This year at the Paris Motor Show, Citroën is affirming its ‘Inspired by You’ signature more than ever. Its unique ‘La Maison Citroën’ stand concept actually puts the visitor at the heart of the action with a tiered Arena of over 100 seats. Much more than a simple place to relax, this Arena at the heart of the stand will be the setting for regular events throughout the Show with in particular ‘The World of Citroën’, a live, daily performance, but also the ‘Oui Are French’ music festival and a number of experiences allowing the audience to discover everything about Citroën’s world. This is the place to be, guaranteeing a unique experience for visitors!

Every day: ‘The World of Citroën’, the live performance ‘Inspired by You
Played several times a day throughout the Show (at 11:30, 14:30, 17:30 and 20:30 during evening opening), ‘The World of Citroën’ is a live performance (approximately 10 minutes) where a dancer interacts musically with the big screen located on the Arena’s stage. This original performance looks at Citroën’s dynamic and its commercial successes, via its latest addition: New C5 Aircross SUV. It is also the chance to touch upon the festivities planned for next year, on the occasion of the Brand’s centenary…
