With its fabulous view of the Eiffel tower, Paris Expo is Europe’s largest exhibition venue, ultramodern and functional, capable of adapting to suit any large-scale event.
Paris Expo is an exhibition and convention centre, bordering the ring road at the Porte de Versailles, in the 15th arrondissement of Paris. One of the busiest complexes of its type across Europe and the largest in France, Paris Expo now extends over an area of 35 hectares and welcomes 7.5 million visitors at its facilities every year.
With its fabulous view of the Eiffel Tower, Paris Expo builds on eighty years of experience and international renown. Constructed in 1923 to accommodate the Paris Trade Fair, the site has greatly expanded over the years to now offer almost 228,000 m² of exhibition space within its eight pavilions. Capable of adapting to suit any requirement, the venue facilitates the most audacious and innovative staging designs. An ambitious renovation programme is currently underway to modernise the facilities and works are slated for completion in 2023.
Two competition venues and sport demonstrations zones will be hosted in this state-of-the-art complex. Featuring a new façade in 2024 (designed by architect Dominique Perrault), Paris Expo – Hall I is the largest of the pavilions and will host Handball competitions. Paris Expo – Hall IV will host Table Tennis competitions for the Olympic Games.
Over its nearly century-long history, Paris Expo has been the venue of numerous trade fairs and conventions and now hosts 200 events each year. Some of the largest annual events held on site include the Paris Motor Show, the Paris Book Fair and the International Agriculture Trade Show.
Paris Expo will accommodate the Media Centre of the 2016 UEFA European Championships.
