Gourmet Selection celebrates its 10th anniversary from 22 to 23 September 2019 Paris Expo Porte de Versailles

In the space of 10 years, Gourmet Selection has become the must-attend tradeshow for fine food professionals. As the only specialist exhibition offering a range of high-added value gourmet products, it caters to the needs of selective and specialist retail channels, fine food departments and commercial foodservice.

10 years of expertise

Since its first edition in 2009, Gourmet Selection has asserted its role as a showcase of premium products for the food profession with a clear-cut ambition: to stand out as the imperative venue at which producers and retailers come together. Every year, the exhibition welcomes around 4,000 visitors and hosts 350 exhibitors of gourmet delicacies, wines and spirits and everyday or special occasion accessories. Over its two-day duration, professionals meet up and source information from a wealth of top-level special features and talks.

10 years of discoveries

Acting as a barometer for the fine food sector, Gourmet Selection has forged its reputation through its selection of sophisticated products and its audience of qualified visitors and exhibitors. The show rises to the expectations of epicureans who frequent fine food shops, confectionery shops, tea rooms, chocolate shops, wine cellars, lifestyle shops, superstore fine food sections, hotels and restaurants, etc. As a powerful springboard for the visibility and reputation of innovative and quality products, Gourmet Selection will once again strive to reveal the very best in fine food at its 2019 show.

"This anniversary edition is an opportunity to shine a light on the savoir-faire of French and European artisans who occupy pride of place in top-end establishments all over the world." Chantal de Lamotte, exhibition director

Post-show press release - Gourmet Selection 2018

This 6th edition of Gourmet Selection took place on 23 - 24 September 2018 at Porte de Versailles in Paris, its success justifying the decision to be held annually. The only major professional trade event catering to the needs of producers and retailers of gourmet products, this was once again an opportunity to discover refined products with genuine added value, but also learn about all the developments and trends in a fast-growing market (+4% in 2016 and +3% in 2018).
The exhibition placed special emphasis on young companies, with nearly a quarter of exhibitors under two years old or for which it was their first participation at the show.
