A rather old building. Not worth going there for just a visit, unless you attend a conference there.

Palais des Congrès is located in the heart of Paris, an exemplary setting for great events, spectacles and musicals; it's a great amphitheatre for more as 3000 peoples, has conferences rooms, assemblys, lounges, boutiques. Inaugured in 1974 it seems very modern, the construction is coldly and for me a lack of charm, but I'm more cottage or for old constuctions;... More

I cried from the first song to the last, I love it so much. I can't say much about the venue because usually when things go very smoothly you don't notice, so I think it's ok that nothing besides the show stuck in my mind. It was just perfect

Well organized - we were i the biggest theatre with 3700 seats and still everything worked very smoothly. The queues before went quickly, it was easy an quick to get the coats to and from the vestibule and the musical itself was fanstastic! Decors, music, everything!

The most prestigious and tremendous venue I've ever been in! I won't comment on the Swan Lake ballet I attended there. However, I would simply recommend that you don't hesitate in attending whatever show, orchestra or ballet that takes place in Palais des Congrès de Paris, because it's definitely gonna be a high-quality and one-of-a-kind experience!

Went for HR Tech with 3'300 other people. Thrilling big Amphie theatre but pretty chaotic when trying to navigate through all places, rooms etc.

The Palais des Congres is a big, big place with lots of conference rooms of all sizes, the main one sits over 4000 people but the seats are not comfortable, though they look cosy. I would advise that if you're going to spend a day there and are on a budget, buy a sandwich on your way near your hotel,... More
