Marseille, A Global Meeting Hub on the Rise

Marseille, situated on the Mediterranean coast of southern France, is a captivating business events destination. As France's second-largest city, Marseille offers a diverse cultural milieu, culinary delights, and convenient access via its airport or train station

With a rich history and pleasant Mediterranean climate – and thanks to its proactive convention bureau and a dedicated strategy – it’s been attracting the attention of European and international associations more and more lately.

Marseille has recently made headlines with its remarkable ascent in the ICCA (International Congress and Convention Association), rankings, a widely recognized barometer for evaluating cities’ performance as international meeting destinations. Surging from 142nd place in 2012 to its current 43rd position, Marseille now stands as France’s third-largest city for international conferences. This achievement underscores the city’s dynamic spirit and its unwavering dedication to attracting and supporting international gatherings. Collaboration between local authorities and event industry professionals has yielded innovative solutions that cater to the diverse needs of organizers and participants.

To accommodate the growing demand for international conferences, Marseille’s infrastructure is rapidly expanding. Venues such as the Palais du Pharo, Parc Chanot, World Trade Center, and Aix-en-Provence’s conference centre have emerged as top choices for hosting events. These modern, well-equipped spaces offer tailor-made facilities to accommodate conferences and provide exceptional event experiences.

Worth noting is that Marseille is the leading city in France in terms of the percentage of hotels holding the Green Key label: 30% of the hotel inventory and 70% of 4 and 5-star hotels.
