We look forward to welcoming you in the very nice city of Lyon for our 12th EIASM Talent Management Workshop.

Lyon has been growing and evolving for 2,000 years!

Lyon in the air!

With a rich history stretching back more than 2,000 years, Lyon has taken shape over time, presenting visitors today with neighbourhoods that have a unique atmosphere and reflect the city’s evolution. Since its foundation by the Romans in 43 BCE, on Fourvière Hill, the city has expanded from west to east, building on the advantages offered by its two hills and two rivers. Included on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1998, Lyon’s four historic districts cover 500 hectares, taking visitors on a journey back through time, from Antiquity to the present day!


From the ancient theatres and abundant ruins that date back to Gallo-Roman times, winding through the Middle Ages and Renaissance influences in Vieux-Lyon, from the classical buildings on the Presqu'île, to the canuts and silk manufacturing workshops in the Croix-Rousse…Over time, the city stretched itself along the banks of the river Saône, later encompassing the Rhône and beyond, and today has reached the Confluence area, all while managing to preserve its precious heritage


The remarkable urban continuity was recognised by UNESCO as an integral part of World Heritage. Visitors can view 2,000 years of history from the panoramic viewpoint on Fourvière Hill. From the 'forum vetus', which gave the hill its name, the city grew along the banks of the Saône and onto the Presqu'île, leading to the creation of the largest Renaissance district in France, before beginning its "conquest of the East" beyond the Rhône, from the eighteenth century onwards.

Expect to fall in love with Lyon again... Lyon, I love you!
