PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MagicEvent.com is offering exhibitors at and visitors to the Paris Air Show a new way to travel to Paris by using sharing economy resources. Through the partnership with the MagicEvent.com website, visitors can stay in a studio or an apartment that has been carefully selected to meet their expectations.
An exceptional event such as the Salon International de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace (Paris Air Show) will welcome 2,200 exhibiting companies from 45 countries, 140,000 professional visitors, and 175,000 visitors from the general public to Paris between June 15 and 21, 2015. This will create an enormous strain on accommodation located around the Le Bourget Exhibition Center.
"The exhibition days at Le Bourget are particularly intense for exhibitors and visitors," explains Nicolas Tran, Marketing Director. "Being able to rent an apartment close to the center or close to public transport links when you are staying for several days is a real advantage. Collaborative consumption is an interesting approach for an event like ours. This year, there have been lots of discussions about environmental issues that would allow us to limit our impact."
The Paris Air Show therefore offers its exhibitors and visitors dedicated access to accommodation provided by MagicEvent.com that has been selected for the event, with the option of being able to reserve directly online. Stars are awarded to each accommodation listing according to objective criteria concerning comfort and facilities, similar to standards used in hotels. The time it takes for walkers, drivers or public transport users to get to the exhibition center is stated for each particular accommodation listing.
"This type of accommodation is more comfortable and enables users to save up to 50%, not including savings on food or transportation," adds Valéry Linÿer, CEO of MagicEvent.com."We have also just launched MagicEvent Services, a mobile application which gives visitors access to concierge services as well as practical and tourist information to make their trip to Paris easier."
Launched in 2014, MagicEvent.com is the top website for collaborative consumption that is exclusively dedicated to business tourism. It provides accommodation – either in city centers or in the vicinity of conference/exhibition centers – in 40 cities across Europe.
