Porte de Versailles - Exhibition Centre
The city's top exhibition centre.
The Parc des Expositions at Porte de Versailles is the venue for many a large-scale event in Paris, including conventions, fairs, shows, seminars, etc.
With over 135 hectares, 44 meeting halls, 3 auditoriums, 8 exhibition halls and over 220 000m² of exhibition space, the Parc des Expositions is one of the largest exhibition centres in the city.
Many of the country's top events are held here: the Paris Fair, the Agriculture Show, the Boat Show, and so on.
The current Parc des Expositions in Paris comprises extensions to the first hall which was built in 1923 to house the Paris Fair. In 1970, the available area was almost doubled with the addition of Hall 7.
Renovated in three stages from 1996 to 2006, today the Paris Exhibition Centre at Porte de Versailles, thanks to its geographical location and its services, is one of the top exhibition centres in Europe.
