Give your guests a memorable experience as part of a prestigious event such as a sophisticated reception or press conference! With a large capacity and resolutely modern style, the reception lobby offers great flexibility in terms of configuration. Its proximity to essential services needed for your event, such as a parking area and catering space, makes holding the even easy and facilitates access for your guests.
