Regional Tourism and Leisure Development Plan 2022-2026


The Region has launched the preparation of the next Regional Tourism and Leisure Development Plan* for Paris region 2022-2026, in which all territories and professionals will be involved.

*In French : Schéma Régional de Développement du Tourisme et des Loisirs (SRDTL)

Why a Regional Tourism and Leisure Development Plan for Paris region?

The Tourism Code sets the legal framework for regional intervention in tourism. It gives the Region the task of defining "the medium-term objectives of regional tourism development".

In this period of major crisis experienced by the sector, the Paris Region wanted to reaffirm its commitment to tourism through the development of a new strategy for 2022-2026. The Region would like this plan to be a moment of mobilisation and action, which will enable a renewed vision to emerge, as well as short and medium term solutions and projects to revive our economy.

On 11 June 2020, it entrusted the Paris Region Tourist Board with the task of drawing up the regional plan and leading a wide-ranging consultation process.

The Region's priorities for the next plan

4 priorities :

  • Strengthen the resilience of the Paris Region destination
  • Strengthen the diversity of the tourist offer to improve the distribution of flows in the Region
  • Mobilise the tourism and leisure industry to host major sporting events
