La Sucrière, an original venue located at the heart of the Docks de Lyon-Confluence neighbourhood, in a fully renovated industrial building, has capacity for up to 1600 people for a gala dinner. It offers 3800 m² of event spaces and 1700 m² dedicated to cultural exhibitions.
It has now been completely renovated but has retained its industrial character and is fast becoming the figurehead of Lyon's new Confluence district, a former labouring district that now houses the head offices of leading communication companies and various organisations, trendy restaurants, fun bars, art galleries and designer stores.
With 6,500 m² entrusted to the GL Events group, including 3,800 m² devoted to event spaces, 1,700 m² to art and culture and a bar/club, La Sucrière aims to become a site that combines culture, creation, communication and conviviality, giving it unique character, in the same vein as similar sites in large European capitals such as London, Madrid and Berlin.
La Sucrière will host exhibitions, shows, corporate events, trade fairs and gala dinners, bringing together guests and participants from all over the world.
Built in the 1930s along the river Saône, this 80-year old former warehouse has just been given a new lease of life in hosting Lyon's Biennial Contemporary Art festival (one of the biggest in Europe) and other shows as the Nuits Sonores.
