Our Signature Events

Throughout the year, we organize networking events with an unique French touch to help our members build connections. Our signature events are the most prestigious experiences of our agenda.

Gala & Awards Ceremony

Our annual gala is an exclusive evening of premier networking to honor companies or individuals for their special contributions to economic relations between France and the U.S.

During the event, we celebrate friendship between France and the USA while enjoying fine cocktail, dinner, art and surprises. We also honor companies or individuals for their special contributions to economic relations between France and the U.S. In the past years, we have awarded Air France, Nissan North America, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, PSA Peugeot Citroen, General Motors, a Nobel Prize and more exceptional honorees.

In the spirit of engagement and support, a portion of the gala proceeds is granted as scholarships via Le Detroit Scholarship, our program that promotes study in France for business-focused French language student.
