Global Industrie opens industry to the general public!

20 % of the 40,800 visitors to Global Industrie were 20% school students and job seekers. A remarkable performance for a professional event.

Make no mistake: industry is attractive, modern, environmentally friendly… and a tremendous source of jobs!

Credit for this performance must go in particular to Global Industrie Campus which dedicated 1 000 m² of floor space to education, training and employment, to put companies in contact with their future employees. An initiative which will be renewed in 2021… together with several other initiatives aimed at the general public to be announced shortly on this website!
