Located right on the doorstep of Toulouse, just 8 km from its international airport, the Centre International de Conférences lies at the very heart of Europe's leading meteorology Centre. Since it was first opened in 1992, the CIC has hosted companies, scientists and engineers from a wide range of technical fields. It shares the same grounds as the three major divisions of Météo-France - operations, research and training.
In a high-tech and comfortable environment, this user-friendly conference centre was designed with people in mind.
