance of the fairs organisers and for members that may have not been in years to reacquaint themselves. We also invite those that are seasoned visitors who would like to attend in a group format to connect with peers and enjoy the fair with friends.

“Maison & Objet is a well thought out design event just outside Paris. The exhibition is a must to visit by interior designers due to the very varied suppliers and inspirational room settings and layouts. The BIID organised group visit made the event very enjoyable. Being able to discuss what we had seen with colleagues and bounce ideas around the group was invaluable.” Past President Gilly Craft on her experience from the January 2019 BIID trip.

WHAT TO EXPECT

There will be the options to travel as a group to Paris or meet us there if you are coming from outside London. Members are invited to wine and dine in Paris on Friday evening followed by a full day at the fair on Saturday starting with a welcome breakfast and highlights presentation from the M&O team. Saturday evening will be spent enjoying the city by night and Sunday is open to guests to either pop back to the fair to pick up anything they missed or head out into the arrondissements to explore. We will have some experiences arranged for the evenings so watch this space for further details and a full itinerary will be supplied to guests upon registration.
