The venue: Hangar 14, atypical
Former port facilities, the Hangar 14 is a perfect example of a successful urban reconversion.
This exhibition and meeting space is located in the historical district called "Chartrons", at the heart of Bordeaux, and benefits from a terrace with a panoramic view on the Garonne river.
The tramway station and car park nearby make its access easy for visitors.
