On the occasion of Shanghai 2010, Lille Métropole opened a representative office in the centre of the city. The Lille Europe Pavilion was one of five French pavilions at the Universal Exhibition. For three months, the pavilion was a place of convivial encounters, showcasing the culture, food, artists, business innovation and dynamism of Lille Métropole in the spirit of the major events it is so good at producing such as Lille 2004 European Capital of Culture or lille3000.
Encompassing the mobile Futurotextiles exhibition, various artistic installations and a Maison Meert tasting bar, the pavilion served as a meeting point for natives of the Nord region who have settled in China, and as an original space in which to welcome the press and the Chinese or international public visiting the Universal Exhibition.
Resolutely oriented towards demonstrating the economic vitality of Lille and its region, the Lille Europe Pavilion remains a living showcase for the creativity of our companies and the excellence of our industrial clusters.
