Paris: latest developments for events

C&IT looks at some of the latest incentive and venue options in Paris for meeting planners.

Pavilion Seine: Built in 2014, this new floating vessel from luxury caterers Potel & Chabot lends itself to all types of events, including dinners, seminars and product launches. The 800msq boat features a reception lounge and upper deck, hosting up to 400 people for a sit-down dinners and cocktails. In front of the two bespoke bars, guests can admire Paris from comfortable water drop sofas specially designed for the Pavillon Seine.

Back to school: Event agency Paris Hors Piste has devised an activity launching in September, where delegates can test their memories of school by solving some twenty or so clues using school lessons, with skills in maths, French, history and geography, English and the visual arts tested, among other subjects. Every team will be given the necessary equipment to take part, including a school bag full of school books and a road book.

Ateliers du court-métrage: Take part in creative workshops on cinema, led by theatre and cinema, professionals, where groups try their hand at creating a fictional film. Several workshops are available, focusing on cinemania, which takes its inspiration from some of the best 'cinema formulas' to cinemotion workshops including street entertainment.
