Visit the early spring trade fairs in Paris

There are lots of great reasons to book a stay at Hotel Royal Cardinal in the first few months of the year. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse for couples to plan a trip to the most romantic city in the world, but did you know that some of the city’s most prestigious trade fairs take place during February and March?

Trade fairs are where professionals get together to show off their products and make contacts, and where visitors get a first glimpse of new concepts in a fun exhibition atmosphere. Some of our favourites for 2015 include the International Exhibition of Agriculture, the 2015 Tourism Show and the Paris Book Fair. There is something to appeal to everyone at each of these superb events, so why not enjoy a family day out during your stay at the hotel?

Trade shows that you won’t want to miss this spring

The International Exhibition of Agriculture takes place from 21st February to 1st March 2105 at Paris Portes de Versailles. It really is a wonderful show, and over 1,050 exhibitors and almost 4,000 animals will take part this year. Four universes explore every facet of agriculture including produce, trades and livestock, and kids can learn all about Filouse, the pretty Flemish Red cow who is the ‘face’ of the 2015 edition of the International Exhibition of Agriculture.

Salon du Tourisme from 19th to 22nd March 2015 also takes place at Portes de Versailles, and it’s just the place to find inspiration for holidays and trips. Explore France and far flung destinations in themed areas and interactive exhibits, and there’s even a Children’s Space to keep the kids occupied while you plan your dream vacation.

The Paris Book Fair is a must for literature fans from 20th to 23rd March 2015 at Paris Porte de Versailles. This year’s guest of honour is Brazil, and over 30 of the country’s authors will attend. Visit the gourmet area where chefs demonstrate delicious recipes from the latest cookery books or let the kids explore the youth area.

Everyone is guaranteed to have a wonderful day out at any of these exciting trade fairs and Paris Porte de Versailles is easy to reach by taxi or metro from Hotel Royal Cardinal.
