Maison&Objet Digital Days: Inspire, Revel & Connect
For 25 years, Maison&Objet, organized by the SAFI (a subsidiary of Ateliers d’Art de France and Reed Expositions France), has led and brought together the international design, home decor, and lifestyle community.
Revealing talents, offering opportunities and inspiration online and offline, stimulating the development of companies, here is the mission of Maison&Objet.
Maison&Objet and More, or MOM, enables buyers and brands to continue their conversations all year round, launch collections and create connections beyond physical meetings.
At a time in which the design, decoration, and lifestyle community would usually be meeting in Paris in January for the physical fairs, Maison&Objet will host 8 weekly themes on its online platform, MOM (Maison&Objet and More), to allow brands to launch their new collections and make the search for products easier, each Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, from January 27-March 19, 2021.
In January 2021, MOM will offer a new feature to facilitate dialogue and contact between brands and buyers: Live Chat. Designed like an instant messaging system, this feature allows the user to chat live with brands during the three days of the Digital Days. Requests for additional information, product sheets, and quotes could be done directly during the 8 weeks. MOM will still allow requests for contacts and lead generation, but the experience will be even more interactive with this new feature.

Each week will be organized by theme to discover new related product launches on MOM. In addition to the virtual brand showrooms, every week from Wednesday to Friday, Maison&Objet will also host product scouting by trend experts, market analysis, and talks on the MOM platform in order to highlight inspirational issues related to the weekly theme.
