A dedicated joint booth with all projects was brought for the event in order to represent the different projects as a whole.

The audience was diversified, ranging from families, schools and kids (that were addressed to labs organised with ambassadors of the European Climate Pact) to brilliant young entrepreneurs who just launched their sustainable businesses. Per each type of audience, the Corner had information and opportunities to offer, whether it was more educational with Transition2BIO or more business-oriented with RuralBioUp, URBAN TECH, FOODCoST and BlueRev.

The Corner had an average of 30 participants per hour with peaks of over 50, all initially attracted by the exhibition of bio-based products from Transition2BIO.
