Between the River Rhône and the Parc de la Tête d'Or, there is an events complex unique in Europe. A “city within a city”, bright, transparent and functional, whose buildings follow the curves of the Rhône. La Cité internationale offers all the elements of a modern city in tune with its surroundings.
The Lyon Convention Centre dominates this complex with its cutting-edge technology and innovative architecture, boasting 25,000 m2, three auditoriums (seating 300, 900 and 3,000 people) and numerous meeting rooms (download the General overview). Fully modular and filled with light, the surface area of the Convention Centre is divided into six forums that operate completely independently (administrative office, bar, conference room, access to delivery area) . The convention centre is also an eco-friendly site with bioclimatic monitoring, solar panels and Green Certification ISO 14 001.
Really close to the city, the complex is easy access with several bus/trolleybus on site and a jetty for the Rhône ferry shuttle in Summer.
