“Great convention center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

The best one in the capital, we go there very year with our company. Great shops around, easy access, fantastic parking, and up you are immediately in the Palais des Congres, cinemas are expenssive, but must place in Paris for the shops also excellent sushis simple downstairs

“convention center with some modetate shopping”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

nothing more to say, really. I can't say that it impressed me... maybe it's a good convention center, that's okay, as for the rest - hmmm, average, definitely.

“Not your typical convention site”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

Being a seasoned conventioneer, mostl convention centers seem to be the same. This one stands out in that there is a mall on floors -1 and 0, with busy name brand shops. On floor -1 there is a superb grocery store with full deli and a wonderful produce section. One can purchase "lunch" food and get away from typical convention fare or fast food. Two or three coffee cafe's (including a Star Bucks) are also available. Comfortable (even a bit cold with air conditioning on high in some rooms) and large rooms.

The one downfall to this center is the restrooms. Smelly and unclean, often out of paper towels.

“proximity to the center”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

Not many congress sites were in the center. This sites has it. Just 2 stops from CDG etoile Metro, walking distance from Champs Elysees, make us very comfortable to attend the congress. We participated in the European Congress on May 2012 in Palais des Congres and found it very comfortable, spacious and enough toilets. The congress has it's hotel and mall in the basement. The hotel connected to the congress site and the mall has lots of shops.

“Convention center with mall in the basement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

Typical of European convention locations, no air conditioning. Hot and humid in the summer. Exhibit hall area spread over 2 floors and small. I found this inconvenient. Poster area was also spread across two main areas. Not many areas for seating or having a meeting. Limited places for sit down food within.
