Report of Showcase Paris Ile-de-France Workshop 2016

The Showcase Paris Ile-de-France Workshop aims to connect the tourism professionals of the Paris Region with ETOA Tour Operators through a series pre-programmed 12 minute meetings.

Description

The 4th edition of the Showcase Paris Ile-de-France workshop was held on 4th October 2016 at the Hôtel National des Invalides Army Museum.

46 tourism professionals from the Paris Region (museums, accommodation providers, incoming agencies, restaurants, cabarets, river cruise specialists, excursionists, shopping venues), including 27 new exhibitors compared to 2015, were given the opportunity to discover the offers of 29 ETOA tour operator members.

The CRT is the strategic partner of ETOA and Paris Ile-de-France is indeed the NO.1 destination in Europe in terms of sales for the vast majority of these tour operators.

In order to allow attendees to discover the activities of each exhibitor, the communications department of the CRT created an online brochure for exhibitors.

After the workshop, a half-day Paris Region fam. trip was organised for the tour operators.

The programme included: dinner at Le Réservoire, a commented visit of the new Villages Nature product in the Seine-et-Marne, dinner at the restaurant Le Chai at the Château de Ferrière, a guided visit of the Château de Champs-sur-Marne.

This 2016 edition once again demonstrated the interest tour operators have in our destination; the date is already in the diary for October 2017!
