The missions of the Grand Roissy Tourist Office
Welcoming, informing, leading and promoting: an exciting goal for the Grand Roissy Tourist Office, born in January 2003.
In 2017, in a context of growth and attractiveness and following the NOTRé law, the Tourist Offices of Roissy-en-France, Ecouen and Luzarches decided to merge. So these territories combine their respective strengths and offer a complete tourist offer. This merger was effective on December 14, 2016, when the merger treaty was signed, and formalized by a Constitutive General Assembly at the end of February 2017.
Then, in 2018, the Tourist Office began its transformation with the establishment of a tourism development scheme by the firm In Extenso Deloitte. This scheme made it possible to identify several recommendations for the evolution of the Office until 2020. As the priority of giving the Tourist Office a territorial mark to affirm its singularities and pluralities. This has been done since early 2019, when the Office changes its name and presents its new destination brand. From now on, Grand Roissy Tourist Office is positioned internationally thanks to its brand: Roissy, Land of Business & Leisure.
Thus, the new Grand Roissy Tourist Office becomes a player in the tourist destination of first row in the territory of Roissy-en-France, Ecouen, Luzarches and two new municipalities: Gressy and Le Mesnil-Amelot with the support of the Community of Agglomeration Roissy Pays de France.
