“I have lived in Bordeaux for 25 years, so it was natural for me to start the adventure here. During my experiences as a prescriber in waste and water for local authorities, I realised that major generalist trade shows are no longer sufficient to generate regional development in the sector. I wanted to organise a meeting in Bordeaux, in order to promote regional exchanges. We set up the first edition in 4 months in April 2017 with Au-dela Evenements-Evasion agency, and then by ourselves since June 2019, at Hangar 14in a port environment with all the infrastructures that Bordeaux offers in terms of visibility.

We went from 68 exhibitors and 650 participants in 2017 to 125 exhibitors and 1,480 participants in 2019. The next edition will take place in a larger site in 2021, in order to adapt to this growth. Bordeaux remains our emblematic site, even if the event has since developed in Aix-en-Provence, Strasbourg, Lille, Vichy and Toulouse.
