Created over 25 years ago, La Cité Nantes Congress Centre has made a name for itself among the top French convention centers. As an economic and cultural tool of global exposure, it actively contributes to the reputation, attractiveness and development of the region.

Conferences, shows, corporate events… La Cité offers original, diversified and sustainable services.

La Cité has instilled a profound spirit of welcome and commitment in its teams whose human values and professionalism are in line with the warmth of the building  (wood, natural light…), making it different.

La Cité pays equal attention to all events and brings its expertise to make each one a unique experience.

Assistance, development, recognition and promotion are our key words for a successful event.
