REcentre presents the exhibition ECODESIGN
The Meuse-Rhine Euregion is active at the environmental and sustainability level. The local companies are pioneering. We think it is important to show good and valuable examples of companies with sustainable products and services. The exhibition has become a case example of what happens at economical level around environment and ecology. From cleaning products to hybrid cars, they have one thing in common: their sustainable nature.
Location: Ancienne Halle aux Viandes, Rue de la Boucherie 4, 4000 Liège.
Expo: 10th of October until 24th of October, free access, 1pm-6pm (Tue-Sat) ; 10am-3pm (Sun). A visit outside the opening hours can be arranged on request.
