Host your next business meeting or conference in Nantes

Nantes is a bustling university city on the Loire River in western France. Great cuisine, beautiful architecture, and cultural landmarks are just a few elements you can associate with a typical French city. 

But there’s also a quirky side to Nantes that makes any visit instantly memorable, such as l'Île de Versailles Jardin Japonais, a small island featuring a Japanese garden. Another must-see landmark is Le Lieu Unique, a center for contemporary culture housed in a former biscuit factory. 

With the city hosting major events throughout the year focusing on culture, boating, gardening, music, cinema, and the performing arts, there are plenty of opportunities to combine business with pleasure. There is also a broad range of meeting venues in Nantes suited to events for large and small groups.

Perfectly located for both international and domestic business meetings

Nantes is around two hours from Paris on a high-speed train with regular connections to other major European cities. Just 20 minutes from the city center, Nantes Atlantique International Airport offers direct flights to many countries, including Morocco, Tunisia, Italy, Germany, Malta, and the UK.
