The first edition of Bien Vivre brought together more than 500 people last year in New York. This year, there is no question of a physical show, but no question either of giving up this event, organized by French Morning with the support of USAFrance Financials. The show therefore becomes Bien Vivre in the United States and will be fully online. It takes place on Saturday, September 12, all day.

The principle remains the same: conferences on subjects that affect the lives of French and French speakers in the United States and individual meetings with experts on a multitude of subjects: taxation, heritage, immigration, food, education, professional life. …

All this takes place on the dedicated Bien Vivre au United States website. You will be able to find the video conferences (which will also be available on Facebook, YouTube or Zoom, depending on the case) as well as the experts with whom you can make an appointment throughout the day for 15-minute sessions, also on video. You will also be able to participate in two workshops, interactive sessions in small groups.

Access to the exhibition and the conferences is completely free. Just register here.
