Located in the heart of the city center, at 1 minute walk from Nancy's TGV station and public transport, the Prouvé Center is a state-of-the-record piece of equipment.
Equipped with a 600 m2 exhibition hall and a 2,400 m2 hall that can be accommodated in a 2,400-seat hall, 2 auditoriums (850 and 300 seats), 13 meeting rooms with simultaneous translation booths, a panoramic receptive space with up to 1,200 covered and a public car park in the basement of 455 spaces, it is the ideal setting for the organisation of the 8th Clay Conference in Nancy.
Lunches will take place in the top floor of the Centre Prouvé, offering to the participants a panormaic view of Nancy.
The realization of the Prouvé Convention Centre is first and foremost the successful conversion of an emblematic building in the station district: the former postal sorting centre, designed in the 1970s by architects Jacques André and Claude Prouvé.
The building, which at the time offered 11,000 square metres of available space, was an icon of 1970s industrial architecture for specialists. This is why Marc Barani and Christophe Presle, associate architects, wanted to register their program in respect of this building and its lines of strength.
