This years European forum will take place at the Pavillon d’Armenonville in Paris, just a few minutes from Porte Maillot and the Champs-Elysées.
About Pavillon d’Armenonville
In the seventeenth century, the king wanted to extend his hunting land at Rambouillet. He offered an exchange to Fleuriau, the last Seigneur of Armenonville, who was responsible for the royal hunt. The latter built a hunting lodge (Pavillon de chasse) on his new land and gave it his own name. This was demolished in the nineteenth century and rebuilt by a certain Davioud as a restaurant for the riders and carriage drivers who frequented Bois de Boulogne.
Its refined architecture has been preserved and modernised by the installation of technical equipment perfectly suited for events like our European forum.
