France Is Always A Good Idea: 8
Reasons to Plan Your Next Incentive in France   

 

Number 1 Tourist Destination in
the World:

 

France receives the highest number of tourists in the world. The UNWTO –
World Tourism Organisation figures indicate that France welcomed 84.5 million
visitors in 2015 with a 22.7% increase in the growth of arrivals from Asian
countries.

 

Easy Accessibility:  

 

France is home to 11
international airports, one of the  longest
and safest road networks in Europe and 2,000 km of high speed railway tracks. Its
geographical positioning also provides convenient surface and air access to
other European capitals. A total of 31 weekly direct flights on Air France, Air
India and Jet Airways connect India to France.

 

Bienvenue à Paris

Efforts put in by Air France and the 
ADP (Aeroport de Paris) make your airport experience in Paris fairly
simple and welcoming! A bouquet of services and facilities such as Meet and Greet
(on request), signboards in different languages, multilingual information
counters, the Air France lounge experience for its business and club class
passengers and diverse shopping options, ensures time well spent at the
airport!

 

A Kaleidoscope of Landscapes:

From quaint villages that embody the true essence of France's way of
life to coastlines that stretch across miles, to resplendent vineyards and
majestic mountains - France spoils you for choice and pampers you with its
hospitality! 

 

Inspiring Venues:

Want inspiration for venues for your next event? Choose from 41 UNESCO
World Heritage sites, more than 40 000 castles, abbeys, manors, churches and 8
000 museums that France is home to. France’s hotel industry offers a selection
of venues that serve as perfect platforms for your events.  

 

Delectable Sensory  Initiatives:

French cuisine is
unparalleled and the Gastronomic Meal of the French has the honour of being
added to the UNESCO Intangible Heritage of Humanity List since November 2010. Let
the delectable flavours of French gastronomy surprise you at cafes, bistros,
gourmet and Michelin-starred restaurants. The role of French gastronomy in
France's culture and daily way of life is only enhanced by the fact that
celebrated chef Guy Savoy has recently been appointed as Atout France's  Tourism Ambassador - MICE.

 

France offers you:

 

  • Talented chefs and innovative culinary expertise offering 582
    Michelin starred restaurants.
  • More than 380 wines with a label of quality and more than
    10,000 wine cellars for visits and wine tasting.
  • 57 wine tourism destinations in France have been bestowed with
    the prestigious "Vignobles and
    Decouvertes
    " which is the official oenotourism label conferred on
    destinations meeting with select criteria. 
  • The presence of Indian caterers in Paris,
    Nice and several French cities to address the needs of special incentive groups.

 

 

Safety:

France accords great importance to the safety of its visitors. To
enhance safety measures, the Government of France maintains a threat rating
system known locally as "Vigipirate''. Under this plan, during times of heightened
security, the government augments police with armed forces and increases
visibility at airports, train and metro stations, and other locations such as
schools, major tourist attractions, and other government institutions.

 

A Sustainable Commitment:

France's destinations and event professionals are actively involved in
integrating a sustainable approach. This includes an active commitment towards
minimizing the impact of events on the environment and facilitating social
connections.

 

A Dedicated
Team of Professionals:

A proven track record of hosting successful events lends credibility to
the fact that France offers its clients a network of dedicated and talented
professionals for the organization of events and activities.

its number of Indian business travellers, France offers you customised
solutions. Choose from a selection of venues, activities, hotels and incoming
tour agencies that are more than happy to counsel and curate a programme in
line with your budget. Check well in advance on peak and off-peak dates for the

professionals to create a comprehensive programme that includes a gamut of offbeat
