The business meeting for event organizers
I recommend MICE PLACE for its organization quality and the proposed offers. Congratulations to the whole team. PERSPECTIVES & ORGANISATIONS
A big thank for the organization and the organizer for these events. Always a pleasure to discover new places and new people. L'Oréal
MICE PLACE is the essential opportunity to expand the network and consequently its activity. It's also a convivial moment orchestrated in a sumptuous setting!
With its economic dynamism strenght and its excellent infrastructure with the quality of its hotels, the Metropolis of Lyon has managed to become a major European destination for business tourism, Lyon has succeeded in establishing itself as the entry of MICE events in the Rhône-Alpes region.
Here are some figures:
5 * 4 * 3 * business hotels represent 65% of the total offer in Lyon and the Rhône-Alps region which represents 9% of overnight stays of the entire French tourism reception capacity.
With more than 400 high-capacity rooms that can host congresses and seminars, Lyon is the 2nd largest city in France to host international conferences. It is a leading congress destination!
More than 6% of stays are made for "Business" purposes : Meetings and business events (appointments, conferences, seminars, trainings ...) are becoming increasingly important.
The average length of stay is 4.5 days versus 6.6 days for a tourist who consumes value of "leisure"!
The Rhône-Alpes region has powerful advantages: its strategic position as an European crossroads and its proximity with important markets, favorise its efficient means of communication wich contributes to make closer national metropolis regions with European cities.
