Adventure and Fascination at Imaginarium: The French Chamber Gala Dinner 2017

7 Apr 2017 – Organised in celebration of the dynamic partnership and strong business relations between France and Singapore, the 2017 edition of the French Chamber of Commerce Gala Dinner brought together more than 550 eminent Singaporean and French guests. Themed “Imaginarium“, the evening was a celebration of the power of imagination, an exploration of horizons new, old, unfathomed and uncharted.



Held at the Ritz-Carlton on 7 April 2017, the French Chamber Gala brought together the Singaporean and French business communities under the patronage of our Guests-of-Honour, Ms Sim Ann, Senior Minister of State for Trade & Industry and Culture, Community & Youth, Singapore and H.E. Marc Abensour, Ambassador of France to Singapore.

Imagination is an important force in life and in business, and it is all about having an open mind, a curious eye, an adventurous spirit, a desire to wander around, move and stretch limits. The evening saw an animated array of performances, feats of virtuosity, spectacle and whimsy, each a showcase of creativity in full force, an embrace of the unknown and unfamiliar.

Thanks to the very talented Three-Star Michelin Chef Emmanuel Renaut, our guests experienced some of the finest French cuisine in Singapore, accompanied by delicate French wines by Corney & Barrow and champagne by Perrier-Jouët.

Special thanks also to Mademoiselle PailletteCharmaine and Faizal for the enchanting performances and to Nicolas LavilleBrigitte Varnier and Deboneire for the glamorous fashion show!
