Here is the ideal framework for a spectacular, memorable event! Combine the vast reception lobby space to the attractive exhibition hall and the immersive experiences of the two theatres to create unique, unprecedented moments! The vast surface area of the premises offers a variety of possible configurations allowing you to create particularly striking environments. The complementary immersive experiences of our two theatres will transport your guests into the heart of the cosmos, through a passionate and moving exploration of our Universe, which they will continue by visiting the Exo: Our Search for Life in the Universe interactive exhibition. To ensure the success of your event, all services – parking, catering space, cloakroom – are close by, thus providing easy access and use of facilities, both for your guests and suppliers.
