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.
