Soak in Paris, with world-class venues INMA World Congress participants have come to expect. The Congress will be held at Palais Brongniart, while opening and closing receptions will be at The Louvre and Intercontinental – Le Grand. Reserve your sleeping room at an INMA-recommended hotel within walking distance of all Congress venues.
The INMA World Congress venue in Paris will be the Palais Brongniart, a flagship of Parisian architectural heritage. Located in the 'Vivienne' district, between the place de la Concorde and the Louvre Museum, the Palais Brongniart is ideally situated within close proximity to the grand hotels and major department stores. Built as an early 19th century stock exchange, Palais Brongniart now is one of Paris' leading conference venues.
The opening reception of the INMA World Congress will be at the world's most famous museum: The Louvre. World Congress attendees will have exclusive access to Louvre exhibits featuring the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo before networking near that wing's rotunda.
With an illustrious history hosting Paris's most exclusive events, the Global Media Awards Dinner will be hosted by the Intercontinental – Le Grand in its famous Opera Room which has entertained since the time of Napoleon III. The oval ballroom has been magnificently restored to reach new heights of elegance.
