Atout France’s UK press team will be joined by a total of 52 representatives on 36 French stands – including destinations, networks and private partners – to represent France at the 11th annual IMM (International Media Marketplace) in London. This is the largest ever French delegation to participate in the event since its creation. Organised by TravMedia, IMM is the world’s leading press networking event in the tourism sector and will be held on 13 and 14 March at the QEII Centre, Westminster.
Across the two-day event, Atout France and its partners will have the opportunity to meet over 350 British and Irish journalists and influencers for one-to-one meetings in a dedicated ‘French zone’, presenting the latest news from France. In addition to holding individual meetings, partners will be able to attend workshops and industry talks, as well as productive networking lunches and a drinks reception.
Atout France and its partners look forward to renewing and strengthening their relationships with the UK and Irish media. With a total of 52 French representatives present, it will be the largest ever French delegation to participate in IMM since the event’s creation. This indicates a strong continued recovery for the UK and Irish market in nearest neighbour France, building on the rising visitor numbers witnessed in 2022 and showing an enthusiasm to welcome even more British travellers this year. This is essential for the success of France’s revival as the world’s leading tourist destination.
