PARIS, March 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — With the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games just a few months away, Alliance France Tourisme, an association of major tourism companies, has unveiled an unprecedented initiative to spread the hospitality culture among all welcomers. 

This original enterprise, introduced on the Champs-Élysées, will prepare the French to be collectively ready to provide the best possible hospitality for the millions of international visitors in summer 2024.
