The Office du Tourisme et des Congrès de Paris (Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau) was created in 1971, as a joint initiative between the City of Paris and the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry. It has three main roles: to welcome and inform visitors and to promote Paris as a destination both within France and internationally. The Bureau actively promotes Paris in terms of its tourism, leisure and business offer to operators and opinion-leading media.
Atout France is the only government-run tourism operator responsible for developing this sector through three main levers: ensuring that France's tourism offer is consistent with international demand, helping to promote and extend the influence of the France Brand and providing customised support to each of its partners.
