Cannes named an Innovative and Sustainable Destination by France Congrès

by France Congrès

Created by France Congrès et Événements and 9 pilot destinations (Biarritz, Bordeaux, Cannes, Deauville, Marseille, Metz, Nancy, Nantes and Rennes), the label aims to commit all destinations to sustainable development. The approach covers both business and leisure tourism, with the advantage of involving all local players (local authorities, emblematic sites and events, socio-professionals, visitors, local residents, etc.) in implementing the objectives. The aim is to provide visitors with responsible offers throughout their stay: hotels, catering, mobility, activities, shopping, cultural events and events.
