 Access Antibes-Juan-les-Pins, the city

Ideally located in the very heart of the French Riviera between Nice and Cannes, just a few minutes from Nice-Côte d’Azur International Airport, Antibes is a modern and dynamic town and yet it has conserved perfectly its charm and its authenticity.

This wonderful historical city, the only one on the coast which has preserved its ramparts, attracted many artists thanks to its charming medieval town and its wild cape where Mediterranean vegetation hides sumptuous villas owned by the richest and most famous people of the world.

In this magical environment, Maupassant, Picasso, Prévert, Nicolas de Staël and Graham Greene have been inspired and accomplished here many famous works.

Enter this paradise and take a break here to discover the secret of Antibes and Picasso’s "joie de vivre"...

Antipolis Convention centre marks the advent of a new generation of convention centres by proposing, beyond its original function, a set of services composed of a shopping gallery, restaurants and an underground parking lot. 

Designed by architect Jean-Jacques Ory, this building with its elegant and harmonious lines, marked with boldness and modernity, shows a strong architectural landmark at the heart of the resort of Juan-les-Pins. Set at the peak of a 14,000 m² area shared with a set of shops and restaurants, the Convention centre offers a space for meetings and communication events of a new generation. The building, which is of high environmental quality, holds an auditorium on its rooftop, 12 committee rooms, a 1,600 m² modular hall for exhibitions and catering, as well as a lounge/ bar and a panoramic restaurant opening onto the vast terraces overlooking the bay of Juan-les-Pins.

The location of the site at 150m from the sea and in the heart of a green path between the Gould Pine Grove and the Sidney Bechet square offers very attractive surroundings to the participants. The areas dedicated to the events are located on the 2 upper stories with a view over the sea.
