Bonjour! Paris may be renowned for its romantic backdrop, picturesque street corners, world-class food, and of course the Tour Eiffel, but it’s also a thriving business hub. France has one of the largest markets in Europe, and Paris is an important financial center in the region, home to the third largest concentration of Fortune Global 500 companies in the world.
So, where to hold your next événement d’entreprise in Paris? Well, you’ve got plenty of options. However, if you’ve ever organized a company event, you’ll know that it’s no mean feat. Getting it right involves a great deal of research and planning. With multiple factors to bear in mind, a successful, smooth-running event depends on the right venue.
Luckily, Paris is home to some of the best conference venues and event spaces in Europe. We’ve compiled a list of the top corporate meeting venues in Paris so you don’t have to spend time searching for the perfect venue. From the 7th to the 11th arrondissement, all locations are reachable by public transport and offer wifi access.
Whether you’re looking for a large conference center or convenient meeting rooms, we’ve got you covered.
What to look for when sourcing a venue
Finding the right event venue involves juggling several factors. First, the venue must accommodate the right number of attendees and have suitable meeting spaces with the right equipment and facilities. The location should also have good transport links (not usually a problem in busy Paris!) and sufficient parking if required.
If you’re hosting a drinks reception or a conference of several days, it’s important to think about food and beverage options, as well as accommodation if required. The overall cost, including any additional fees (important to keep an eye out for hidden costs) will also determine your venue hire.
The venue you ultimately pick will also be determined by the type of event you’re hosting. Some of the events companies hold at corporate meeting venues might include:
- Meetings with clients or customers: a meeting venue can provide a professional setting creating a positive impression and helping to build constructive relationships.
- Internal meetings or training sessions: an external venue can provide a neutral location for team meetings or training sessions, supporting productive discussions and encouraging participation.
- Conferencing or events: the right space can provide the facilities required for larger-scale hybrid events such as seminars, lectures or product launches.
- Team building activities: the ideal location for off-site training or group activities, helping to develop team cohesion and boost morale.
