Beauty Shot

AP offers a spectacular backdrop of the Eiffel Tower for those broadcasters seeking a generic Paris beauty shot for their live transmissions.

Our location is ideal for those seeking to anchor their election coverage. It is also suitable for reporting on developments outside of operational hours at candidate headquarters.

We get you closer to the story

As well as offering facilities at the main candidates' HQs, we will be operational from multiple locations during the campaign.

Polling station:

We will be operational outside a polling station in central Paris for both rounds of voting.

Victory celebrations:

We plan to offer stand-up facilities at celebrations for the winning candidate after results are announced on 7 May.

AP bureau:

Additional facilities are available throughout the campaign at the AP bureau in central Paris, including studios with Paris backdrop and workspace.
