What is the Concours Lépine?

Our French office has long partnered with the Concours Lépine, and our French inventors are lucky to participate in such an event. Lépine is a French invention competition within the Foire de Paris that attracts around 500,000 visitors during the 10-day event. Inventors can showcase or sell their prototypes to Parisians if they have started manufacturing.

In addition, the Concours enjoys great notoriety in France, attracts various media, and allows inventors to benefit from great PR.

Inventor and former SEB senior Product Designer Stéphane Thirouin describes it as “the most effective way to test your innovation with the general public and meet the press to talk about it.”

In addition to being partners, three of our clients have had amazing results and won prestigious medals this year.
