the exhibition center

The show is taking place at La Halle Tony Garnier located 17 avenue Tony Garnier, 69007 Lyon.

The chosen location – Hall Tony Garnier – could not be better located for a Paddle Sports Trade Show with the exhibition center only 250 meters from the river Rhône.

Located downtown with direct flights from anywhere in Europe and the world.

With the airport less than a 30-minute drive from the show, a train station three tram stops away, and a tram stop on the show’s doorstep, this is a “green” show. Once you reach Lyon, there is no need to use a car. From the river to the hall to the city center, it is all in one place!
