A CREATIVE, WELCOMING AND RESPONSIBLE CITY

A fast-growing city on the French Atlantic coast, Nantes with its booming economy and thriving cultural scene is one of the new up and coming European destinations.

Known for its eclectic sights and architecture, its dynamism, diverse cultural events and activities, as well as its quality of life recognised by the 2013 European Green Capital label, Nantes regularly comes first of the most liveable cities.

The birthplace of Jules Verne, Nantes has developped a wide range of unusual experiences, combining audacity, imagination and collective spirit. It has become a highly attractive destination for event organisers as they can add a dynamic research community, strong companies and supportive local authorities.

From congresses to corporate meetings, Nantes and La Cité Nantes Congress Centre offer a wide range of imaginative and sustainable solutions for the organisation of professional events. It is therefore no surprise that the Sunday Times once described Nantes as «the loopiest city in France!!».
