Espritmeuble will return to Paris Porte de Versailles for a fifth edition this December.

Six months before it opens, the show has already recorded reservations for 95% of its exhibition space. The roughly 300 brands confirmed will include the likes of Calligaris, Stressless, Epeda, Simmons, Celio and Ménard, plus newcomers such as Gerlin, Poldem, Airnoval and Baakal & Ross.

According to the show's managerial team – comprising leading manufacturers – a key priority is to increase the time spent by visitors at the show. Consequently, themed routes have been developed to guide visitors and focus on the latest initiatives. Whether product circuits (bedroom, beds, living room, accessories, etc) or themed circuits (space saving, made-to-measure, connectivity, French manufacturing), visitors will be encouraged to utilise the new guidance to better plan their visit.

The fair will also see the addition of the Services Village, run by 30 exhibitors specialising in trade services. Each day the Services Village will offer themed Service Flashes in the form of 15-minute coaching sessions, designed in partnership with service experts. Topics will include digital tools, financing, guarantees, delivery, merchandising and in-store customer experience.
