Average costs for different event types

Prices for meeting and workshop venues start at only €50 an hour, with conference venues starting at €110 per hour! It’s your event, so it’s always about how much you would like to spend. Ultimately however, Paris is a premium and luxurious event venue and this is reflected in the cost. Most venues in Paris are in the middle to upper budget range. If you are going to go for a more affordable venue, you could look to other European cities such as Lisbon or Prague perhaps? You could make further savings by opting for a dry hire event, being around 30% cheaper than a wet hire. That being said, be careful! External providers are no guarantee of saving money. It’s common for them to result in a total budget that’s 15-20% higher than a wet hire venue. In the most extreme case, we’ve seen a +50% premium for the same services!

Areas of the city to host an event

Which area is best for your corporate event in Paris? The city is made up of 20 numbered zones, or as they’re known locally, arrondissements If you like trendy locations full of energy in the night, and great shopping during the day, maybe you’d like Le Marais. If you’re looking for an elusive sense of peace while being bang in the centre of everything, then perhaps the little island in the middle of the Seine river - Ile Saint-Louis - could be perfect for you. If you want quintessential Paris, it must be The Latin Quarter. It’s an area popular with tourists and students, and for good reason! Maybe cool cafes, literary history and cocktail bars are your thing. That would be Saint-Germain-Des-Prés. If you’re a cultured soul with a taste for opera and outdoor markets, then you have the Bastille to live like the Parisians do. There’s the legendary hill, stunning views and the village feel within the city that is Montmartre. Alternatively, you could be searching for a cosmopolitan vibe with flavours from Brazil, Rwanda, and Sicily. An independent art scene and exciting nightlife. Belleville is Paris’ urban option. It’s a big city, so it could be hard work finding the right place for you. This article highlights five of the best boutique hotels that Paris has to offer. Our selection has something for everyone. From the eccentric, to the homely and cosy. Whether you’re traveling for work, for escape, romance, or the thrill of adventure, you’re covered.

Public transport options

If you’re a romantic, we already know you’d prefer to walk through the streets of Paris. But, just say you’re in a hurry… the public transport options in Paris are highly thought of. Besides, there’s romance in public transport too! Just think of the beautiful Art Nouveau entrances to Paris’ Metro stations. The Metro system is the 2nd biggest in Europe known for its efficiency. You are never more than 500m from a metro station, and tickets cost €1.90 for a single ride, or €14.99 for a cachet (10 rides). Buy them at stations or kiosks. Other public transport options are train, tram, bus, or night bus. Trains are largely for the suburbs. Trams serve the perimeter of the city. As you can imagine, the buses go everywhere. And of course, the night buses serve those who have a taste for authentic Parisian nightlife! Individual tickets are not transferable to different forms of public transport, however. But there is a way to get total peace of mind. You might like to make your time in Paris easier by buying a Visite Travel Pass. It’s one ticket and works on metro, train, tram, bus or night bus. It’s valid for five days, just flash your card, and you’re on board. No fuss. Tickets vary in price from €12-65.80, and cover areas outside Paris as far afield as the airports and Disneyland!

FAQ for Venues in Paris

What type of business events could I organize in a particular venue in Paris?

The possibilities are endless. But basically; “whatever you want, as long as you respect the rules” (safety standards, noise pollution, social distancing, etc.). If you’re not sure, it’s best to align with your location expert. They can provide you with the answers and solutions when hunting for the right location, e.g. permits, licenses, etc.

Are services such as technical support and catering available at the event venue in Paris?

Usually, yes. Most venues (especially the larger ones) tend to have standard AV equipment available. It can come at an extra cost, but this may also be cheaper than using a third-party service provider.

For catering, it’s common to source an external provider. However, the venue will likely have a list of preferred vendors. We recommend choosing a caterer from this list to avoid corkage fees or unpleasant surprises on the day.

What is the average cost of a dry hire event venue in Paris?

The cost depends on the selected venue and market conditions. In general, dry hire can be around 30% cheaper than wet hire (incl. catering). However, booking a dry hire venue and then sourcing external service providers (for extras such as AV installation, catering, etc.) can result in a total budget that's 15-20% higher than a wet hire venue. We've seen a +50% premium for the same services!

What kind of event venues are available in Paris?

Paris has nearly every type of venue available for different events. Be wary that most venues are in the middle to upper budget range segment, though.
