Congress activity in 2015


The Paris Convention Bureau recorded a total of 1 004 congresses in the city in 2015. This represents an overall rise of 2.9 % compared to 2014. Paris is still an attractive and dynamic city for organizing events as 52 associations chose Paris, the first worldwide congress destination, for hosting their first convention. Indeed some large-scale events have been held in Paris in 2015 such as the European Wind Energy Association Annual Event which attracted 7 642 attendees or similarly the United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP 21) where more than 37 800 participants attended.
