Conferences, meetings, and large-scale events are a major part of the business world. Certainly, it’s important to accomplish the goals that have been set forth but the entire event doesn’t have to be about work. Fun and exciting destinations make the event memorable and allow attendees to relax at the end of the day.

You could hold it in Vegas but most guests will think, “Been there, done that”. Expand your thinking. Europe has many exciting and beautiful nations and France is near the top of the list. There are several good reasons to hold your event there.


The Landmarks

You may think planning an event overseas is too big a task but you can use the services of a destination management company France. The Western European nation is home to some of the most famous and thrilling buildings, statues, and other structures on the face of the Earth. The Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and the Arc d’Triumph are just three of Paris’ landmarks that should be seen in person.

There are also many landmarks outside of Paris such as the Pont du Gard near Marseilles, the tallest of the old Roman aqueduct bridges. You can also visit the Palace of Versailles or soak up some history at Omaha Beach in Normandy.

The Food

If there is one thing France is known for, it’s the cuisine. French cooking has a long and distinguished history that starts in the Middle Ages. Upscale, innovative, and delicious, a meal in a French restaurant is sublime. From tender meats to hearty vegetables, to an amazing pastry dessert, your tastebuds will be thrilled. Don’t forget the wine. The French pride themselves on some of the world’s finest reds, whites, roses, and champagnes. Many types of wine are named for regions in France.

The Art

France is home to the Louvre where you can see DaVinci’s incredible Mona Lisa and the Venus deMilo as well as paintings and sculptures from many of history’s greatest artists. There is also artwork from ancient Egypt, classical Greece, and ancient Rome as well as from other eras of antiquity.

Don’t forget the architecture. France has many buildings that are works of art in and of themselves. You can take a tour and enjoy some of these amazing structures.

The Nightlife

Since the days of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Gertrude Stein, Americans have been enjoying French nightlife. Bars and clubs abound. You can dance to some techno, enjoy delicious adult beverages, or watch one of France’s most famous dances, the can-can.

The Beaches

Some of the most beautiful coastal areas in the world are in the south of France along the Mediterranean. Beautiful beaches, quaint villages, and cities such as Nice and Cannes are places where you can swim, sun, and maybe rub elbows with some jet setters. While you’re there, enjoy some local seafood.

Business events should include as much fun as they do business. You can give your attendees an experience they will never forget by holding your next event in France.
