The 40th edition of Salon IFTM Top Resa of Paris – France was held at Pte de Versailles .

In a message to participants of this year’s event, Frédéric Lorin, Head of the Tourism Division of IFTM Top Resa said:

“As you probably know by now, 2018 marks the 40th edition of IFTM Top Resa, the show which, thanks to you and your loyalty, is still the must-attend event for tourism professionals.”

So it’s an anniversary that deserves to be celebrated in style! Our mission and goal at IFTM Top Resa is to continue to be the leading showcase for the entire tourism industry. Your show has become a true multi-sector event for both the international and French markets, with Leisure, Business, MICE and Group tourism now all together under one roof. We introduced many innovations in 2017 and will be doing the same for our 40th anniversary edition.

There will be new themed villages, new events, a magical anniversary gala evening and Map Pro, which will become “Destination France” for 4 days in a clearly designated area based on the Villages model. “Destination France” is already a major part of IFTM Top Resa and will now have the visibility to match. Our aim is to make the customer experience – your experience – more varied and comprehensive than ever. Remember, IFTM Top Resa is THE event for tourism professionals and so and I am very much looking forward to seeing you from 25 to 28 September 2018 at Porte de Versailles in a totally refurbished Hall 7″ .

This fair remains the biggest in France and on Tuesday 25 September 2018 the Paris based Mauritian Professional Photographer Joey Niclès Modeste took photos of the Indian Ocean Stands which he circulated to the world as he does every year.
