Lyon: venues for all event types

The French city of Lyon is renowned as the worldwide capital of gastronomy but it also offers a host of cultural and historical-themed venues for events.

Meetings with a modern twist
The St Priest Chateau's architecture blends modernity with history, with a metal and glass-roofed conservatory that encircles its original facades. Renovated last year, the Saint-Priest Castle dominates a 2.5 hectare garden with its 760 m2 of modular space which makes it a venue that is suitable for all types of events, including meetings, gala evenings and product launches. It caters for up to 350 for dining and up to 600 across two floors for a cocktail reception.

Events on a grand scale 
Espace Tete D’or Congress Centre is located in the city, next to Lyon’s Tête D’Or Public Park. Its one level facility offers 250 to 2400 sqm of space, suited to congresses and conferences.

Hotel meetings

The four-star Hotel de la Cite Concorde Lyon offers 164 rooms and meeting space catering for up to 90 people, with several smaller breakout rooms hosting groups of up to six. 

Food and history

Brasserie George is a Lyon institution, with the restaurant known both as a historic monument and for its food. It has two event spaces offering 200 sqm of space, seating up to 80.
