Capital of the French Riviera and France’s leading international tourist destination after Paris, Nice offers a surprising diversity in terms of culture, heritage, tourism and nature. Between the sea and the mountains, it’s like a natural amphitheatre, ideal for organizing events. Nice is a cosmopolitan, dynamic city, bursting with creative energy, and has a wealth of experience in hosting business meetings, product launches, incentives, etc. Its amenities and urban development projects are all aimed at improving the living environment and accommodation for major events.
Choose Nice for your next event! After 200 years of excellence, Nice has entered a new cycle, a new stage in its evolution based on an outstanding economic and natural environment, first-class amenities and structuring projects.
With its international airport 15 minutes from the city centre, its Conference Centre offering over 30,000 m² of flexible space and a choice of nearly 200 hotels, Nice attracts excellence from the four corners of the earth. Whatever your project, Nice has something for you! Its advantages as a destination lie in the fact that it offers a global package: geographical location, heritage, amenities and the fact that the city is easy to live in.
A further advantage is that the city is so close to the surrounding network of high-tech industries and the leading scientific and medical research centre (Sophia-Antipolis technology park and its universities).
Nice, the conference office and the firms involved in events organization and business tourism are particularly concerned about caring for and preserving the environment, which is a major asset to this outstanding city. They follow an eco-responsible approach and some of them have been awarded labels in recognition of their commitment. The city’s projects and structuring developments are undertaken in the same spirit (Promenade du Paillon, Allianz Riviera Stadium, clean transport, etc.).
