Occupying 22,000 m² of exhibition space in the heart of the largest green space in Paris, the Parc Floral offers significant advantages. It can host all types of events in its main hall (10,200 m²) and external modular buildings, including public and trade fairs, exhibitions, congresses and evening galas.
This contract should generate some € 60 to € 70 million in sales for the Group (venue management and provision of related services) during its 11-year concession period.
