9 Stunning Blank Canvas Venues in Parisby HarryPrince, 22 March 2021
A figure of speech is a handy device. One you might know is the figurative blank canvas: a licence to do anything you want.
In the world of corporate events, a blank canvas venue is literally that. There aren’t any decorations or outstanding features, so it is entirely flexible for an event planner. It can be decorated and transformed in whatever way they choose.
Be the envy of the world by getting to work on a blank canvas venue in Paris. Get to know nine stunning spaces right here and set your imagination alight.
1) Industrial-Style Venue for Receptions and More
The first of our blank canvas venues in Paris is this industrial-style venue. Its stone walls are cool and smooth; the glass roof bathes you in natural light; the glass floor segments are a great touch!
The location is ideal for receptions, art exhibitions, showrooms, press days and photoshoots. It has a maximum capacity of 100 people and a floor space of 130m2.
2) Pop-up Store at the Heart of Parisian Life
If you’re looking for dry hire venues in Paris, discover this pop-up store at the heart of Parisian life. It’s a fully customisable venue that’s ready for you to come in and make your own.
This Parisian heritage building is split over two levels. The ground floor, with its large storefront windows, has up to 60m2 of space. Then there’s the cosy cellar, which could be your lounge bar for the night.
The venue has been renovated to modern standards while still respecting its historical foundations. For example, you’ll still see the wooden roof beams, buttresses and stone walls from a past life.
