Are you a doctor, scientist or researcher? Do you belong to an association or federation?

We can help you for free to not only find a venue for your convention, conference or colloquium, but also to find an evening venue for your dinners and cocktail parties and hotel rooms for your participants.

More specifically, in the context of an application to a conference on your speciality, the Convention Bureau can offer you personnalised asssitance and support you throughout your application. 

For conferences taking place at least 2 years after filing the application, we have created a  hotel charter allowing you, notably, to pre-book rooms for the conference in question.

Every year, 40,000 Collector Business guidebooks are published, a part of which is reserved for personalised editions. A real ‘plus’ for the organiser who can offer their participants the guide to the best go-to places in Lyon with the name and logo of the event on the cover.
Events eligible for this special edition are generally international events with more than 1000 participants.

For international conferences of more than 3000 people, the Convention Bureau, Greater Lyon and its service providers have set up Welcome by ONLYLYON, a reception system for your participants. 

Finally, if you organise conferences regularly and would like to share your experience and learn from that of others, we invite you to join the ONLYLYON ambassadors network.
