As thecentral location for the organisation and the finish site for the runners, the Congress Centre's spaces were mobilised in their entirety:

  • 3000 m² of the Grande Halle modulated as a catering area for partners and their guests
  • The 840 m² Tambour Major Room and the 720 m² Chat Botté Room dedicated to the distribution of badges to guests and the reception of volunteers for the event
  • The 550 m² reception hall was transformed into a press centre: more than 150 journalists were present to provide real-time information about the races and the event in general.

A tailor-made wooden terrace for a front row seat

Especially for the event and for the first time at the Congress Centre, the forecourt was transformed into a 400m² wooden terrace to create a warm and comfortable space dedicated to the event's partners and their guests. The latter were able to watch the start and finish of the races from close quarters.
