In the heart of Paris

An emblematic building,
resolutely oriented towards the future

With more than 500 events welcomed every year, the Palais Brongniart breathes in the same rhythm of the global international, national and Parisian Activity.


Palais Brongniart is a venue steeped in history and resolutely future-looking.

An essential flagship monument on Paris'historic landscape, Palais Brongniart was built by the architect Alexandre Théodore Brongniart at the behest of Napoleon Bonaparte. Laying the first stone in 1808, the emperor wished to group together all stock market activities under one roof, a real innovation at the time that aimed to improve the existing system.

Inaugurated in 1826, the location effectively served as the lungs of financial activities in the 19thcentury, aiding the expansion of the railways, the steel industry and major industrial feats, until 1998, the year in which the 'bourse' or stock exchange at the Palais Brongniart was closed.

Entered on the list of historic monuments by decree on 27 October 1987, the Palais Brongniart is now one of the city's premier events venues and hosts conferences, general assemblies, seminars, exhibitions, receptions and more.


Today, Palais Brongniart is one of the foremost convention and events centres in Paris. It carries a philosophy of actions based on economic, social and equitable innovation, a project led by the GL events group, one of the international leaders of events spaces management, and with the City of Paris, the building's owner.

The Palais Brongniart is 3,000 sq.m. of floor area in prestigious spaces within a unique venue that each year hosts over 500 events, including:

  • General assemblies Seminars and conferences
  • Congresses and symposia Conventions and product launches
  • Trade and general public exhibitions Galas, dinners and prestigious receptions
  • Fashion shows, film shoots, TV locations and more
