The glamour of the Côte d’Azur crossed the Atlantic and landed in our fair city of New York when the region’s tourism board and Atout France invited guests to get a taste of the French Riviera last Thursday at the Maritime Hotel.
Delegates from Antibes Juan-les-Pins, Cannes, and Nice shared tidbits on the tourist towns and exciting news in their respective cities during a press conference, while a montage of dreamy images flashed across a projector screen.
Afterwards, the area’s most popular hoteliers awaited with information and answered questions regarding their specific properties. Press were then invited into the next room to celebrate with wine, signature cocktails, and passed hors d’oeuvres while listening to live music.
Special guests of the evening included jazz musician Marcus Miller and the filmmakers Lauren Wolkstein and Martin Brierly.
