This year’s location, Dock Pullman, carries some Parisian history with it. In the 1860’s, the former historic warehouses in Plaine Saint-Denis were used by agricultural and food industry producers to preserve foodstuffs such as wheat, wine, coffee, etc. Today the area is occupied by clothing stores, TV stations, and industrial storage halls.
In 2003, Dock Pullman was transformed into a series of event venues in the heart of the recording studios of Plaine Saint-Denis. Saint-Denis is a commune in the northern suburbs of Paris, which is also home to the famous Stade de France, built for the FIFIA World Cup in 1998.
Transport to the venue will be via bus transfer, leaving from Palais des Congrès on Saturday, 4. November, 2017.
The address of Dock Pullman is:
50 avenue du Président Wilson
93200 La Plaine Saint-Denis
The nearest underground station is Front Populaire – from there it is only a five-minute walk to Dock Pullman.
