More than 28 suppliers from all over France will come to London this month to take part in a workshop, France for You,
at the London Renaissance St Pancras Hotel.
Event buyers are invited to come along on 29 March for short
pre-scheduled appointments, allowing them to meet the 'crème de la crème' of
the French events industry in one afternoon.
“We have invested £5,000 into a specially designed
user-friendly online platform, through which visitors can see the list of
exhibitors, their description and make a meeting,” said Fidan Agalarowa, head of business tourism & travel trade,
Atout France. “The workshop is organised during the afternoon, so event planners
can be out of the office only half a day and make up to 12 meetings in the sumptuous
surroundings of the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.”
She added: “The networking evening will be held in the famous
Hansom Hall and we have prepared a lot of surprises. For example, a new
Park visit by Disney Business
Solutions, or the Cannes' Walk of Fame, a wine tasting from Rhone-Alpes or a
beer tasting from North of France.”
There will also be a prize draw offering the chance to win a
stay at five different hotels. Exhibitors span hotels, DMCs and convention bureaux,
including the Cannes
Convention Bureau, Saint-Tropez Tourisme, Marseille Congres Convention Bureau,
So Toulouse Convention Bureau, Only Lyon, Nord France Convention
Bureau and Le Touquet Paris-Plage Tourism.
The event starts at 2.30pm. To register contact Julie Mayeras via
