Paris: a jewel case of light for an unforgettable professional event
Paris, a unique, monumental, prestigious destination that can transform a professional event.
Behind Bangkok and London (damn English!), the City of Light is the 3e the most visited city in the world with more than 16 million visitors in 2016*. And business tourism is in full swing, with more than 15 million overnight stays in Greater Paris in 2017. A record volume over the last ten years. Despite pollution, strikes and... the unseemly nature of Parisians, the capital has lost none of its beauty and attractiveness. A city of history, culture and sport, with the hosting of the 2024 Olympic Games, of which Accor is an official partner, the Iron Lady's throne remains the beacon of France.
Located at the crossroads of European and world trade, Île-de-France is France's leading economic region and one of the leading regions in Europe. Composed of 8 departments, it is home to more than 12 million inhabitants. Thanks to the density of its rail, road and air networks, Paris is the leading destination for the organisation of any type of professional event: conventions, seminars, congresses, etc.

Incentive ideas in Paris
Incentive activities are not lacking in Paris. With more than 150 museums and many places steeped in history that often open their doors to corporate events for private visits, the capital is above all a unique cultural centre. And if you get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, many equally remarkable sites can be reached in less than an hour: Versailles, Chantilly, Vaux-le-Vicomte... or Claude Monet's Gardens in Giverny.
World capital of luxury and gastronomy, Paris also offers a unique choice of shows and starred restaurants. A dream to make sure that Paris always remains a party.
