Places of interest in the the Seine Saint Denis department
Located in the Seine-Saint-Denis region in the north of the French capital, the Cité du Cinéma, conceived by Luc Besson, is a hub for European cinema. Since its inception in 2012, the Cité has established itself as a major crossroads for film productions. Situated at 20 Rue Ampère in Saint Denis, it brings together various professions related to cinema, including film students. The Cité also has its own filming facilities such as studios. It took Luc Besson more than a decade to realize this infrastructure, with the support of a few financial partners from the film industry. In its design, the complex offers several spaces suitable for different events. The mezzanine can host events or cocktails for up to 500 people, or meals for up to 380 people. The Nef, an exceptional large space, can host unique events such as fashion shows, exhibition openings, or gala evenings. The Cité's restaurant is also a gourmet destination. The dining room can accommodate large dinners or gourmet galas. As befits a cinema city, the building includes an auditorium that can seat 430 guests. The screen rivals those in Hollywood theaters, and the complex also features VIP rooms and changing rooms. Parking is also available on site. It's worth noting that since its inception, the Cité has already organized several major events such as "The Tribes Festival" in 2014 and "When Motor Sports Meet Cinema" in 2016.
The Citroën Conservatory Museum
Brief Presentation of the Museum
The Citroën Heritage Museum, known as the Conservatoire Citroën, is situated within the PSA factory in Aulnay-sous-Bois. Housed in a 6,500 m² building, the museum exhibits around 400 vehicles, which are divided into four categories: from 1919 to the present day, design studies, rally and competition cars, and collectibles. Furthermore, the exhibits are arranged into thematic sections: sports, adventure, utility vehicles, unusual vehicles, concept cars, and prototypes. It's also important to note that the Citroën Conservatory Museum possesses some iconic cars such as the 2CV, Traction Avant, DS, SM, the Citroën Kegresse halftrack from the first desert crossing, and the victorious ZX Rallye Raid from the Paris-Dakar rally. All these collections represent two examples kept by the brand from each production series.
Some Useful Information for Visitors
The museum also houses documents and archives recording the evolution of the Citroën brand. Thus, visitors can find records such as registration ledgers, sketches, and plans from the Citroën design offices. Informational brochures are available, including posters, newsletters, magazines, and press kits. Visitors should be able to obtain copies of these documents. Guided tours are offered from Monday to Friday, either in the morning at 9:30 or in the afternoon at 1:30. However, these tours must be booked in advance and follow a specific schedule. The site receives about 5,000 visitors per year, who are carefully selected by the brand. These visitors are generally collectors or members of associations with a passion for the Citroën brand. The museum frequently opens its doors to journalists and media outlets.
The Villepinte Exhibitions Center
The Park in Numbers
The Villepinte Exhibition Park first opened its doors in December 1982. This grand infrastructure was developed by the Société Immobilière du Palais des Congrès, with the main architect being François Régis Pelletrat. Spanning more than 134 hectares, the park consists of several buildings designed to host large exhibitions and trade shows, whether they are national or international. Located in the town of Villepinte, it boasts 9 exhibition halls that provide a total exhibition area of 242,200 m². This places it at the top of the list of exhibition venues in France, surpassing even Porte de Versailles in Paris. The park also ranks 6th among exhibition areas in Europe, attracting millions of visitors each year. Managed by Viparis, the park has so far hosted more than 407 exhibitions and 1,013 congresses.
The Villepinte Exhibition Park was conceived and established under the guidance of the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry. When it first opened in 1982, the park only covered 70,000 m². Each hall has varying dimensions and is used for a range of events such as cultural conventions, political gatherings, and religious meetings. One notable feature of the Villepinte Exhibition Center is its expansive glass reception gallery, which stretches several hundred meters in length and provides access to conference centers and exhibition halls.
In addition, the park has 42 meeting rooms and 2 amphitheaters that seat 170 and 630 people, respectively. It also houses 20 restaurants and 22 bars, and there is ample parking available for guests. It's important to note that the park is constantly changing and evolving. The current owners plan to expand the total area to 350,000 m² within a few years.
