An Ateliers d’Art de France event

The fair, the leading economic platform for the heritage sector

The only one of its kind in the world, the International Heritage Fair illustrates the strength of the fine crafts and heritage sector. It is the leading economic and institutional platform dedicated to the cultural heritage community.

More than 300 exhibitors representing over 40 different trades will be on hand in the heart of Paris to meet professionals from the sector, prescribers and suppliers of orders, property owners and heritage enthusiasts.

For 4 days, in the heart of Paris, loyal exhibitors and newcomers represent over 40 heritage professions.

Historically based at the Carrousel du Louvre, the fair brings together all the major stakeholders in the sector: professionals involved in restoring, safeguarding and promoting built and non-built heritage, both tangible and intangible. Every year, nearly 20.000 visitors are able to meet over 300 exhibitors.

In 2024, the fair will be celebrating its 30th anniversary.

A forum for discussion and debate, the fair also stands out for the quality of its programme:

  • A series of over 40 conferences led by experts;
  • Round-table discussions that can be replayed almost instantaneously as part of the Heritage Forum, a TV platform set up at the heart of the fair;
  • Emblematic prizes awarded to professionals working to preserve our heritage and pass it on to future generations.

« Over the years, the fair has established itself as the leading economic and institutional platform dedicated to the cultural heritage community.

Conceived for heritage professionals and enthusiasts, prescribers, property owners, and more., the International Heritage Fair is THE annual meeting place for all those involved in the sector. The impact of the fair represents on average 10% of the annual turnover of our exhibitors, over 90% of whom tell us every year that they would like to take part again.

The increase in the number of visitors to the fair and the growing interest shown by young people in our cultural heritage illustrate the continuing importance of preserving and promoting our fine crafts, our buildings and our historic heritage.

This 30th anniversary of the fair is an opportunity not only to celebrate our history and heritage, but also to look to the future by honouring the ever-evolving professions at the heart of this dynamic sector. »
