This is the biggest exhibition space in Paris, and the seventh biggest in Europe, with 220,000 m² available over eight halls and over 6 million annual visitors.
It is also the site for the projected new 'Triangle' building, the first Parisian skyscraper to rise above the habitual 37-metre limits for decades.
Getting to the Porte de Versailles exhibition park has been made easier in the last few years with the addition of a tramway line (the metro alreday stops there) and a second is due to open in the next few years.
Its location on the south-western outskirts of Paris also makes access to Orly airport simple.

Ed van der Elsken Camera in Love
A must-see at the Jeu de Paume
If you love photography, then you will surely love the exhibition “Camera in Love” which is hosted by the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume from June 13 to September 24, 2017.
The exhibition showcases the works of Ed van der Elsken who is widely considered one of the most famous Dutch photographers of the 20th century.
The show aims to reveal the poetic nature of Ed van der Elsken, his solidarity with others and the empathy that he showed towards all living creatures. It spotlights a large selection of his iconic photographs which he captured in the streets of Paris in the 1950s and on his trips to Amsterdam, Hong Kong, and Tokyo in the 1960s. It also features some of his books and excerpts from his movies.
