Centre International des Congrès
du Palais des Papes
The International Conference Center
During the 14th century, the city of Avignon was part of the Pontifical States, and as such was sheltered from war and destruction. Since the High Middle Ages, Avignon has been a vital intellectual and commercial cross-roads in Europe, a choice location for exchange, meetings and discussions.
Today, its internationally-known cultural influence and attraction have made it one of the most prestigious conference sites in the world.
The International Congress Center was created in 1976 within the outstanding premises of the Palace of the Popes and hosts many events throughout the entire year.
The Jeanne Laurent Building, an outlying building just outside the Popes’ Palace Congress Center, is located in the former papal gardens and can host working meals or exhibits relating to congresses held in the Congress Center. The Jeanne Laurent building is made up of four vaulted rooms in exposed stone, with magnificent views over the Rhône river, offering a splendid panorama of the Rhône Valley.
The International Congress Center, a palace open to the modern world:The magnificent setting, the location in the very heart of the historical, cultural and university town of Avignon, the easy access (airport, TGV train station, direct motorways), the effortless parking (underground 900-place car park), all make the International Congress Center a choice destination.
