Sud de France completes travel trade workshops in W. Canada

MONTREAL — Atout France, the France Tourism Development Agency, completed its third annual Western Canada tour late last month featuring Sud de France Languedoc-Roussillon region.

The travel trade workshops, focused on the Travel Academy program of Sud the France-Languedoc Roussillon, took place in Winnipeg, Edmonton and Calgary. In each city, travel agents showed great interest in the partners’ informative sessions.

Atout France and its partners, the Sud de France Languedoc-Roussillon tourism board, Air France KLM, Travelweek, Connaissance Travel and Tours, and TravelBrands reached 150 travel agents during this event.
