Every year, the French Riviera attracts millions of travellers to events, both professional and non-professional. Festivals, conventions or symposia usually follow one after another, but now the agenda looks empty. Indeed, the pandemic affecting the whole world is not only forcing us to remain under lockdown, but is also hindering the cultural and professional development of certain regions. DMC agencies that organise business and corporate travel or accompany event organisers are, therefore, also impacted by the upheavals the world is going through.
In order to contain the coronavirus epidemic, France has recently tightened its measures. As of March 10, the government did not wish to hinder the free movement of French citizens on the territory. Nevertheless, the government took the difficult decision to ban certain events. Congresses, seminars, concerts, sporting events, trade and cultural fairs will not take place. Specializing in the organization of events on the French Riviera, DMC La Maison by GTS, takes stock of the government’s official restrictions.
