IAC - the International Astronautical Congress, is the world's leading space event.

Every year, all the players in the space industry come together to offer everyone the opportunity to discover the latest information and innovations in space, as well as prominent contacts and potential partnerships.

Paris hosted the very first International Astronautical Congress in 1950, then in 1963 and most recently in 1982. With IAC 2022, Paris will hold the record for having hosted the most congresses in this field.

Sustainable development approach

ISO 20121 certified Since 2018, our approach to social and environmental responsibility is based on 4 pillars: A controlled carbon footprint, better involvement, ecologically sustainable partner and getting everyone involved. As an event venue manager, we protect both material and non-material assets. Every day, one event is set up while the other is taken down. We want to do more than simply make venues available: we want to make the visitors dream come true, provide them with a service, get our partners engaged, mobilise our teams and protect the environment.
