Due to its strategic position, its easy accessibility by road, the TGV (only 2h38 from Paris and 3h from Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle and a direct arrival in the city center in 4 minutes from the TGV station) or the airport from Marseille Provence (120 national and international destinations 30 mins by train, 45 mins by car), its priceless heritage, its intense cultural activities and its comfortable hotel capacity, Avignon is a prime location for hosting exceptional events in the heart of Provence.
The food industry is one of the main economic forces – AGROPARC, a Technopole of Excellence in the field of Food Intelligence, is home to the largest business incubator in the PACA region. It is historically dedicated to promoting food intelligence and is opening up to other sectors such as the digital sector (Avignon obtained the French Tech label in 2015).
Avignon has three competitiveness clusters: Innov'Alliance for food, well-being and naturalness, Safe Cluster for Aeronautics and Trimatec, a cluster serving eco-technology.
