bienVenue 2024: a unique experience in outstanding venues

 

Paris regularly plays host to major international sporting fixtures, including Euro 2016, the World Handball Championships and the French Ice Hockey Cup, the Ryder Cup, the FIFA Women’s World Cup, the NBA Paris Game and the Rugby World Cup 2023. This outstanding track record comes to a head in 2024 when the capital welcomes the world’s greatest sporting event: the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Besides its economic impact and international appeal, this leading event will provide a major boost to actors in the Paris region and to business tourism, while shedding light on the city’s hospitality sector and its commitment to more sustainable tourism. This is why Paris City Council and the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau, supported by Paris 2024, are launching “bienVenue 2024”, an innovative platform for businesses, committees, federations, official sponsors, media outlets and other international actors.

 

 

The free-to-access “bienVenue 2024” platform will make it easier for professionals to interact and connect with outstanding venues. Theatres, museums, foundations, outdoor spaces, sporting venues and leading hotels and restaurants will offer visitors a unique experience and the opportunity to discover the capital’s extraordinary heritage during the Games. Selected Paris City Council venues will also be available for hire for the first time, exclusively on “bienVenue 2024”.

 

 

Our commitments:

 

  • Offer outstanding venues and unique spaces meeting specific event hosting and organisation, sustainability and accessibility criteria  
  • Make it easier to connect with top professionals in Paris
  • Support customers in their search for a venue or service that meets their requirements, including social and promotional spaces, logistics areas and site facilities
