Adding CERN to the shopping list

Busy shoppers put trolleys to one side to visit the CERN stand at the “Genève internationale” exhibition at Balexert, the largest shopping centre in Geneva, from 16 to 20 April.

Through practical activities and chats, CERN guides helped visitors to discover more about CERN’s research, while highlighting what our new visitor centre, CERN Science Gateway, has to offer.

“Thank you to all the CERN guides who joined the stand over the five days of the exhibition,” says François Briard, head of visitor and event operations. “Your enthusiasm was fantastic and contagious.”
