Do you like to attend trade fairs, exhibitions, musicals or any other type of events? Then don’t starve yourself of a visit to the largest exhibition centre in Paris, the Palais des Congrès! It was established in 1974 and has hosted countless events of all shapes and sizes ever since. The Grand Amphithéâtre has a total of 3,723 seats, while the Amphithéâtre Bordeaux fits a slightly more intimate audience of 650. The building isn’t like the other exhibition halls of Paris, older and wiser, it is still one of the most important in the capital.
Some huge names from the musical world have graced the stage here; Ray Charles, Elton John, Alicia Keys and Bob Dylan, have all brought some of their magic to the people of Paris. From the world of dance, Michael Flatley has also brought his lightning footwork with his show the Lord of the Dance in the past. No matter the event, this huge building creates a very special atmosphere for everyone who visits. There is also a shopping gallery with brands, such as Lacoste, Boss or Gap, as well as a UGC cinema and various restaurants.
But before you get in your car and race off to the Palais, there are a few things to consider. Firstly, the search for parking in front of the exhibition halls can be quite difficult and secondly, congestion on the route in is a pretty frequent occurrence, especially when a popular event is taking place, as is so often the case.
The simplest solution is to park your car in a secure car park in the centre of Paris and carry on to the Palais by train. Found in the 17th arrondissement, it is well connected with public transport. Gare de Neuilly - Porte Maillot, which connects with RER line C and Metro line 1, is only a few minutes' walk from the convention centre.
