Valenciennes is accessible from all over Europe with no fewer than five international airports within easy reach, a TGV line for Paris (high-speed train) and the Eurostar nearby not to mention a dense motorway network.

Welcome to one of France's youngest metropolitan areas. A welcoming, dynamic and fast changing area with an outstanding business culture. Our Congress & Seminar Department is on hand to help you organise your seminars, colloquiums or company meetings.


Whether you are planning to launch a new product, organise a meeting for different technical staff, to thank your clients or your salesforce, or to plan an annual general meeting, the Congress & Seminar Department can meet your needs, accurately identifying your requirements to propose the solutions best adapted to them.

The finalisation of your project will include the negotiation of meeting rooms or workshops and the accompanying services such as the reservation of hotel bedrooms, caterers or hospitality and security services, all just a stone's throw from Valenciennes town centre. A fixed-price "all in" quote can be sent to you on request.

Your stay in the Valenciennes area can also include a city tour narrated by a guide from the Tourist Office or other recreational activities to round off your stay nicely.

Consequently you can enjoy the varied urban heritage of Valenciennes or discover the peaceful beauty of one of our villages to fully appreciate its rural and natural attractions.
