The perfect conference is invented in Deauville

France Congrès et Evénements has chosen the American Film Festival to host its first Innov & Tech Forum. Under the presidency of Philippe Augier, the organization brings together 50 cities and metropolises that make hosting and organizing professional (and general public) meetings a focus for economic development. The Innov & Tech forum will welcome today Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, Secretary of State to the Minister of Europe and Foreign Affairs, and will present on Wednesday, September 11 the commitments of the new ISO 20121 standard that will allow the labeling of sustainable congresses. The delegates began the forum with a visit to the Franciscan site on Monday, September 9.

"The Innov & Tech initiative is designed to take a 360° look at the changes and new opportunities available to convention cities. It particularly encourages innovation by bringing together start-ups and decision-makers. In addition to the three-day meeting in Deauville, the initiative has been ongoing since its creation in 2015. It is aimed at elected officials, directors and managers of hospitality facilities, tourist and convention offices, and companies in the industry.

Mayors and managers of convention cities have come in large numbers for this forum where they will be able to follow a program that embraces all the key parameters of the industry and its evolution in the next 5 to 10 years.
Taking stock of blockchain, the payment and value ecosystem, learning about trends and future behaviors in France and abroad, sharing experiences, analyzing the evolution of events and territory brands, imagining the perfect convention, better interacting with cities, and detecting truly useful digital tools are the main themes of the forum.

The last day, September 11, will be dedicated to responsible destinations and the ISO 20121 standard. The ISO 20121 standard was published in June 2012, just before the London Olympic Games. Specially designed for the event, it aims to promote sustainable development integrated into the event business.
