For its 35th edition, IFTM Top Resa wanted to highlight travel agents by launching the first "Travel Agents Cup" and picking the "best French travel agent". Registration has been closed on 13rd of May.
How does the competition work?
20 travel agents have been selected by answering an online quiz and invited in Paris to present one destination, in an original manner, in front of a jury led by Sophie Jovillard, host of “Échapées Belles” (French TV show broadcasted of France 5), and made up of figures from the tourism. After this casting, 5 finalists will be selected. Their names will be revealed on the final day of the competition.
The final day of the contest will take place during the exhibition on Friday, 27th of September from 10:00 am to 12:00 am, and will be open to visitors. Every finalist will pick a destination and will be coached by an expert of that destination for 5 minutes. The agent who will do the best presentation will win the title of best French travel agent!
