The World Trade Center has opened 30 years ago and is now the third business center of Marseille along with the Parc Chanot and the Palais du Pharo. It is composed of a convention center, a business center, an export club (Club WTC Apex) and a training center (international language center) which we regularly use for our English courses.
300 WTCs are located in over 100 countries and are designed to expand international trade, in which 750,000 member companies can benefit from services and advantages.
The WTC is located in the heart of Marseille, just behind the Centre Bourse shopping center, between the Vieux Port, the Canebière and Euroméditerranée, and is easily accessible as it’s 5 minutes from the train station.
11 fully equipped meeting rooms will be renovated in 2016. 800 m² will be added to the existing 2,000 m². The entire complex will be completely renovated to enhance the attractiveness of the venue already recognized by the delegates of the territory.
The existing 1200 m² available for organizing your professional events from 2 to 400 people will almost be tripled in the future offering 3,000 m², also meant for young companies. There is also a shared work space “Cowork’in”, inaugurated on April 7 2015. This is a collaborative workplace for young businessmen who can take advantage of benefits for project development.
The World Trade Center will also be installed in the heart of Euroméditerranée in the future business district which will boost the dynamism of the city. On the 29th and 30th floors of “la Marseillaise” tower, a building designed by Jean Nouvel, there are 2,200 m² equipped with windows and tree-lined terraces offering high quality services. With an incomparable panorama of the bay of Marseille, the Provence Business Sky Lounge will accommodate boards, VIP receptions for future investors and promotional events. Completion of this exceptional place is planned for 2018. “The view will be exceptional.”
We are looking forward to seeing this new modernized WTC!
