Assignment context and objectives

Tourism occupies a strategic position in the local economy (generating almost 26 million overnights) and in the urban organisation of the department’s territories. The Loire-Atlantique notably benefits from the appeal of the Atlantic coastline and the city of Nantes.

Aware of the strategic importance of tourism, the Loire-Atlantique department decided to draw up a new tourism development strategy, focusing notably on improving its renown and marketing efforts, on clarifying supply and on optimising its governance.
