    Located in the centre of town, opposite the train station and with direct access to the canal of the Erdre, Nantes Cité des Congrès is an excellent venue for international conferences. The Welcome Cocktail will take place in the Great Hall, a multi-purpose space entirely bathed in natural light. Following the cocktail, participants will be able to continue the festivities by attending one of the concerts of "Les Rendez-vous de l'Erdre". This festival celebrates the unique marriage of Jazz and Belle plaisance. It offers a rich programme of concerts, open to all jazz trends, and brings together 200 remarkable boats, on the quayside of the Erdre, giving the festival its unique character!

    Set in the historic heart of Nantes, the Château des ducs de Bretagne is the city’s most important historic building, along with the Cathedral St. Pierre. When looking at it from the city, it is a fortress with 500 metres of curtain walls punctuated by seven towers, all linked by a sentry walkway. The inner courtyard reveals an elegant 15th century ducal residence made of tufa stone, in flamboyant gothic style and bearing the first traces of Renaissance inspiration, as well as other buildings dating back from the 16th and the 18th centuries.
    A dinner cocktail will be served in the courtyard, introducing local products provided by gastronomy craftsmen.

    La Poterie, elegant and the only "Folie Nantaise" on the banks of the Erdre, was built at the gates of Nantes at the end of the 18th century on the very site of an old Roman tile factory.
    For almost 30 years now, stables and outbuildings have been completely restored to develop a new reception activity. You will discover this Louis XVI style castle in this natural setting on the banks of the Erdre river, classified as a major national environmental site. The Erdre, "the most beautiful river in France", said François 1st, winds gently for 35 km between wooded hills and charming properties.
    Please note that the Symposium Banquet has a limited capacity of 400 seats. Don't wait to sign up!
