Excellent Time to Support Paris with M&I Programs
"We are very pleased to expand our relationship with The Gate Collection team, and very proud to now represent these outstanding Parisian hotels to the North American Meetings & Incentive marketplace," said Schultenover. "There couldn't be a better time to support the incredible city of Paris. 'The City of Light' is a tremendous destination, with enormous appeal for groups and attendees, and it is very important that the American market rallies and supports Paris now, just like we supported New York City and New Orleans, with our meetings, conventions and incentive travel programs following their impactful incidents. Additionally, considering currency changes over the past two years compared to the U.S. dollar, Paris is on sale by over 20%! We look forward to showcasing these very fine hotels and their truly vibrant and sophisticated city of Paris to the M.I.C.E. marketplace."
