We have a strong sense of hospitality in Rennes! To help make getting around easier for participants, conference organisers already benefit from a transport pass. Conference visitors now have the option to benefit from special offers in more than 20 participating shops and restaurants. The scheme involves offering savings and services dedicated to business tourists during their stay in the Breton capital. Conference visitors are then eligible for certain offers during their stay by just presenting their badge.
“Brittany is a region of hospitality and this small gesture is our way of showing it. We help to make their experience a bit more relaxed and pleasant when they leave after a day of the conference,” explains Yann Guillery from the restaurant Vino E Gusto, a participant in the special offer for conference visitors.
A conference centre in the middle of the city with lots of shops just a short walk away
The Rennes Métropole conference centre is located in the historic city centre, where many shops and restaurants can be easily accessed within walking distance.
These special offers were established by Destination Rennes and its Convention Bureau in partnership with CCI d’Ille-et-Vilaine, Carré Rennais and the Union du commerce. Rennes has lots of shops and excellent restaurants that are enjoyed by conference visitors. To find them, just look in the windows for welcome stickers or check the list of participating shops and restaurants. Every location specifies the details of the special offer reserved for this clientele: a discount, a delivery option or even a little extra treat. A new version of the welcome desk for regional participants to make the Rennes experience even more enjoyable.
In addition to the offers available, business owners have also prepared to welcome conference visitors, especially those from abroad, with adapted opening hours and price stickers in different languages. This scheme will be valid for all professional events and conferences held in Rennes Métropole.
