The New Route

The New Route

The date is set.
The next edition of the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows, will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th January 2016 at Porte de Versailles.

In the midst of its extensive renovation work, the Paris Expo – Porte de Versailles is keeping its doors open for events. This ambitious modernisation project aims to strengthen the role that Paris holds as tourism market leader with regards to international business.
The first phase of the renovation concerns halls 1 and 7, the main entrance and the central walkway with the creation of travelators between hall 3 and 4.

In line with this situation, WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE are having to evolve and transform. The areas are being rethought, reworked, to offer a more fluid experience, a clearer display of the trade shows’ offer.

By joining forces with Studio GGSV (Curator of the Saint-Etienne Design Biennial 2013) the trade shows guarantee a quality setting and optimal space layout.

WHO'S NEXT & PREMIERE CLASSE - 22-25 JAN. 2016
The plan is set out in a star shape, to create a more compact spread, a more accessible and practical route and to show off all areas of the trade shows in equal measure.

Therefore the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows are set out around the central walkway at the Parc des Expositions.

In the same style as previous editions, the WHO’S NEXT offer is divided up into 5 different areas:
