Around 4,000 delegates from the company are taking part in the mega-incentive – designed to reward top sales performers – and are arriving in waves of 900. The first three groups are already in the city, with the final group due to arrive on Monday.
Paris Convention Bureau’s marketing manager Corine Bernadou stated that Paris was chosen for the incentive following last year’s celebration of the 50th year of Franco-Chinese diplomatic relations.
She added that the convention bureau was liaising with the Mayor’s office in a bid to keep the delegation’s incentive itinerary on track in spite of the attacks and announcement of three days of mourning.
The incentive has been organised by Chinese agency Hua Yuan International and tour operator Kuoni.
A number of incentive groups from Europe and Asia are among the companies currently in Paris as France’s borders remain closed following last night’s terrorist attack. The convention bureau have advised any groups in need of assistance to contact them directly.
