Paris, a city with an international profile 

Apart from being a major international conference city with a modern infrastructure, Paris is recognised as being one of the most attractive cities in Europe and one of the safest cities in the world. Paris is also a relatively “small” city (there are only 1.3 million inhabitants in central Paris and the city itself is half the size of London). For more information about Paris, you can visit: 

As a result of the city's size and the public transport infrastructure, the conference centre and hotels are close to each other; therefore a shuttle service from hotels to the venue is not necessary.
