“Multi purpose venue”

Palais des Congres de Paris
Ranked #246 of 1,326 things to do in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Excellent venue and quite convenient.
Short walk to city centre. One can easily visit all the attractions by the metro station.
There are lot of designer boutiques inside the conference center. It has many accessible gates as well. Only negative is that the washrooms are located far away and there are not enough numbers.There are a lot of good dining options both inside and around the venue. There is a starbucks near the main entrance. Hyatt is the closest hotel. People are able to hang out just outside the venue as well as there are lots of sitting areas.

Have been here twice now for congresses. Organisation is always very good, (there were in excess of 10,000 delegates I believe) with lots of helpful staff in attendance.
Easy to get to, Metro or Air France bus fro CGD.
The congress centre has a large shopping centre in the basement, including a couple of cafes which are useful as the food outlets in the main congress centre can be very busy

Palais des Congres was a concert hall, convention and exhibition centre and a shopping mall in the 17e of Paris. Very accessible, it was located at the metro station of Porte Maillot.

As this place was close to the hotel we stayed in the Neuilly area, I spent an afternoon here before attending a dinner party in the neighborhood.

The convention centre was opened in the 70s and it looked a bit old from outside. Yet it was a great piece of architecture with jutting out facade and still being a striking feature in the area. The main venues included the TV studio, a 650 seats Amphitheater, and a Grand Amphitheater with the capacity for 3700 people.

I didn't know how busy it was in the daily life, I just found it very spacious,
elegant in a simple way at the main floor. The shopping mall consisted about
100 boutiques, a supermarket, pharmacy and restaurants, shops for furniture,
lighting, home-ware, and a cinema. Not top trendy but ok, you can find brand names here. I had a hot chocolate at the Paul Bakery at the side access level, and sampled some macaroons at the Dalloyau counter which was attached to the supermarket.

Very relaxed window shopping time, however, the mall was very quiet and not all the boutiques opened. Many put the light on with window display but a sign of “close” at the door. It was somehow sad to see business like this in a weekday afternoon ....

Good place for a congress because of the location near the metro station and the city centre as well as the accommodation.
