CREATING VALUE FOR TERRITORIES

With more than 90 offices worldwide, GL events provides customers with local service reflecting a twofold commit- ment to creating value and operational performance. Through its three strategic business units, the Group intervenes as a stakeholder and contributor to local life by developing partnerships with entities forming its eco- nomic, industrial, tourism and cultural fabric.

GL EVENTS VENUES: WHEN SITES CONTRIBUTE TO THE VITALITY OF TERRITORIES

In addition to its role as a manager of venues, GL events Venues also seeks to intervene as a contributor of regional development. In the service of public policy, exhibition and convention centres represent essential tools for promoting business tourism and economic vitality.

Each venue is a stakeholder in its local network, under- taking to develop lasting ties with its institutional and economic partners.

This positioning is achieved by several lines of action:

strengthening the territorial network by facilitating relations with stakeholders of different communities (companies, industry associations, learned societies etc.),

contributing to local vitality by supporting regional strategies, driving economic and industrial development initiatives, promoting local business sectors, establishing partnerships with higher education and research institu- tions, civic engagement,

working with local suppliers to stimulate the local econ- omy,

promoting the territory.
