Natural lighting and modular space

Perfect for your congresses and professional events

Bordeaux Congress Centre, located in the Bordeaux Lac business district, features contemporary architecture and natural lighting. The center offers complementary exhibition areas, meeting rooms and auditoriums, making it the ideal location for your congresses, seminars, symposiums, business meetings and shows. It can also be adapted to host your professional trade shows and/or gala evenings. The venue’s large surface area, high ceilings, well-ventilated circulation areas, and natural lighting makes visitors feel like they are outdoors, while enjoying all the comforts of modern facilities.

We are delighted to have chosen Bordeaux Congress Centre, which lends itself perfectly to organising a congress. It is spacious and beautiful, with high ceilings and good ventilation. Many delegates commented on how well the event was organised. We had all the space we needed to comply with social distancing regulations and the Bordeaux Events team was very attentive
