Description

We organised two workshops, held on 18th and 19th May in Madrid and Lisbon, with the Spain and Portugal bureau of Atout France.  

The main tour-operators, travel agencies and events agencies from Spanish, Portuguese and South American markets were targeted.  

Initially planned for 2020, this roadshow is included in our 2022 joint Paris Region Tourist Board-Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau action plan. 

 

In total, about 70 Spanish and Portuguese professionals attended the workshops to meet our team and partners and to discover all the new features of the destination. 

Before each workshop, a presentation of the Paris Region destination was given to our travel trade guests. 

 

A "Business" dinner in Lisbon finished off the roadshow. 

10 business representatives were in attendance alongside the Paris Region Tourist Board, the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau, France Convention Bureau - Spain & Portugal Region Office. Those in attendance were exhibitors or visitors to exhibitions and fairs held in the capital region. 

 

An outstanding range of Paris Region tourism professionals were in attendance alongside the Paris Region Tourist board!
