About the venue:
Located in the heart of Paris, Hôtel de Talleyrand is a spectacular example of a late 18th century Parisian townhouse, or hôtel particulier. The building and interiors, both superior examples of architecture of the French Enlightenment, were designed between 1767 and 1769 for Louis Phélypeaux, Comte de Saint-Florentin. The townhouse to this day is used for receiving guests at diplomatic meetings, receptions, conferences, and cultural events.
