The Lyon Convention Centre is situated at Lyon’s northeast Gateway, between the Tête d’Or Park, the Quai Charles de Gaulle and the Rhône, right on the edge of the city center, near the northern ring road and 5 minutes from a junction connecting with a major European motorway network.

Designed by Renzo Piano, one of the world’s leading contemporary architects, the Cité internationale boasts almost a kilometre of bold facades in the northeast of Lyon, covering a surface area of almost 50 acres.

Despite its modern look and its clean lines, the Cité internationale’s identity is strongly influenced by nature. Nestling between the Parc de la Tête d’Or and the Rhône, the site was designed and completed with an approach geared towards sustainable development and with special attention being paid to public areas and reduced energy consumption.
