Which professional events should be held in a convention center?

A con­ven­tion cen­ter is spe­cial­ized in large-scale events. It can be called upon to organ­ize dif­fer­ent types of pro­fes­sion­al events. Here are some examples:

One room or space will be more suit­able than anoth­er depend­ing on the type of event you wish to organize:

  • Aud­it­or­i­um for conferences,
  • Hall for exhib­i­tions and parties,
  • Meet­ing room for study days…

When brief­ing the sales depart­ments of the con­ven­tion cen­ters you are inter­view­ing, remem­ber to list all your needs so that the teams can sug­gest the spaces that best suit your event and make your recep­tion a success.


Choose the convention center that will accommodate all the guests of your professional event

Wheth­er it is to organ­ize a cor­por­ate event or a pub­lic event, the capa­city of the ven­ue is the cru­cial point in the search for a place like a con­ven­tion cen­ter. Con­ven­tion cen­ters can accom­mod­ate hun­dreds or even thou­sands of people. These recep­tion places are well known in the busi­ness tour­ism. They have a mul­ti­tude of large rooms, of all types, for all configurations:

  • Meet­ing room,
  • Aud­it­or­i­um,
  • Exhib­i­tion hall,
  • Mod­u­lar and mul­tipur­pose spaces,
  • Recep­tion area,
  • Out­door area,
  • Deliv­ery dock,
  • Etc…

In a con­ven­tion cen­ter, everything is struc­tured for events. Depend­ing on the num­ber of par­ti­cipants, it may be pos­sible to privat­ize all or part of a con­ven­tion center.

Once fixed intern­ally, the dates of a pro­fes­sion­al event are no longer flex­ible. It is there­fore import­ant to book sev­er­al months in advance, to ensure the avail­ab­il­ity of the selec­ted con­ven­tion cen­ters for your requests for quotation.

The CID Deau­ville Con­ven­tion Cen­ter has 18,000m² of com­fort­able and flex­ible space to host pro­fes­sion­al or gen­er­al pub­lic events. Built on the seafront, in an idyll­ic set­ting, the Centre Inter­na­tion­al de Deau­ville allows you to organ­ize your pro­fes­sion­al event on foot.

An easily accessible convention center for your business event

How will your par­ti­cipants get to the con­ven­tion cen­ter? What will be their aver­age travel time? The ease of access to the ven­ue is one of the main cri­ter­ia in choos­ing a des­tin­a­tion. A city with good pub­lic trans­port links and plenty of nearby park­ing spaces will allow guests to arrive at the con­ven­tion cen­ter on time and with peace of mind!

Is your event planned to last sev­er­al days? The city in which it takes place must have suf­fi­cient accom­mod­a­tion capacity.

Deau­ville and its con­ven­tion cen­ter have many assets to wel­come you dur­ing your pro­fes­sion­al event in Nor­mandy, on the Côte Fleur­ie. The Nor­mandy con­ven­tion cen­ter is access­ible by pub­lic trans­port, by plane, by train and by the A13 free­way. The city has many facil­it­ies to make every busi­ness event there enjoy­able, less than two hours from Par­is. Organ­iz­ing a pro­fes­sion­al event in Deau­ville is also the assur­ance that your par­ti­cipants will be able to relax by the sea, stroll through the town cen­ter or enjoy a drink on the ter­races between two high­lights of the event: in Deau­ville everything is with­in walk­ing dis­tance!

Choose a venue with versatile and modular spaces for your professional events

By choos­ing ver­sat­ile and mod­u­lar spaces for your busi­ness event, you have the abil­ity to make adjust­ments accord­ing to your needs. This helps tre­mend­ously in the over­all organ­iz­a­tion of a cor­por­ate event. A par­ti­tioned meet­ing room or a mod­u­lar hall will allow you to divide the groups accord­ing to your needs, or to set up addi­tion­al break areas: This way, the par­ti­cipants bene­fit from a bet­ter recep­tion and an optim­al comfort.

The fact that you can adapt the spaces as you wish sim­pli­fies the organ­iz­a­tion of sem­inars, team build­ing days or pro­fes­sion­al din­ners for example. Opt­ing for a con­ven­tion cen­ter is really an excel­lent choice for the organ­iz­a­tion of a pro­fes­sion­al event: the flex­ib­il­ity offered by these places and the sup­port of an exper­i­enced event team are the keys to the suc­cess of the event.
