Rhum Fest Paris 2017 …. and we’re off! With the big reveal of the event poster, the organizers have officially kicked off the 2017 campaign.
After three very successful years, the Rhum Fest Paris organizers are looking forward to their 4th edition. The official poster, unveiled recently on Facebook, gives an idea of this year’s direction. Mark your calendars for 22 and 23 April (public days) and 24 April (professional day). Don’t forget to vote before you start tasting since the 23rd is the first round of the presidential elections. Beware of potential hangovers on the morning of the 24th!
The location is also set: Once again, the Parc Floral in Paris will serve as the venue. The poster design gives a nod to the park and its peacocks that roam freely within its borders and have become official mascots of the festival.
As good Rumporters, we have gleaned some interesting information on the location and can already announce that the exhibition area will be enlarged to what was previously the VIP area, and the number of tickets will be reduced by 25%. The organizers’ objective is to create a more comfortable environment for visitors and to ultimately allow for easier and more in-depth interaction with the exhibitors.
Finally, this year’s title “Route des Arômes” reflects the Rhum Fest team’s desire for a more organoleptic and pedagogical approach – as opposed to just a festival spirit – in order to pay tribute to the impressive rise of our favorite spirit.
Stay tuned for more information as the program unfolds and, in the meantime, we invite you to take advantage of the traditional Christmas promo (on sale here) for a show whose entrance fees have increased slightly to reflect the increase in the range of rum, but also one that the organizers (particularly through promotions like this) want to remain accessible to all passionate consumers.
