Batibouw 2023: building tomorrow

This edition will inevitably be placed under the sign of alternatives for energy consumption, in order to help the builder and renovator of tomorrow to adopt the right reflexes in the current context.

In addition to the area dedicated to the energy issue, other themes related to housing will be presented in different areas. Now fully part of BATIBOUW, the former Cocoon show will be given a whole hall, displaying the latest trends in decoration, lifestyle, tableware and much more. The Flex-Living zone, which was a great success last year, will be back, presenting alternatives to traditional housing (tiny-house, containers, garden-offices, etc.).

The BATIBOUW fair is also, and above all, a place to exchange know-how. For this reason, a MatchMaking area will be set up in Hall 5, where neutral partners will advise builders and renovators on an individual and personal basis. And finally, the BATIBOUW Academy will offer a rich and varied programme of conferences, demos and workshops!
