New Faces, New Business IFTM Top Resa is more than ever a major networking event in travel & tourism industries Entering Day 3 of France’s increasingly international travel & tourism trade event, it becomes more apparent than ever that IFTM Top Resa has become one of the key global networking events of the year. With buyers flocking to the show from all walks of the industry, existing contacts are nurtured and new contacts are gathered. Fresh ideas and concepts abound, and inventive ways to increase business efficiency are discussed. For each one, the reasons for attending the show differ, but all agree on the diversity and richness of the offerings available and the ideas to be had. One such example is Lukrecya Payen, Senior Global Travel Buyer - Global Purchasing - Global Supply Chain for Schneider Electric (pictured left) who is here “to find innovation: technology & big data”. # 10 REGIONAL SPOTLIGHT: AMERICAS & CARIBBEAN # 11 WHERE TO GO IN PARIS JEAN-MARC FLAMBERT Vice-President, Sales & Marketing, UK & Europe, Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority Our regional strength comes from the fact that Antigua is really a hub for the Caribbean.
