Business travel

Business travel is a profitable market representing 180M€. Normandy is ideally located close to Paris and offers quality facilities. Conference facilities are concentrated in 6 main towns:
- Deauville & Caen in Calvados
- Cherbourg & Granville in Manche
- Alençon & Bagnoles-de-l’Orne in Orne

Business travel is a healthy and profitable market. This branch of the tourist market generates the highest turnover per stay and per client, despite the relative stagnation of global expenditure per stay. Nevertheless, it is a highly competitive and rapidly evolving market (shorter business events, reduced budgets, activity concentration...)
