The French Salons Immobiliers are some huge, interesting shows hosting thousands of exhibitors and generally set in big cities' Exhibition Centre (Parcs des Expositions or Palais des Congrès). These public events are usually organised in Spring or Autumn and have proved to be very busy.
They have been largely developed all accross the country to provide the widest range of professions, from estate agencies to building companies. Some of the Salons are focused on local French properties and offer info about living in the region, whilst others are national - or even international - exhibitions, especially in Paris.
The best known property show is called Salon de l'Immobilier et de l'Habitat (Real Estate and Housing Exhibition) but it is often split into two smaller events.
The Salon de l'Immobilier is focused on the French property market including real estate agents and property wealth management advisers, as well as banking & financing, building & renovating professionals.
