As the biggest modular building in Europe with a capacity for 20,000 to 40,000 spectators, the U arena will host sporting events and concerts with international stars. It is the first auditorium where the stands are in a U-shape configuration to provide a panoramic view for everyone. This lively and accessible place offers visitors and professionals an exciting experience in a grandiose and innovative setting.

Equipped with the latest technology like the incredible Emotion Studio (for giant projections in 3D over a 4,500 m² area), the U arena is revolutionizing corporate events. It can accommodate any kind of event, thanks to its fully modular spaces: 95 boxes, for a capacity of 10 to 44 people, with à la carte services (concierge, restaurant ...); 8 rooms (between 93 and 672 m²) can accommodate from 80 to 530 people; a conference room and a multipurpose room; as well as the possibility of holding an event in the pit of the arena (9,000 m²).

Note that the building can be hired for a convention (for between 1,500 to 30,000 people) including the use of the arena and stands, the activation of the Emotion Studio and the projection of the event on the screens, or alternatively  the entire U arena may be hired with all its areas for 40,000 people.

It is caterer Butard Enescot that will manage the catering in the hospitality spaces, putting an emphasis on conviviality, quality, fresh products and bespoke services.
