This ambition is legitimate for the reference show in a nation where tourism plays a major role in the overall economy – as underlined by Matthias Fekl, Secretary of State for Foreign Trade, Tourism Promotion and French Expatriates (pictured left). The exhibitors and international visitors have answered the call, as the show this year will be hosting more than 160 destinations and the number of professional visitors should top the 32,000 mark. While around 22% of these visitors were foreign last year, this level is also expected to rise in 2016. Nous allons adresser une clientèle provinciale, les seniors et les comités d’entreprises afin de développer le tourisme en basse saison. # 15 MAP Pro BENJAMIN TÉTART Directeur, Manche Tourisme Nous avons un rôle de conseiller auprès des professionnels du tourisme.
