Official ceremonies

As the world's leading civil nuclear platform, WNE is supported by the industry's key players: institutions, politicians, international agencies.

Each year, WNE is honored to welcome high-level guests during an inaugural visit and ceremony: thank you to them for their indispensable support to nuclear energy and climate protection. WNE also ends on an official note with a closing ceremony attended by international representatives.

WNE 2023 was an opportunity to deliver a message of hope, resolutely turned towards the future.
