PrEsentation OF Europa Expo
The non-profit organisation Collections & Patrimoines took off thanks to the success of the exhibition “Tout Hergé” [devoted to the creator of Tintin] organised in 1991 in Welkenraedt. After the “Made in Belgium” exhibition, which was held as part of the 175th anniversary of Belgium’s independence, the company Europa 50 S.C.R.L-F.S was set up to support Collections & Patrimoines and to complete the range of tasks related to the organisation of exhibitions, from the largest to the most modest. Today, the two companies work together and divide the work between them: Europa 50 is responsible for production, while Collections & Patrimoines is in charge of organisation and realisation.
Europa Expo, born out of this collaboration, contributes to the promotion of cultural heritage in Belgium.
Its successes are in keeping with the vocation of the non-profit organisation “Collections & Patrimoines”, founded in 1989. It has included in its statutes the promotion of Belgian and international cultural heritage. This objective is implemented through its exhibitions, which focus on the promotion of Belgian artists or authors or major figures of international stature. In this respect, Europa Expo has shown an undeniable capacity for innovation. Far from static exhibitions, it introduces from the outset a new concept in its organisation aimed at making sure that the visitor is totally immersed in the atmosphere of the theme. This original concept, which is reflected in the use of numerous three-dimensional sets on a human scale and in the search for original and exclusive documents, contributes to the success of its events.
