Buyers will be invited to attend a workshop in Strasbourg with over 40 selected French partners.
The programme includes a visit to a conference at the European Council.
Meeting, incentive, conference or convention planners with verifiable meetings history and those with business to book in France are encouraged to apply.
Qualified planners must plan international meetings to be considered and all applications will be reviewed by Atout France.
Atout France will cover all expenses, including flights and hotel, for selected UK participants.
