THE BOURSE BUSINESS DISTRICT
Just like the Palais Brongniart, the neighbourhood around the former Paris stock exchange is reinventing itself, and remains one of the city's major business districts.
A PALACE OPEN TO THE FUTURE
Located in the heart of Paris, the Bourse business district has a prime location. Located between the Place de la Concorde and the Louvre, it sits alongside the Opéra Garnier neighbourhood and the Grands Boulevards, important centres of Parisian life.
The neighbourhood takes its name from the famous Palais Brongniart. Formerly the headquarters of the Paris stock exchange, it gave a unique economic dynamic to the neighbourhood. Many companies, in particular financial ones, put their headquarters in various streets around it. Today, the stock exchange is completely electronic. But the neighbourhood retains the office buildings.
The Palais Brongniart has oriented itself towards the future. Currently managed by GL Events, this illustrious monument with its colonnade has become a centre for various events. Congresses, seminars, conferences, fairs, shows and galas are organised there. On the second level, there is Le Camping, a structure dedicated to launching start-ups, and the European School of Internet Trades. This transformation is leading the Palais Brongniart to become a leading player in tomorrow's economy. The influence of the Palais Brongniart on its neighbourhood is so great that it is providing it with new perspectives.
