Saturday 5 October

Bloom Where You're Planted is a full-day orientation seminar designed to help you make the most of your new life in Paris. Created for English-speaking expats from around the world, this seminar provides valuable insights that will enable you and your family to grow and thrive, as well as opportunities for meaningful connections with your new community in the City of Light.

The day will feature keynote speakers and focused seminars offering inspiration and information on topics such as acclimating to the culture, finding the perfect home, navigating the education and healthcare systems, creating a successful business, cooking like the French, and more!

In our extensive Exhibit Hall you will connect with organizations and businesses offering opportunities and services for the expat community. And, of course, an introduction to Parisian life wouldn’t be complete without delicious food and wine as our day culminates with a wine tasting and networking party.

Childcare and a kids program will be available for children ages 6 months to 12 years.

Since 1965, the American Church has sponsored Bloom Where You’re Planted – Tips for Living in France. This full day seminar, designed to assist English-speaking newcomers to France, features speakers and/or workshops on various topics from food and wine tasting to health care and general safety, need-to-know subjects, and just plain fun facts about France. Bloom helps with understanding cultural differences, creating a new life in Paris, and getting connected with friends and organizations throughout Paris and the surrounding areas.

The Bloom book, Bloom Where You’re Planted, Tips for Living in France, has been updated and reprinted regularly since 1965, and has become the “must have” book for all English-speaking expats in France.
