The men and women who make up the creators of the MAGAN team are endowed with unique and remarkable talents, driven by the accomplishment of new challenges, they offer their skills and push their creativity beyond their own limits. Everything is masterfully orchestrated and the outcome and much awaited finished project by our clients, reveals an exceptional accomplishment.

Maximilien is the founder and CEO of MAGAN. In his family, photography has been practiced since its invention, and his grandfather was among the first to make films. Maximilien has been a successful entrepreneur since he was 19, when he took over his first business, the family studio, at the helm of the court. He then founded other companies in the PAF and in the exhibition community. Operating in the Emirates since 2015, he built 6 pavilions for the Dubai Universal Expo 2020, two of which were awarded best design by the BIE.

Laurent is Production and Technical Director. He is particularly familiar with the performing arts community and all the material requirements associated with this type of artistic endeavor. This of course requires the logistical support of several hundreds of people, for which he has a obvious talent.

Christophe is the principal constructor for the film industry. He began as a shipwright then became technical director for major exhibitions and various Disney parks around the world. The construction and installation of decors have no secrets for him, especially when these are made of wood.

Jean is a stage manager and chief machinist. He has set up many television and film sets. He also did scenography for museums and for several pavilions of Universal Exhibitions. When it comes to material management or work force management, he is definitely your first choice.

He teaches those subjects in colleges and universities, and has been implementing them in the organization of many events for more than ten years.

Philippe specializes in television and the audiovisual sector. For years, he produced the most popular international and national TV game shows of the major French channels, but he also exercised his talents for music shows, for theatre, and for other works of fiction. The augmented 3D virtual stages he develops are at the forefront of global technology.

Tom was born in England and graduated from the prestigious Chelsea College of Art & Design in London. He has all the necessary skills to carry out our client’s projects. He is not only a chief constructor, but also passionate about technical studies and the construction of sets upstream. As a result of this double experience, he has an immaculate reputation in the audiovisual and event sectors.

Your satisfaction is our ambition.

"We have been working with Magan over the past two years during the build-up to expo 2020, all communications went very smooth and it was great working with such a professional team."


"HISTOVERY is working with Magan to install itinerancy exhibitions over the world. The experience of Magan's team and the quality of the job allows an exiting relation and a success result."


Art Explora a travaillé avec Magan à l’occasion du montage de notre espace au pavillon France de l’expo Dubai2020. Le montage dans un bassin d’une maquette de 4m de long, presque 5m de haut et pesant 1 tonne a été le point d’orgue technique de l’installation. Grâce à leurs expertises et aux études préalables, les équipes ont su réussir ce tour de force sans difficulté.
