Saturday 7 October — CANCELLED
We regret to announce the cancellation of Bloom Where You're Planted 2017, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday, 7 October.
Each year it has been our privilege to welcome new comers to Paris and provide a high quality orientation to living and thriving in this great city. Unfortunately, this year’s event was not coming together with the same organization and quality that we expect and that those new to Paris would require.
Thank you for your understanding.
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 1970, and has become the “must have” book for all English-speaking expats in France. Even if you’re an old hand at living in France, you’re bound to learn new things from the Bloom Book. The 2014 edition of the Bloom Book can be purchased at the American Church in Paris reception desk, the Sunday Welcome Table or online here for 25€.
Attendance at Bloom includes:
- exciting talks presented by expert speakers
- a light breakfast and strong coffee
- a delicious lunch
- wine and cheese reception
- book signings
- networking opportunities
- a gift bag with give-aways and useful information
- copy of the Bloom Book
The Bloom program has become the premier source of information for English-speaking expats in France. Whether you've been living in France for some time already or have just arrived, you’ll enjoy Bloom Where You're Planted.
Don’t Just survive... Thrive!
