CONCERT & CONVENTION CENTRE AND EXHIBITION CENTRE
- Strasbourg Events, the managing body of the Concert & Convention Centre and of the Exhibition Centre, offers turnkey, customised solutions for meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions, by:
- Concert and Convention Centre, Place de Bordeaux
With its event complex comprising the Concert and Convention Centre and the future Exhibition Centre, Strasbourg is one of the most attractive cities, capable of hosting major conventions and events.
The Helloptimist support system attracts and provides assistance to organisers of events that target European and international audiences.
With the Concert and Convention Centre, Strasbourg Events enhances the attractiveness of Strasbourg by hosting major conventions relating to the competitive clusters Fibres-Energivie, Hydreos, Véhicule du Futur and Biovalley France. The goal is to sharpen Strasbourg's competitive edge on the European and international stage by hosting economic, institutional and cultural events.
In order to meet international standards and respond to the wide variety of conventions and exhibitions, Strasbourg has developed very high quality venues adapted to new technologies, such as the Concert and Convention Centre of Strasbourg (PMC), which was fully renovated in 2016. Its renovation has been accompanied by improvements to its energy performance (with the BBC label for the new parts and the THPE label for the existing parts).
The PMC is now a key venue for conventions and seminars in the Eurometropolis of Strasbourg.
This multi-purpose facility has a surface area of 47,000 sq. metres and includes:
all close to Strasbourg’s city centre.
The new Exhibition Centre, with a total surface area of 58,000 sq. metres, will be opening alongside the Concert and Conference Centre.
Designed by the architect Kengo Kuma, the new Exhibition Centre will be a magnificent facility, both unique and modular in design. With its wood structures and glass windows in perfect symmetry with the Concert and Convention Centre, this event complex will be capable of hosting several events at the same time, or of pooling the two facilities to host extra-large events.
Blending in perfectly in a huge area devoted to conferences, exhibitions and service sector activities, it will meet demanding requirements concerning both functionality and sustainable development, with its attractive aesthetic features ensuring that it helps further enhance Strasbourg’s image as an international metropolitan area. It will feature 5 halls and a car park with 1,000 spaces.
In the meantime, for the past few months there have been two temporary venues on the site, one with an area of 12,500 sq. metres and the other with an area of 4,800 sq. metres, offering a customized solution sized to fit the available space. A temporary exhibition centre has been set up on Rue Fritz Kieffer, where the permanent one will be built. Fully equipped, offering enhanced technical, thermal and aesthetic amenities, it can host any type of event. This new venue, right next to the Concert and Convention Centre, already offers a complementary approach to the way the space is used.
