EVENT DESTINATION
O
ur city belongs to the very select club of the top 20 cities in Europe and
the top 30 in the world for conferences, thus experiencing unparalleled
growth which benefits every aspect of the local economy.
This international renown has been built on the diversity and quality of
Lyon’s infrastructure, in which the Lyon Convention Centre plays a leading
role. Beyond the quality of the facilities, the involvement of countless players
also contributes to this growth surge: the city’s different economic partners
are committed to the ONLYLYON approach to develop the city’s economy, its
competitiveness, its international outreach and the quality of its welcoming
capacity.

LYON
A THRIVING CITY, A CITY TO BE EXPERIENCED
O
ur metropolis ranks as the second leading economic centre in France
and the fifth in Europe. These results reflect and sustain Lyon’s economic
pull. This momentum is measured by many factors which cover the five
competitiveness clusters labelled in 2006. The location of leading French
research institutions (CNRS, INSERM) and global manufacturers (Sanofi
Pasteur, bioMérieux, Boiron or Merial) testify to the thriving nature of the
health sector.
Traditional industry is keeping apace with major players in the chemical sector
(Rhodia, Arkema, Bayer Cropscience, etc.) or in the automobile sector (Renault
Trucks, Irisbus or Valeo), not to mention the well-established ICT sector (Atari
or Electronic Arts), all of which boost the success and outreach of our economic
fabric.
International institutions
give Lyon their stamp of
approval
Swayed by these assets, many
international institutions have
chosen the Lyon area as a base
to set up and expand their
renown: Interpol (headquarters
of the International Criminal
Police Organisation), IARC
(the International Agency for
Research on Cancer), the WHO
(World Health Organisation) or
Euronews.

The Confluent Museum
Lyon is essentially a city to be experienced, as confirmed by the sharp rise
in tourism. Inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, Lyon also has a
surprisingly modern slant with major town planning projects, such as Lyon
Confluence which will ultimately triple the capacity of the city centre, and
astonishing cultural diversity: international events are held throughout the
year – the Festival of Lights, the Biennial Danse Festival, the Biennial Festival
of Contemporary Art, Nuits de Fourvière and the Electronic Music Festival (Les
Nuits sonores).
Lyon is also synonymous with the tranquillity of living in a protected
environment (Rhône banks, Parc de la Tête d’Or), the quality and range of its
hotel facilities, the international reputation of its Michelin starred chefs and its
gastronomy which make Lyon above all else, a lifestyle choice…

THE Cité internationale OF Lyon
AN EVENTS COMPLEX WITHOUT A COMPLEX
D
esigned by Renzo Piano, one of the world’s leading contemporary architects,
the Cité internationale boasts almost a kilometre of bold facades in the
northeast of Lyon, covering a surface area of almost 50 acres. Despite its modern
look and its clean lines, the Cité internationale’s identity is strongly influenced
by nature. Nestling between the Parc de la Tête d’Or and the Rhône, the site
was designed and completed with an approach geared towards sustainable
development and with special attention being paid to public areas and reduced
energy consumption.
Here the Lyon Convention Centre has found its home base where our teams
share their expertise. Offering customers a real all in one event complex, we
have gradually become one of the spearheads of business tourism in Lyon and
have enjoyed steady growth, since opening, on all of our markets.

Lyon Convention
Centre
Original design: the Amphitheatre
Inspired by Gallo-Roman amphitheatres, this
amphitheatre is a hemicycle which opens onto
its stage and access areas. Renzo Piano, the
architect, was keen to avoid partitioning the
different areas (seats, stage, foyers, access, etc.).
It is unique in its features combining the assets
of a theatre, a sports hall and a stadium, lending
itself well to alternating professional events
– major conferences and conventions – and
cultural performances - plays, one-man shows,
classical concerts, etc.
The rear of the Amphitheatre stage opens onto
the esplanade; this means that a great many
exterior/interior multi-purpose configurations
can be imagined and participants move through
an ever-changing environment. All these factors
contribute to a remarkable venue in the tradition
of innovative settings such as Berlin Philharmonic
Hall, Madison Square Garden and the Palais
Omnisports de Paris Bercy…

Amphitheatre: see our technical data
