Starting from 2018 Denim Première Vision, the Paris-based denim trade show, will move to a new location, Le Parc Floral in the South East area of the French capital near Porte de Vincennes.
“We are delighted to announce a new venue in Paris for the next edition of Denim Première Vision, a sublime match between nature and urban: Le Parc Floral,” commented Chantal Malingrey, director of the show, without adding any further comment or reason for the choice.
The show, getting ready to celebrate its 10th anniversary for its upcoming November 14-15, 2017 edition, will take place for the last time at PEC-Paris Event Center, near Parc De la Villette. It has previously changed location in prior seasons. After its debut in Paris in 2007, it took place there until 2014, when it moved to Barcelona and remained there until May 2016. Since November 2016, when it returned to Paris, at PEC, neither exhibitors nor visitors liked the new venue but nonetheless appreciated the homecoming to France.
By choosing to move to Parc Floral, in the 12th arrondisment, in an area that is part of Paris’ botanical garden where various other parks are located, the organization seems keen to operate an overall renovation of the show’s concept by starting to move to more inspiring surroundings for exhibitors and visitors, who are always looking for fresh ideas for their work.
The new dates fixed for Denim PV for 2018 will be May 23-24 and November 15-16.
