Paris, France

Pan Europe Pacific Conference

5 - 12 July 2017

Paris is nothing short of magical. With spring time comes the blossoming of flowers and the opportunity to ride bicycles through cobblestone streets feeling the cool air brush past you. From bakeries and patisseries to cheese shops, cafes and restaurants, there is something delicious and tantalizing to any palate, most of which can be complemented with a full-bodied French wine.

You could say that Paris has it all and exquisite culinary options are just the beginning. Iconic architecture, modern art galleries, famous museums, stylish boutiques and haute couture houses abound, prompting a thirst in those that visit to try and do it all’. Of course this is impossible, which is why visitors return to explore and rediscover Paris again and again!

To make the most of your Parisian experience, we recommend not only taking the time to tour the famous and architecturally stunning sites of the city, but also journey through the maze of markets, shopping districts, art museums and clubs that the city holds.

As a major cog in the engine of the global economy, Paris allows delegates a platform with which to further learning in economics, law, politics and medicine, and thus, has remained a staple in the CPE Conference calendar for 16 years!

Conference Venue

The Westin-Paris Vendôme is centrally located in Paris’ frst arrondissement and makes it easy for guests
to combine shopping, sightseeing and business. The hotel is only a 10 minute walk to Concorde, the
Lourve Museum and the Place Vendôme.

Including breathtaking city views over the Tuileries Garden and The Eiffel Tower, each of the rooms and
suites combine Parisian flair with modern design. With enough space for you to work or unwind, both
the Superior and Deluxe Rooms are ideal for business or leisure. Their fresh and contemporary design
combined guarantees comfort and wellbeing from day to night, work to play, activity to relaxation.
This Westin-Paris Vendôme has the amenities one comes to expect from a 5-star property; restaurant
boudoir le First, welcomes you for all meals, from breakfast to a savory gastronomic dinner. Pamper
yourself at Spa Six Senses or experience a haven of tranquility on our Terrace, or an afternoon tea in the
Tuileries bar

Social Agenda

Our conference structures numerous social events to allow for networking in relaxed settings. We encourage all delegates to attend the social events as the information exchange is deemed invaluable by many participants as well as it being an opportunity for you to discover more of this exciting conference location.

Both conference attendees and accompanying persons can take part in all activities. Separate fees may apply.

The city’s rooftops, terraces and riversides welcome chic crowds with an abundance of entertainment and dining optionsThere are some activities that are must-dos in Paris, and will be organised by the conference team, for example: a night at the magnifcent Paris L’Opera, guided tours of Musée du Louvre and the Musée D’Orsay and a day trip to Champagne to experience the region’s wonderful produce and wines.

Academic Program and Accreditation

All  sessions are conducted by practitioners and leading academics, however our program structure is unique to CPE Conferences. Over the last 20 years we have adopted a model that allows us to accommodate local and VIP speakers whom, due to professional demands were unable to confirm their availability, would otherwise be unable to share their international perspective.

In addition to these sessions, our previous Paris Conference's have held multiple academic field activities, including a private guided tour to the OECD office and the Association et Musée Maison Jean Monnet, which allowed our delegates to obtain additional professional knowledge through engagement and unique location based excursions.
