On travaille sur du concret, on forme nos étudiants à la réalité de cette industrie… SERENA DONATO Contracts Manager – France, Secret Escapes A Feast for the Eyes… and Senses IFTM Top Resa again wows tourism professionals with innovative and breathtaking travel offerings Roger Kacou Minister of Tourism, Republic of Côte d’Ivoire See our exclusive interview page 7 It’s the last day of the show, but for most of us, we just can’t get enough of the incredible images that don’t cease to keep us dreaming. Bright colours, heady scents, azure seas, intriguing architecture, smiling faces, soaring melodies and swirling dancing figures succeed one another stand after stand to create an overwhelming, aweinspiring, giddy kaleidoscope that is today’s vision of the world at IFTM Top Resa. It’s a veritable plethora of ideas and inspiration for tourism professionals who then have the “mission” of evangelising these delectable destinations, tempting the traveller with ideas they may never have had if left to their own devices. A number of destinations are also touting strong new initiatives in the field of tourism. One notable example is the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire - back as a destination on the world stage as the Ivorian government makes resources available to develop infrastructure and support international marketing efforts (see our exclusive interview, page 7). We hope your last day at the show will be fruitful and informative, and look forward to seeing you again next year! The “foodie” holidays are definitely the ones that work best when packaged. # 11 WHERE TO GO IN PARIS ALEXANDRE DEBANNE French TV presenter Above all, what I love in Paris is the Seine. It’s the most beautiful avenue in the city! REGIONAL SPOTLIGHT AFRICA & MIDDLE EAST International tourist arrivals in the Middle East are estimated by the UNWTO to have declined by 7% January through April 2016, while in Africa, arrivals were up 7% in the first part of the year. Within the “big picture” there are of course a lot of sub-trends, as sub-Saharan African has, for example, strongly rebounded, while North Africa recorded another decline. Read about this and other trends in our special feature, from page 9. © Rwanda Tourism
