France's third-largest exhibition centre is launching a programme of modernisation and renovation work. The aim of the project is to turn Eurexpo Lyon into an even more attractive and sustainable venue, as part of an eco-responsible event policy.

2024, the year Eurexpo Lyon modernises its facilities   

Eurexpo Lyon, France's third-largest exhibition centre is being modernised! From the end of March to the end of December 2024, an extensive programme of renovation work will be undertaken to make our venue even more attractive and sustainable.

The work will upgrade the venue's event facilities and improve the customer experience, in line with our sustainable development goals.

This transformation is driven by the overall CSR policy of the GL events group. It will notably involve carrying out refurbishments and installing equipment and fittings designed to reduce the consumption of consumables on site, contribute to the production of green energy, while optimising the layout to provide more modern and functional spaces for customers.

The entire project will create an outstanding modern exhibition venue that is both attractive and more environmentally-friendly, in order to host your upcoming and future events.

Outside, photovoltaic shades will be installed over a large part of our car parks, and the landscape of the park will be redesigned, notably with a selection of plants and flowers that reflect the colours of the region. The Eurexpo Lyon facility will also benefit from various renovations throughout the building, including the complete refurbishment of  some of our reception areas and meeting rooms, as well as a totally new floor for the iconic Place des Lumières. In addition, all the exterior lighting will be upgraded to full LED. 

You can follow the progress of the work through the dedicated space we have set up below.

Accessibility during the works

The photovoltaic shades will be installed zone-by-zone, in order to ensure visitors can continue to access the venue easily and ensure a positive visitor experience. 

A number of measures will be put in place to provide the best possible welcome for visitors throughout the duration of the renovation works, with appropriate signage and secure pedestrian traffic flows. 

As part of the project organisation, we have drawn up parking plans and Eurexpo Lyon has put in place the requisite signage and measures to guarantee a high-quality visitor experience.

Please note, during large-scale events, we always recommend visitors prioritise the use of public transport to promote soft mobility and ensure smooth access.


A sustainable development model for present-day and future events

The work being carried out at our Eurexpo Lyon venue is part of the CSR policy promoted by the "Lyon events" banner brand, which groups together the GL events Group's venues in Lyon. This translates into specific environmental, social and societal commitments, and the implementation of tangible actions across the 4 venues in Lyon (Lyon Convention Centre, Eurexpo Lyon, the Matmut Stadium, and La Sucrière), in order to reduce our carbon footprint, contribute to the circular economy and promote the region and its diversity.

This being said, we are firmly aware of the ecological footprint of events and we actively aim to reduce it. At the same time, we are also convinced that by "bringing people together", we contribute to building and reinforcing the social values and bonds that our societies are so much in need of today.
