Mais Oui! 5 Reasons To Host Your Meeting or Incentive in France

France is a country of inspiration, tradition and mystery. A land whose richness and beauty offer many means of discovery for body, mind and soul. Beautiful, cosmopolitan, dynamic, glamorous and authentic, France is everything you need for your future events.

1. Iconic attractions, vibrant discoveries 

France has countless gorgeous landmarks and monuments, and the variety of the landscape is breathtaking. From the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris to the castles of the Loire Valley, from the tiny fishermen villages of the French Riviera to the wine estates of Bordeaux, your French discovery journey can have multiple faces, but you will always be marveled by what you see. 

France has 43 UNESCO World Heritage sites, which make it one of the most interesting destination to discover. Culture and history are everywhere in France. 

The country has so many architectural wonders, from the prehistoric cave paintings in Lascaux to the opulence of Versailles castle, that one trip to France simply won’t be enough time to view everything. The sheer variety of regions provides a wonderful playground for all kinds of activities. 

2. The world capital of gastronomy

French Cuisine is world famous, and the country offers plenty of amazing gourmet experiences. Normandy, Provence, Alsace, Brittany Burgundy or Corsica… French gastronomy as a whole is listed in UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists!

France is keen to protect its status as the world’s food capital, as evidenced by its “homemade” food label scheme designed to discourage chefs from using frozen or ready-prepared ingredients and its numerous products with protected AOP geographical protection labels. 

From appetizers to desserts - and let's not forget the famous French baguette! - every moment of your French journey will delight your taste. It is really part of the French experience and maybe the best part of it! 

3. A sophisticated yet authentic destination and an inspirational journey

An impressive hub of arts, culture, fashion, gastronomy and architecture -- France has it all. France has always been a land of inspiration for artists - from painters to fashion designers, famous DJs to world leaders, and furniture designers to architects. Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Hugo, Dumas – these are just a few artists who lived and worked in France. With strong literary, musical and visual arts scenes, art surrounds you in France.  

With world-class shopping and a dynamic fashion scene, France is also the temple of fashion. Fashion is a deep-rooted aspect of French culture. French designers have created the most known fashion brands in the world such as Chanel, Yves St Laurent, Christian Dior and Givenchy.

Come, be inspired and enjoy this sophisticated yet authentic destination! 

4. Experience the French "Art de Vivre" 

The French Art de Vivre or the "art of living" is a combination of elements that take root in the history and culture of France. It is appreciating the finer things in life along with appreciating the beauty of every day.
