La mer XXL, the exhibition: In 365 days, dive into the ocean
Thursday, July 5, 2018 1:19 PM
In one year’s time, from June 29th to July 10th 2019, the Beaujoire exhibition centre in Nantes will host an international exhibition dedicated to the oceans: La mer XXL. Organised by Exponantes and the Ouest-France group, in partnership with the Crédit Maritime, the aim of this veritable “universal exhibition of the sea” is to help the 100,000 expected visitors to understand that our future is intimately linked to the maritime world in all domains. This will be made possible via a number of XXL events that will allow the public to discover the oceans and associated human activities. ¼ of the total exhibition space has already been allocated to a number of actors in the maritime world.
La mer XXL, the exhibition
La mer XXL will take place in one year, from June 29th to July 10th 2019. This international exhibition dedicated to the oceans and intended for the general public is organised by Exponantes and the Ouest-France group, in partnership with the Crédit Maritime. It will be held in the exceptional setting of the Beaujoire exhibition centre in Nantes, covering 66,000 sqm (including 38,000 sqm of covered space), on the banks of the River Erdre. An amazing space with a variety of different atmospheres, offering an invitation to discovery and wonder.
There is no single event that allows all those involved in the maritime sector to present their activities, their values and their savoir-faire to a non-professional public, in sectors covering energy, biotechnologies, defence, transport and much more. This is the ambition of La mer XXL: to give a voice to all those who live for and through the oceans.
This exhibition, sponsored by Jacques Perrin, will address themes about the sea as a source of energy, food, care, employment, dreams and happiness, using specific installations, demonstrations, simulations, photo exhibitions and videos...
An event to explore with all the family whatever the age. A large number of XXL events for the public to discover the oceans and associated human activities. Because the sea is our present and especially our future.
