European Best Destination 2015
Choosing Bordeaux for a corporate event is very fashionable; Bordeaux is a rising star in several top ten lists.
A city internationally renowned for its great wines, listed with UNESCO as a World Heritage Site for its 18th century architecture elegant beyond compare, its cuisine, and its quality of life.
Easily accessible from several French and international cities, the city has top quality amenities, and a rapidly expanding network of hotels - boutique hotels, design hotels, and major luxury hotels to appeal to the most demanding clients. An international airport, less than thirty minutes from the city and the Bordeaux train station, located downtown, facilitate access and arrivals for participants.
Choosing Bordeaux means reconciling a big city’s strong points with its amenities, all while enjoying Southwestern France’s easy-going lifestyle and the proximity of the ocean and vineyards.
Comfortably seated in the Bordeaux Grand Hôtel’s conference rooms, you can participate in one of your convention’s plenary sessions while your spouse visits the most secret nooks and crannies of the Grand Théâtre and private mansions, gems from Bordeaux’s Golden Age.
For larger events, convention centers with the latest technologies can accommodate you in their prestigious setting.
When the day’s over, choose the atmosphere for your evening – relaxed along the Garonne River; a barbecue at a winemaking chateau; prestigious in an 18th century mansion or a museum; a gala evening at a grand cru classé wine chateau – the first options are just outside Bordeaux.
