Get tips for living and thriving in Paris this October 5th at the 54th Annual Bloom Where You’re Planted—the premier expat orientation seminar. Created for English-speaking expats from around the world, this full-day event is designed to help you make the most of your new life in Paris, as well as create meaningful connections with your new community in the City of Light.
The day will feature keynote speakers and focused seminars offering inspiration and information on topics such as acclimating to the culture, finding the perfect home, navigating the education system, creating a successful business, cooking like the French, and more!
Plus, the extensive Exhibit Hall will connect you with organizations and businesses offering opportunities and services for the expat community. And, of course, an introduction to Parisian life wouldn’t be complete without delicious food and wine, and our day culminates with a wine tasting and networking party.
Childcare and a kids program will be available for children ages 6 months to 12 years.
