20-hectare fairground

Considered one of the most beautiful event venues in France, Exponantes welcomes the public in a landscaped 20-hectare fairground located on the banks of the Erdre river, just 15 minutes from the city centre and the train station. With our top quality facilities and our expert staff, we offer event planners world class hospitality.

A new 15.000-m2 hall

The exhibition center is constantly evolving to offer excellence, with high-level infrastructure maintenance and renovations as needed. In 2014 we inaugurated a new 15,000-m² hall, a restaurant and new entrances.

The halls and meeting and conference spaces are modular to accommodate any type of event. Exponantes offers 67,000 m² of exhibition space, including 38,500 m² indoors for trade shows, conventions, congresses and other events. We also have spaces for meetings and seminars.

The Nantes Exhibition Centre hosts 100 events annually on average:

  • Trade shows and expos for the general public
  • Congresses
  • Business conventions, corporate events and seminars
  • Sports events
  • Live performances

The first eco-committed exhibition centre

Exponantes, the first eco-committed exhibition centre. Boasting a unique setting, Exponantes became in 2010 the first ISO14001-certified fairgrounds in Europe. This demonstrates a strong commitment to become a model site in terms of Sustainable Development and Eco-events. Concrete actions include:

  • Reducing and recycling waste, carpets, fabrics, optimizing energy management
  • Improving site accessibility for disabled people
  • Selecting environmentally and socially responsible partners and providers
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
