South Paris Arena

South Paris Arena is part of Paris Expo, an exhibition and convention centre that is one of the most active in Europe and most visited in France. Across 35 hectares, 228,000 sqm of exhibition halls and 8 pavilions, Paris Expo welcomes 7.5 million visitors each year, particularly during the International Agricultural Show. With Halls 1, 4 and 6 hosting a large number of the Games’ events and those set aside for Games logistics, Paris Expo will be a major hub for the Paris 2024 Games.

Built in 1923 to host the Paris Trade Fair (Foire de Paris), the complex has been developed extensively over the years and can now adapt for a wide range of requirements and configurations. An ambitious renovation programme, based on three phases over 10 years, with the last one to be completed in 2023, is currently underway to modernise its infrastructure.
