2023 new features

The 2023 edition is a turning point for the show with several new features

A new graphic identity

The new identity of the show starts with a new logo: it shows the dynamism of the expo with its bright colours. The cross identifies as a crossroad, the aisles of the show and all the meetings. Simple and easy to understand, its modern design is recognizable.

A new hall

Franchise Expo Paris is moving out of its traditional pavilions 2.2 and 3, into the iconic pavilion 1 of Paris Porte de Versailles. The hall is larger and will improve the tradeshow's visibility while also offering a more uniform exhibition space.

A new sectorised floor plan

A sectorised layout design has been introduced to clarify the range of opportunitoes offered by exhibitors to the visitors interested in launching their business. The exhibitors are divided into 10 main zones, seperated by wide central aisles, and arranged in such a way as to improve and distribute visitor footfall at the show and offer visibility to all sectors.
