International Congress Center, Rennes
Jacobin Monastery, Rennes (in progress)
Currently with no congress center, the Communauté d’Agglomération Rennes Métropole (Rennes Métropole Agglomeration Council) decided to create a new-generation venue that would combine the strengths of the urban basin and Brittany, where professional, university and cultural exchanges could take place. This will make it a venue for events but also a place of production.
The most fundamental option made was to locate the congress center in the heart of the city. Thus, a Jacobin Monastery of the 15th century, listed historic monument, was chosen for the importance of its roots in the history of Rennes and Brittany.
