EDITORIAL Simon King Associate Editor Sports tourism: a winning wager France is about to enter a new period in which major sports events (i.e. Olympiad in 2024) will play a key role in the decision-making process of those travelling to this country. To this end, the decision by the government to appoint a special team to hone France’s readiness for a new tourism influx, and to benefit from the promotion of major sports events on a global scale, means this will be done in such a way as to truly optimise all opportunities available. The presence at IFTM Top Resa of members of this mission, such as Pascale Roque (see pages 12-13) sets this show at the very heart of the issue and underlines the key role being played by this gathering of top minds in pushing the industry in the right direction. Tourisme sportif : un pari gagnant La France est sur le point d'entrer dans une nouvelle période où les grands événements sportifs (comme les Jeux Olympiques en 2024) joueront un rôle clé dans le processus de prise de décision de ceux qui voyagent dans le pays.

La présence à IFTM Top Resa de membres de cette mission, comme Pascale Roque (voir pages 12- 13), place le salon au cœur de la problématique et souligne le rôle clé joué par ce rassemblement des plus grands esprits afin de conduire l’industrie dans la bonne direction.
