September 2022, Congrès et Expositions de Bordeaux becomes BEAM. By becoming Bordeaux Event And More, we enter a new era.
As a true ambassador of the city of Bordeaux, we actively participate in the attractiveness of the territory and the influence of the Bordeaux brand. To want to make Bordeaux grow is also to grow with it.
Our era is a wonderful playground for those who like to take on challenges.
The economic, energy, environmental, social and technological challenges we face require us to find better, more creative, more responsible, more concrete and more collective solutions.
A paradigm shift that is a real driver for us, a source of additional motivation. And it constantly pushes us to engage with our clients, our audiences and our partners.
We are no longer simply operators of sites dedicated to professional tourism, nor even simple organizers of trade shows or fairs, we are “meeting creators”:
Let us be inspired and we will become inspiring.
Let’s become even more … This is the strength of this “MORE” that embodies us and that pushes us to be more human, more responsible, more innovative, closer, more radiant… More BEAM!
We are connexion creators!
We shape your meetings, business creators and emotion generators… our team has at heart to conceive high quality events thanks to its know-how and its experience. Alone or in co-production, we design events from A to Z…

Our capacity for innovation
BEAM, an actor of change
Our team has been committed for several years to a global approach to digitalization and has made it one of the strong points of its strategy.
Launched in 2015, the « BEAM Lab » is based on a call for projects from the regional digital ecosystem. The principle of this real “incubator” of ideas: BEAM makes its events, buildings and spaces available to digital players, enabling them to participate in experiments and demonstrations.
In short: test “live” their services or other innovative tools!
Several experiments around connected objects, dynamic visitor mapping and data-analysis have already been implemented in 2015. This global digitalization program is reflected in a cross-functional and collaborative corporate project. It brings together representatives from different departments within the company in a working group called “BEAM Connect“.
