Palais des Congrès history

The original Palais des Congrès was designed by French architect Guillaume Gillet, and inaugurated in 1974.

The spectacular 1997-1999 extension of Palais des Congrès was designed by Christian de Portzamparc, a French architect and Pritzker price winner. A white sloping facade and a large cone gave a new look to the building.

The project added space to the existing Palais des Congrès, created exhibition spaces, a new auditorium, new offices as well as extended the shopping mall.

The Palais des Congrès now has 32 000 m2, a flexible 3723 seat auditorium, Le Grand Amphitheater, which can be used for concerts, shows and conventions, three smaller auditoriums and multiple conference rooms. Contiguous to the Palais des Congres, the 137 meter tall Hyatt Regency Etoile provides a spectacular view over the city, the Bois de Boulogne and La Defense. The bar La Vue, located on the 34th floor of the hotel, is open to all.
