Evénement digital et studio TV mobile au Centre de Congrès de Lyon


DATE 16 March 2021

LOCATION Convention Center, Lyon 6th district

bioMérieux's first digital convention took place at the Lyon Convention Center on March 16, 2021. More than 7,000 employees from 44 countries attended the event remotely.

GL events' technical expertise and audiovisual equipment made it possible to broadcast a live streaming or replay of a real 2-hour television show, shot three times during the day to reach all geographic zones.



  1. Create a TV studio to interview several interlocutors in an event space that can accommodate a physically present audience

  2. Broadcast a live streaming and replay show in several regions of the world

  3. Offer a simultaneous translation system in several languages



  1. An ephemeral mobile TV studio in the Lyon Convention Center

Installed on the stage of the Amphitheater of the Lyon Convention Center, the mobile TV studio was used to host the first digital convention of the international bioMérieux group. Divided into four distinct spaces (lounge, desk, question box and piano) and equipped with a screen wall giving employees the opportunity to speak remotely, the ephemeral TV set was a real tool in the scripting of the convention.

The audiovisual equipment set up included 2 giant LED screens, 5 cameras as well as a video and sound recording and broadcasting control room.

About sixty people, including members of the management committee, were able to attend this event and follow the various video recordings live.

  1. Customized live or deferred streaming

Thanks to our secure streaming solutions, more than 7,000 bioMérieux Group employees were able to participate in this digital convention live or on replay, regardless of their geographical location.

More than 40 audiovisual technicians were mobilized to ensure the success of this digital event for an international audience. Their work in close collaboration with the integrated technical teams of the Lyon Convention Center ensured the smooth running of this digital convention without fail.

  1. Professional simultaneous translation

GL events, a specialist in simultaneous translation systems, met the customer's challenge of broadcasting their digital event in 44 countries with translation in 9 languages and 4 sign languages.

To complete this project, our teams installed no less than 18 simultaneous translation booths.

The bioMérieux Global Live Event was a unique experience for the teams at the Lyon Convention Center. GL events' audiovisual teams once again demonstrated their professionalism and worked in total synergy with our technical teams to ensure customer satisfaction.


In addition to the technical services and the extensive facilities provided, we were keen to support bioMérieux and the Théra agency, who were innovating with this no-net-work formula, since it involved 6 hours of live coverage. The gamble paid off when you see the results and the many testimonials from bioMérieux employees around the world.


The GL events Group's audiovisual division really supported us with commitment and professionalism from start to finish.
