A solidarity-oriented Christmas market showcasing the achievements and craftsmanship of workers with disabilities

On 18 December 2021, the Lyon Convention Centre, a GL events venue, hosted the first eco-responsible, solidarity-oriented Christmas market  baptised "les Halles Inclusives" (Inclusive Market), organised by the Prête-moi tes ailes Association and sponsored by the GL events Group. All the exhibitors at this Christmas market were people with disabilities who were participating in the event to present their craft products and services to visitors.

This inaugural event was a genuine success, attracting many visitors and actively serving to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities. GL events' teams in Lyon are proud to have contributed to this unique project by working side by side with the Prête-moi tes ailes association from the very outset.
