The dates are set! From 25 to 27 March 2025 in Lyon, the Eurexpo exhibition centre will host the next edition of the BEPOSITIVE show. 

Renewable energy, construction and buildings, climate control and electrical engineering, wood energy – BEPOSITIVE, the long-established meeting place for the energy and building markets, brings together a whole ecosystem of players and solutions to chart the course towards an energy-efficient, low-carbon world. The goal is to work collectively to activate all the potential and opportunities of the energy transition.

A transition is essential, and we must pool our strenghts at key events such as bepositive

Éditeur de texte


The energy transition has begun. The climate challenges we face make large-scale, fast and efficient deployment essential. As the world faces up to the climate challenge and the energy crisis, the energy and construction sectors are in the vanguard, contributing to national and European commitments, highlighting new industrial players and inventing the energy and lowcarbon solutions of tomorrow. They must also adapt to uncertain conditions. New energy sources, new technologies, new materials, new building methods, new regulations – the energy transition brings with it a dynamic of global transformation. More than ever before, energy sobriety, renewables and innovation are core issues in planning a trajectory for optimised, responsible energy management.

In this context, BEPOSITIVE fosters dialogue and a common approach across the markets by bringing together all the players in the building and energy sectors, who deploy, industrialise and install new solutions for the energy transition. The exhibition provides concrete answers across the exhibition’s four main themes. All the stakeholders in the energy transition are expected over the exhibition’s three days, trading thoughts and discovering the latest innovations the market has to offer.

Bepositive breaks down barriers for greater synergy between players


Focused exclusively on the BtoB market, the show gathers together all the players in the energy transition, whether they supply solutions (manufacturers, producers, equipment suppliers etc.) or deploy them (decision-makers, tradespeople and installers, traders and local authorities). 
A real meeting place for fruitful exchanges, BEPOSITIVE is an accelerator for business development. It fosters new relations between the sector’s professionals and people involved in the energy transition at both national and international level. And in a fast-moving context rich in opportunities, breaking down barriers between sectors, making projects universally applicable and forging links between all stakeholders are priorities in the quest for innovation to overcome the major challenges of the energy transition.



Éditeur de texte

"The energy transition is an imperative but also a challenge, and energy and construction professionals and regional stakeholders are in the front line. The challenge is also an opportunity!
Bringing together complementary technologies and sectors, BEPOSITIVE is the focal point for responding positively to these priorities. More than ever before, it is time to deploy concrete, innovative solutions. And that is our promise. To make it possible, we need a place for people to come together, combining business with pleasure, where we can offer rich, varied content that looks to the future while learning lessons from experience, and where we break down the barriers between sectors and share expertise. A key trade show for energy transition issues such as BEPOSITIVE gives us the chance to transform a shared challenge into multiple opportunities together and to accelerate change."

BEPOSITIVE Exhibition Director

Bepositive 2025, concrete actions in support of ESG


The GL events group is committed to an ESG approach (Environment, Social and Governance), which will be deployed at the next edition of the BEPOSITIVE show. The need for this approach, deeply rooted in the group's activities, had become obvious. The BEPOSITIVE show seeks to limit its environmental impact in practical ways and is putting dedicated action plans in place. It aims to reduce its carbon footprint, limit the use of disposable materials to maximise the circular economy, and to develop diversity and the local benefit from our events.

Several concrete initiatives are already in place for BEPOSITIVE 2025:

  • Digital badges (no more badge printing), 

  • Integration of recyclable or reusable materials (wood, cardboard, etc.) into the design of stands and communal areas, 

  • Partnership with Valdelia, a green organisation approved by the French ministry for ecology, sustainable development and energy, for furnishing waste,

  • Recovery of unsold goods by the association “Le Chaînon Manquant” to combat food waste, 

  • Recovery of edible oils by Bioval’huiles,

  • Elimination of plastic and use of renewable materials and eco-friendly compostable containers, dishes and packaging by on-site caterers,

  • Providing charging terminals for electric vehicles in the Eurexpo car parks
