The Paris Committee

In 1998, 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.
