2017 Bordeaux, Congresses Place

The scientific and medical world gathers in Bordeaux in 2017

In 2017, Bordeaux Events will welcome fifteen scientific and medical conventions, both national and international, thus contributing to the economic growth of the city.

A dynamic ecosystem for Bordeaux

The city of Bordeaux benefits from the influence of 11 competitiveness clusters and 70 other clusters throughout the Nouvelle Aquitaine region, particularly in the sectors of science and innovation.  It is also home to the University Hospital that was voted the Best Hospital in France 2017 by Le Point magazine. The regional ecosystem can also count on the support of scientific experts who contribute greatly to congress events hosted in Bordeaux.

Ideal facilities

Bordeaux Events offers 4 flagship venues (Bordeaux Exhibition Centre, Bordeaux Congress Centre, Cité Mondiale Convention Centre and Hangar 14), making Bordeaux a prime destination for the organisation of conventions.

The delivery of the new Hall of the Bordeaux Exhibition Centre at the end of 2018, with a capacity of up to 6,000 conference seats, will enrich the offer for event organisers.

Bordeaux, the ideal destination for convention delegates

Bordeaux has all the essential assets to make it THE city for conventions. Besides its cultural and gastronomic heritage, Bordeaux boasts optimal accessibility with an international airport servicing more than 90 direct routes, and the opening on 2 July of the LGV high-speed railway which will link Paris to Bordeaux in just 2 hours and 5 minutes. Hotel accommodation in the city, with a current capacity of 7,500 rooms, will expand thanks to some twenty hotel building projects planned for 2022.
