Venue: Paris, France
CoDIT’19 will be held April 23-26, 2019 at Paris, France.
France, in Western Europe, encompasses medieval cities, alpine villages and Mediterranean beaches.
France has managed to retain its crown as the most visited country in the world thanks to the 89 million visitors that came to see its sights in 2017. That's because of six main attributes.
Paris, France’s capital, is a major European city and a global center for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture. Its picturesque 19th-century cityscape is crisscrossed by wide boulevards and the River Seine. Beyond such landmarks as the Eiffel Tower and the 12th-century, Gothic Notre-Dame cathedral, Louvre, the city is known for its cafe culture, and designer boutiques along the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The City of Light is the apex of architectural beauty, artistic expression, and culinary delight.
The city remains year after year the most visited one in the world ahead of London and New York City. The top reason to come are sightseeing and shopping. The city is the largest Airbnb market in the world. Top sights: Notre Dame (12 million visitors in 2017), Disneyland Paris (11), Sacre Coeur (10), Versailles Palace (7.7), the Louvre Museum (6.9), the Eiffel Tower (5.9), Centre Pompidou (3.33), Musee d'Orsay (3). In the Paris region, the largest numbers of foreign tourists came in order from Britain, the United States, Germany, Italy, China and Canada.
Paris is a city of vast, noble perspectives and intimate, ramshackle streets, of formal espaces vertes (green open spaces) and of quiet squares. This combination of the pompous and the private is one of the secrets of its perennial pull.
