A resounding success for this latest gathering

They both kept their promises ! 

In 2019, the BePOSITIVE exhibition once again confirmed its place as the big national gathering on the energy and digital transition in buildings and regions. It notably joined forces for the first time with Lighting Days, France’s major event and exhibition in lighting and LED technology. For three days from 13th to 15th February at Eurexpo Lyon, the joint exhibitions swirled to the rhythm of innovations, trends, business, exchanges, feedback, accounts.

Together, they proved a real success, their themes being very complementary, underpinning new synergies and stimulating new business opportunities !
