ExpoCité's asphalted areas can be set up for gatherings of all sizes. The P1 and P1A areas alone can accommodate up to 70,000 spectators, with a large stage available for major shows.

Need even more space? Various areas can be combined to increase audience capacity or to include additional stages. You can also rent outdoor space along with a building for the outdoor portion of your event.

  • Dry and wet underground conduits
  • A watertight perimeter can be set up to control entrances and exits.

Extend an event outside the Centre de foires 

Are you organizing an event at the exhibition centre? The outdoor space in front of the building is also available for rental, so you can promote your event or add an outdoor component to your program. It's something to consider!

Other outdoor spaces

You can rent one or more outdoor spaces for your event, plus you can also rent space outside of a building for the outdoor component of your event. Ask us for more details!
