General Information about Paris for Meeting Planners and Event Professionals   

Paris is the capital city of France, located in the northern-central part of the country on the river Seine. It is a major European city and an important global centre for arts, culture, finance, commerce, science, fashion and gastronomy. The city is famous for its wonderful architecture which dates back one millennium. Some of its most impressive architectural landmarks include the Romanesque Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés (1014–1163), the early Gothic Basilica of Saint-Denis (1144), the Gothic Notre Dame Cathedral (1163–1345) and Saint Chapelle (1239–1248) and the Baroque churches Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis (1627–1641) and Les Invalides (1670–1708). Other important tourist attractions are the Eiffel Tower, constructed for the Paris Universal Exposition of 1889, the Arc de Triomphe on the Champs-Élysées, the Sacré-Coeur church on the hill of Montmartre, and the Grand Palais and Petit Palais, both built for the Paris Universal Exposition of 1900. The city’s historical centre along the Seine was classified as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Paris is also home to the headquarters of many important international organizations including UNESCO, the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development, the European Space Agency, the International Bureau of Weights and Measures, the International Energy Agency, the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie, the European Union Institute for Security Studies, the International Exhibition Bureau, the International Chamber of Commerce, or the International Federation for Human Rights.
