Associate membership
"The World of Islands"


 "The World of Islands" office would be an intermediary between the consumer and you. Consumers will be able to get all the information about their chosen destination, while at the same time discovering new destinations they might not have considered before. In addition, by bringing together all the useful information in one single location (those provided by you and those offered by the local tourist industry), the office will become a crucial address for consumers preparing island vacations, all the more so since these services are and will remain free for consumers.

At the same time, all islands will benefit from the increased interest in their countries due to easier access to information.

With this office, the smaller islands will have a presence in the European market, while the larger islands will see their presence grow and develop at less cost.

Finally, this project also concerns those islands that already have their own tourist offices in France or other European countries. Statistics prove, in fact, that a large percentage of travelers are undecided as to their choice of destination. The "World of Islands" Office will allow you to make contact with this undecided clientele, a clientele who might not otherwise have thought to contact your island's individual bureau in Europe.



"The World of Islands" office : the nuts and bolts

"The World of Islands" is a marketing, advertising and communications network in France and in Europe, which works under two forms : real and virtual. 

The Islands Promotion Office, to be called "THE WORLD OF ISLANDS", or MDI International, exist on the internet. This will enable us to reach a large number of consumers in both France and abroad, particularly in Europe. This website is  accessible in 3 languages : French, English and German.

From the word go, consumers and tourism professionals will be able to contact us by e-mail, telephone, fax and mail.

The office will function in the same way as a classic tourist office. It will provide consumers and European professionals with appropriate information. 

This office is in Strasbourg, the capital of the European Union. The Pan-European orientation of this city makes it the perfect location in which to install an office of this type to promote the islands both in France and Europe. In addition, the city's central location, close to Germany, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Belgium, makes it convenient to most of the residents of the European Union.
