An event organized by Congrès et Expositions de Bordeaux

Craftsman of the ephemeral

The event is in a way, the DNA of CEB, whose activity is centered around 2 big poles:

  • Organisation of public events and trade fairs (Bordeaux International Fair, Vivons Maison, Vivons Création, Vivons 100% Sport, Vivons Evasion, Jumping International de Bordeaux, Vinitech-Sifel, Aerosolutions, etc.).
  • Hosting of public events and trade fairs (Salon des Elus Locaux d’Aquitaine, Congrès des Observatoires Régionaux de la Santé, Salon du Chocolat, Critérium de Sciences Po…)

These two poles represent more than 400 events hosted every year on our various sites.
