For the moment, the French government prohibits gatherings of more than 5.000 people throughout the country. With this restriction, many events initially scheduled for this summer have been postponed at best and cancelled at worst. The events sector is in total turmoil and DMC agencies are also impacted. However, this health crisis is also marked by innovation. Some organizers are indeed redoubling their imagination to satisfy the expectations of the public or their clients. The show must go on!
While the epidemic is affecting fewer and fewer people in France, the government has announced a gradual plan to bring the French lockdown to an end. This is obviously accompanied by important rules to be respected, particularly when it comes to local tourism. To find out all the details, you can contact a DMC agency which will inform you on a case-by-case basis. Here are some of these rules, among the most important.
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.
La Maison by GTS is a DMC specialized in accompanying companies on their trips to the French Riviera. In view of the precautions to be taken concerning the epidemic our activity is temporarily stopped. In addition, professional events (congresses, trade fairs, symposiums) are cancelled, borders are closed, and the number of flights has been drastically reduced.
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.
Exceptionally, due to safety measures related to the Coronavirus, MIPIM 2020 has been postponed to June. The event was originally set to take place from March 10 to 13.
