It’s official, your next seminar will be held in Lille. The problem? You don’t really know the city and it is difficult for you to choose a suitable venue to welcome your team. Don’t panic! Eventdrive is here to help you. 🙂 Our team of experts is lucky enough to know this beautiful northern city and has compiled a list of 7 venues to visit for you to organize a seminar. So should we prefer Old Lille and its cobbled streets, boulevard Vauban and its universities or should we make it easier by setting up near one of the city’s two train stations? We would like to share with you our favorites to help you organize your seminar in Lille!
LILLE GRAND PALAIS : THE LEGEND OF EVENTS IN LILLE
How to start this list of venues to organize a seminar in Lille without mentioning the Grand Palais? If there was one venue to look first, it would be this one! Lille Grand Palais offers dozens of modular spaces that can accommodate all types of events. Particularly well located in the centre of Lille, the Grand Palais has 28 meeting rooms perfectly adapted to the organisation of a seminar that can accommodate up to 1000 people. Needless to say, they have all the equipment you need. An organizing team is also available at all times to help you plan your project. Their motto? Make your life easier.

THE COUVENT DES MINIMES: IN THE HEART OF LILLE
Le Couvent des Minimes is a luxury hotel located 5 minutes from the centre of Lille. This venue is famous in the metropolis of Lille for its unusual architecture and its building bathed in natural light. Its large glass roof in the reception hall will not leave you unmoved. Fully equipped, all rooms have video projectors, flip charts and other equipment of all kinds. On request, it is also possible to have more specific equipment such as a microphone or a stage. More than 7 rooms are available for rent, which can accommodate a total of more than 300 people! The hotel can also provide lounges if you wish to continue your seminar with a cocktail, for example. Who says you can’t organize all-in-one event?
1624: A MODERN COWORKING AREA
If you don’t need too much space, the 1624 coworking space is for you. The venue has 2 meeting rooms, the largest of them can be adapted to your needs. They can accommodate up to 23 people and also are fully equipped with all the necessary equipment. 1624 also has a bar area and a terrace: ideal for a break! This is a point not to be overlooked, your employees will need to take a break in the middle of their seminar. In addition to offering reasonable rates, the venue will seduce you with its typical northern architecture. Red bricks, a vaulted cellar, everything we love!
THE INKERMANN CH TILLON SPACE: FOR A PROFESSIONAL ATMOSPHERE
Sometimes, we don’t want to get too far from our goal and all we want is a space that can accommodate our employees, without unnecessary frills. No problem with that! And precisely, the Inkermann Châtillon Space defines itself as such. Benefiting from a fair design and contemporary architecture, the venue makes innovation its priority. What is its objective? Make your event a success without any hassle. To achieve this, a whole range of technical services are offered, as well as lunch and dinner services to enhance your breaks. All you have to do is choose the type of configuration you want in the room (U-shaped, theatre…) and you will be able to work under the best conditions.
THE AUBERGE DU FORGERON: PEACE AND COMFORT
Doesn’t moving a little further away from the centre of Lille scare you to find a little more calm? The Auberge du Forgeron is probably what you need. The establishment has 3 modular rooms with a capacity of up to 190 participants. But the Auberge can also provide you with more grandiose spaces such as the canopy or the terrace. Different configurations are possible for the rooms depending on your business objective. On site, a 3-star hotel will also be able to accommodate guests who wish to stay at the event site. Located on the periphery of Lille, the hostel remains easily accessible and is only 15 minutes from the centre of Lille.
EURATECHNOLOGIES: AT THE HEART OF A TECHNOLOGICAL ECOSYSTEM
Euratechnologies is the venue-to-be for young companies full of determination, but also for older ones. Defining itself as a start-up incubator, the venue welcomes professionals from all backgrounds every day. Euratechnologies is a coworking space that welcomes companies wishing to set up in a dynamic environment on a daily basis. But Euratechnologies also has 12 spaces that can host professional events. Fully customizable, the rooms are equipped with the necessary equipment to hold a seminar with screen, flipchart or sound equipment. Would you like to add a little bit of technology to your seminar?
THE 49 R: TO ENJOY THE OLD LILLE
Located in the heart of Old Lille, the 49 R is a former private mansion converted into an event centre, with many meeting rooms for rent. A venue that is ideal for work and relaxation and hosts all types of professional events. Ideal for seminars, the venue only offers very bright rooms with the necessary equipment. In the proposed packaged offers, sweets and savoury snacks are offered at each break. But a sit-down meal prepared by a chef is also included for the lunch break. The big positive point?
