The Leisure Tourism team continues to strengthen its presence through targeted missions abroad. It also works on key markets for Paris: Australia, United States, Japan, Middle East and India.

The Paris Committee

Faced with the emergence of new markets (whose numbers by 2020 were expected to be high) with complex cultural habits, the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau set up the Paris Committee with two objectives: firstly, to prepare the destination and its professionals for huge numbers of arrivals of new nationalities; and secondly, to establish Paris as a major destination with regard to local operators. Since 1998, the Paris Committee has been constantly evolving to adapt to the changes in distribution channels and to the ever more marked presence of competitor destinations.

The Office continues to strengthen its presence in countries where the tourism industry is being created and structured by relying throughout the year on Atout France's international network, which represents 33 offices in 30 countries.

The Sales Manual

The Paris Committee Sales Manual 2017 is a professional publication produced by the Leisure Section of the Marketing Department and aimed especially at the Paris Committee markets (South East Asia, mainland China, South Korea, Mexico, Russia and CIS). It lists sites in Paris and the region positioned on the Leisure and/or Business segment according to 4 categories: Leisure, Tours & Transport, Shopping and Accommodation. It is an essential tool for all foreign tour operators looking for new products and business contacts to initiate negotiations or develop existing relations.
