ANIMATIONS 2021

SALON VIVRE CÔTÉ SUD 2021

For more than 20 years, the magazine Maisons Côté Sud has come to life at the Vivre Côté Sud trade show that takes place every year in Aix-en-Provence, in this green space, the Parc Jourdan. Due to the health crisis, the 2021 edition will not take place and will be postponed to 2022. Thus, next year, it will propose, as in previous years, the seven themes where the 260 exhibitors and 28,000 visitors will find what they are looking for: Talents, Decors, Creators, Flavors, Garden, Bazaar and Interior Design. During these four days of travel, you will discover a festive atmosphere bringing together decoration enthusiasts who will enjoy regional products, quality materials, and the new trends of the moment, providing a variety of gustatory, tactile and visual pleasures.
If the theme remains the same as the one initially planned for the previous year, it goes without saying that 365 days have passed and our daily actions suggest that we are more sensitive to the preservation of the environment where optimism and a better future will combine.
The theme “Green tomorrow” is intended to echo in everyone’s mind. Mentalities are changing, an awareness of the need to preserve our planet is emerging and the idea of a more responsible future is being created.
Let’s act so that tomorrow’s world will be better. Let’s preserve our wealth and pass it on to future generations who will not hesitate to inspire the next ones. Artisan, manufacturer, trader, consumer, creator … must consider the human in their respect and work with the most beautiful materials and move more towards an ethical and committed production.
Our natural heritage warns us, we respond to it with will and tenacity. From upcycling to recycling, from saving water to greening our travel, from promoting seasonal products to defending the fauna and flora… let’s be actors in our lives.
The Salon Vivre côté Sud showcases the art of living in the South, where local know-how, discoveries and passion come together in a peaceful and sustainable climate. In this spirit, the Vivre Côté Sud trade show will this year highlight scenographies, which will offer an open and oxygenated vision of the garden of tomorrow around responsible practices and experiences.

GOURMET COOKING DEMONSTRATIONS

For many years, the editor-in-chief of Le Coeur des Chefs magazine, Anne Garabedian, has been organizing Côté Sud’s culinary demonstrations.

CONVERSATIONS : DESIGN, ARCHITECTURE, TRENDS… ENRICHING EXCHANGES

The theme Green – Tomorrow will be covered in all directions. Indeed, every year, architects such as Jean-Philippe Nuel, designers such as Christian Ghion, or Serge Bensimon, always in tune with new trends, come to testify about their projects by highlighting the South. This year, other artists will take place on the show to take us on a southern cruise.
