On October 28th, EDHEC BBA 4th year (Tourism, Hospitality and Event Management) discovered luxury travel from the perspective of a hotel (at Pullman Bercy) and that of the travel agent (at Club Med Champs Elysées).
Club Med opened in September 2015 a new concept of agency in an appartment, located on the second floor of a Hausmann building on the very touristic Avenue Champs Elysées. Club Med elevates “literally speaking” its image, welcoming upscale clients in this elegant apartment. The atmosphere is friendly and intimate, far away from traditional travel agencies on the street (see featured picture). Guests “pre-experience” their vacations as soon as they enter in the salon, through activation of all senses, from the discreet smell of monoi oïl to the display of artistic videos on giant screens. Club Med proposes also a 3D immersion into four of their villages.
At Pullman Bercy, Mathide Rullman, Talent Manager, had organized a tour that ended with open discussions with the guest experience manager and the event & communication manager, among others. The Pullman Bercy proposes an hyper-connected and welcoming playground to global travellers, business and family alike (see picture below in the lobby)
Thank you Loïck Menvielle, Director EDHEC BBA Horizon Tourism and EM, and Horizon Digital for organizing this incredible business trip for students.
