Connecting activity in an economic hub
As the capital of the region, Lille is the beating heart of Hauts-de-France. The region combines a prominent position in French economy with international appeal for investors.
A great gateway to the south
Situated on an international intersection, Lille benefits of an excellent location. The city is open-mindedly facing north, but is as well a great gateway to the south. From Belgium, there’s an excellent connection by land and by train. The latter option offers excellent connection to the rest of France without having to pass through Paris.
As an ambassador of the new ‘Hello Lille’ brand, WTC Lille highlights the city’s strengths. First of all, the WTC emphasizes the region’s role as gateway by supporting local entrepreneurs in their export activities and by inspiring and connecting foreign companies.
There’s a firm ‘Flemish connection’ with Ghent and Kortrijk as nearby cities.
An intercontinental intersection
Due to it’s location in the administrative heart of the country, the Ankara WTC has a privileged perspective on Turkey’s trade and business opportunities. The country as a whole offers an intercontinental panorama, combining Europe and Asia and facing Africa.
