ABOUT THE EVENT
How about traveling to France without airport hustle, jet lag,...etc? This event is a showcase of France and French culture. In this respect, this particular event is themed 'La rentrée'.
'La rentrée' in France
The word shows up in all kinds of contexts, from the la rentrée politique when the government heads back to Paris to la Rentrée du Cinéma for when the more serious fare kicks summer blockbusters out of the theaters.
But the French take La Rentrée scolaire the most seriously of all, from lengthy news reports on how heavy a child's schoolbag, le cartable, should be to the announcement of the first teacher's strike of the school year.
ABOUT THE EVENT
This is NOT a wine tasting event as such. However, it is all-you-can-drink French Wines Event (few selected French wines though).
- We will meet and socialize with French professionals, business people and diplomates at the Event
- French Dessert Buffet
- We will have an Open Bar featuring French wines & drinks.
- The Event is a Stand Up Reception. However, if you need to be seated for medical reasons or if you need a handicap access, please let us know 24 hours before the Event, so that we can arrange.
- The Event is not a dancing event.

We organized this event, in collaboration with the Embassy and The French-American Chamber of Commerce (We are proudly a member).
