Restaurants are being revolutionised to become more responsible, healthy, conceptualised and digitalised.

New regulations, better quality food, sustainable products and equipment, and preventing food and energy waste are major challenges facing the restaurant industry.  

A whole range of events designed around the restaurant industry are on the programme:


The MAIN STAGE (Pavilion 7.2) and the HOSPITALITY & TECH TALKS (Pavilion 7.3) will host a programme of talks and discussions on the issues facing the hospitality industry of the future.

SUSTAINABLE TALKS (Pavilion 4) feature a programme dedicated to CSR.

Landscape architects CHRISTOPHE GAUTRAND and BENJAMIN DESHOULIERES design “delicious plants” using innovative techniques showcased in an unexpected quirky and unique garden.

Highlights : In 2019, Christophe Gautrand & Associés delivered the terrace for the “Parisian Apartment” at the Mandarin Oriental in Paris (1st arrondissement), and created the setting for the Dior Couture reception at K2 Altitude in Courchevel 1850. His current projects include those at Hôtel Coeur de Megève and Hôtel Opéra Cadet (Steller group), a project for the Grand Hôtel du Château de Versailles (LOV group and Alain Ducasse) and the gardens of the Tour Cristal (Allianz group) in Paris (15th arrondissement).

Like every year at EquipHotel, Michelin-starred chefs, young chefs, apprentices and restaurant professionals will go head to head in food and dining service competitions. Don’t miss the Trophée Masse, the Trophée Jean Delaveyne and of course the Chefs en Or competitions.


The furniture chosen by Thierry Virvaire from the collections of expert specialists will offer 140 seats for a unique lunch, in compliance with the regulations in place: we will discover recycled and recyclable products.

The oversized architecture is metallic and raw: circular volumes are set on almost 650sqm, all in contrast with a precious interior decoration: a dominant of powder pink for a lot of clarity and softness and terracotta tones for very natural material effects.

The elegance of the place is evoked by a vegetal universe inspired by the architectural historical lexicon for the exclusive carpets and hangings.
