The Halle Tony Garnier provides unrivalled premises in the Lyon city centre staging artistic, cultural or other events. It has an extremely flexible technical structure and is used for tradeshows, exhibitions, conventions, symposia plays and it may be transformed into a concert hall within the space of a few hours.
Renovation and refurbishment work took place in 1999, this supported by Trizart Alliance’s feasibility studies on transformation system and specialized equipment. The purpose of the refurbishment was to improve spectators’ comfort as well as to better the reception area. The need of an easily transformable room has necessitated multiple stage adjustments as well as mobile and retractable risers, allowing different configurations. Loggia, storage facilities, infirmary, the reception hall, bars, cloakrooms, heating and air conditioning systems, as well as catwalks to access risers have all been refurbished, renovated and adjusted.
