Conference and Networking at IAU College, Aix, Thursday November 5th

Following October’s great evening, MAABN’s next monthly event with IAU College will take place in Aix on Thursday November 5th, with a presentation on the subject of sustainable tourism chaired by Nicolas Geoffroy.

This is the second of our series of evenings focussing on contemporary issues and combining business networking. At the MAABN, we strongly believe that discussion on important questions, be they economic, political, cultural or environmental, opens up opportunities for better contacts and better business.

IMG_0854 (Small)The presentation on November 5th asks the question “Is tourism harmful?“. “Not necessarily” is the reply from Nicolas Geoffroy, tourism expert at the Marseille-Provence CCI and Alice Jude of the Cité Européenne de la Culture et du Tourisme Durable who, assisted by a guest speaker, will be explaining how local, sustainable tourism is striving to make tourism more compatible with environmental, cultural and economic needs.

The presentation will be followed by a networking session and apéro.

We ask all our members to spread the word among their friends and contacts who may be interested in this subject or in trying out one of our networking events for the first time. As the only English-speaking business network organizing regular events in the region, we aim to make sure you get the most out of the networking opportunities we provide. We will also follow up on any connections we make on your behalf after the event by email.

This is an important new partnership for the MAABN with an institution that has become a benchmark in its field since its inception in 1957. With a new business school recently inaugurated, IAU College (formerly the Institute for American Universities) now offers a comprehensive range of  study programs in the arts, literature, humanities, international business relations etc that include homestays, internships and excursions.

This will also be an opportunity to meet some of the American and overseas students currently studying at IAU College and perhaps destined to be tomorrow’s captains of industry. The IAU is certainly a gold mine for any local businesses looking for top-flight native English-speaking interns.

The MAABN is a non-profit organisation that promotes and supports Franco-American and Franco-British business and cultural relations.
