A select group of Australian travel trade representatives were treated to lunch at the residence of the French general consul in Sydney last week to Atout France’s celebrations of the upcoming 2024 Olympic and Paralympic games in Paris.
The French Consulate hosted a luncheon to celebrate France’s highly anticipated games in 2024, bringing together an esteemed group of guests from trade tourism, media, destinations, and sporting enthusiasts. The afternoon commenced with a warm welcome from Mr. Martin Juillard, Consul-General of France in Sydney who expressed his excitement for the upcoming events in Paris and throughout France.
Frederic Mazenq, from Atout France, then delivered a presentation highlighting the exciting preparations for
the games in Paris while showcasing the venues, and iconic landmarks of the country that will be at the forefront of the event.
