This year’s edition was the perfect occasion to present Euro 2016 which will take place in French cities next summer and its mascot Super Victor. The 2015 road show has been backed by encouraging statistics: 4,00,000 Indian visitor arrivals to France for 2014, registering an 18% increase over 2013 arrivals. We are optimistic that this year’s showcase will help us in our endeavour of further augmenting Indian arrivals to France in the coming months and enhancing France’s positioning as a premier outbound destination’’.
