An event planner's guide to Paris
Producing global events means we are privileged to travel to some incredible places and the city of lights was location three of Moody’s Credit Trends. The hybrid event series across ten countries consisted of content on market insights around the globe.
Paris is known for iconic landmarks, culture and croissants – the last being something the events team never fail to take advantage of when visiting.
Pavillion Gabriel – Potel et Chabot
This venue offers an escape into nature in the centre of Paris, being set in the beautiful Champs-Élysées gardens and inspired by greenhouses with plenty of natural light.
The gardens themselves extend from the Arc de Triomphe to the Place de la Concorde, dubbed as the ‘most beautiful avenue in the world’.
Outdoor terraces are the perfect space for a relaxing coffee or networking breaks within the schedule. The team has chosen this venue for the Paris leg of Credit Trends for the past two years.
The Eurostar is a staple mode of transport for our London events team when visiting Paris, and we’ve become accustomed to the joys of such travel, allowing a quick and convenient journey to our neighbouring country.
Taking the Eurostar emits around 6 grams of CO2 per passenger kilometer, compared to 156 grams from a short-haul flight. It’s a chance to put sustainability at the core of a global event. Such decisions have a big impact on the overall carbon footprint of the event series, which we’ve been tracking along the way.
