The Rouen Normandy Tourism & Convention Office, covering the leading urban agglomeration in France, is the third French region for the organization of events behind the Ile de France and the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region.
The regional capital, Rouen, offers a dynamic socio-economic environment enriched by its status as the headquarters of reputable companies, the presence of a leading university and research hub, and the emergence of new technological fields such as high-tech industry, fine chemicals and aerospace.
Rouen and its Seine Valley, which combines scenery and connectivity, is ideally located within 300 kilometres of three European capitals (Paris, London and Brussels) and is easily accessible.
The leading asset of the Rouen and the Seine Valley as a destination is its capacity to attract and welcome tourism. The land of Impressionism, and of many kinds of events, more than 3 million tourists a year tread the cobbles of Rouen, rich in remarkable architectural heritage, explore the 100km stretch of the Seine River and 500km of hiking trails, and enjoy the 21,000 hectares of forest.
A diverse range of hotels is spread over the entire region amid the greenery and architecture. In the city centre, near the access routes or on the outskirts, the presence of international hotel groups (Accor, Best Western, Marriott, Louvre Hotels, and more) enhances the quality of welcome for tourists.

Business tourism professionals and the Conventions Office have implemented a Quality and Commitments Charter, a quality mark for the region, to ensure the quality of services and the satisfaction of the organizers.
