The international Maisons de la Région Occitanie / Pyrénées-Méditerranée

Sponsored by Sud de France Développement, these facilities relay to the field all the actions of its Agro-food, Tourism, Wine and Multisectoral Departments through a varied programme of promotional activities: trade fairs, prospection missions, training, webinars, tastings, networking events, eductours, press tours, partnerships with distribution networks, recruitment of buyers for business conventions…

The strength of the experts of the Maisons resides in their knowledge of the regional economic fabric and their in-depth understanding and analysis of local markets. Over the years, they have been able to raise the awareness and maintain the interest of foreign buyers and prescribers through their daily influence on their wide-ranging personal networks. This proximity enables them to detect and seize business opportunities over the whole of their territory and even beyond their borders, in order to generate more business for the region.

The international Maisons de la Région are a mainstay of support for nearly 1000 regional businesses that take advantage of these services every year. They are a real bridging service, advising and assisting businesses in their rollout initiatives on foreign markets in order to build their lasting market presence.

The very good targeted results achieved for regional exports to foreign markets where our international Maisons de la Région are located prove their relevance and effectiveness and confirm the many expressions of satisfaction on our services from regional businesses and foreign professionals. By concentrating their cross-cutting and collective actions around the Sud de France brand name and by developing more personalised relationships with professionals, our international Maisons de la Région have had a decisive impact.
