It was the first convention centre in France, and it is one of the most remarkable heritage sites in Versailles. Constructed in 1967 in a discreet style, its architectural style is handed down from the 17th Century, and it is at the head of the famous “Trident”.
Now with 3,200m² organised into adaptable spaces equipped with the latest technology, it can host events 7 days a week, for 20 to 1,500 people. Everything can be reorganised to help organise your events: meetings, congresses, seminars, conventions, trade shows, and cultural events.
