Daktronics Displays Key to Paris Expo Porte de Versailles Modernization Project

The Paris Expo Porte de Versailles is an active, vital facility in France. A 10-year modernization project aims to update and upgrade the expo in new and inventive ways. Daktronics is bringing technology and light to the project.

The Paris Expo Porte de Versailles hosts more than 7.5 visitors and 200 events every year. The facility was built in 1923 to host the Paris Trade Fair. It still hosts some of the biggest events in France each year, including the International Boat Show, International Automobile Show, and the International Agricultural Show.

It’s been kept up to date, but the current modernization project is taking things up a few notches. The project is being led by five world-renowned architects involved, including two Pritzker Prize winners. The 10-year project, projected to be completed in 2024, is being completed without closing the site.

At its completion, the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles will include seven pavilions, the largest conference center in Europe, a 450-room hotel complex, a Michelin-ranked restaurant, and the iconic mixed-use building called Triangle. Viparis will operate the completed project.

Renowned architect Jean Nouvel is in charge of the project. His general contractor Leon Grosse, along with consultant Eric Mangeon, worked closely with Daktronics. Here are some of the highlights of the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles project update.
