The official inauguration of FIABCI headquarters took place on Friday March 16, in Paris. This special event started at 3:30 pm with 45 guests enjoying a 360 degree view of Paris from top of Montparnasse Tower. At 4:30 pm, World President Farook Mahmood officially inaugurated FIABCI HQ. This historic moment was followed by a cocktail reception, friendly speeches, delegates contributions and uplifting encouragement from our World President.
Léo Attias, President of FIABCI-France declared: “I welcome this inauguration as a great initiative. We really wanted FIABCI international headquarters to remain in Paris. By buying offices here, the headquarters of FIABCI International are definitely in Paris now. After a very dense, dynamic and interesting week at MIPIM, we have been honoured to welcome the different delegations, together with the emblematic figures of FIABCI, such as Enrico Campagnoli and Laurence McCabe, as well as the World President Farook Mahmood, past and future Presidents. It was indeed a very emotional moment for the history of FIABCI International. Also, to have all these personalities and FIABCI International active members in a mythic and prestigious restaurant such as Le Fouquet’s was the climax of a beautiful inauguration in Paris.”
Indeed, the evening ended at Le Fouquet’s restaurant with an exquisite dinner in a traditional Parisian atmosphere. It was a very pleasant way to finish up an historical and memorable week together.
