2018 IFTM Top Resa

Event Type: Marketplace

Established in 1978 and targeted specifically at the leisure industry, the show was first known as “Top Resa” and took place in Deauville.

In 2008, changing tack, the show added “IFTM” to its name to “IFTM Top Resa” and moved to Paris, where it became a multi-sector show covering all types of travel: leisure, business, MICE and groups.

In 2018 the show will celebrate its 40th anniversary. To mark the occasion, it’s getting a makeover: new logo, new corporate identity and new corporate colours. For its 40th birthday, IFTM Top Resa is reinventing itself!
