The different departments

of the Metropolitan tourist office and convention bureau of Marseille

The Tourist Office currently employs 45 people. All of them are spread over the 3 levels of the building which is located in the heart of Marseille, on the Canebière.

Our different missions

All its actions are carried out in partnership with the institutional tourism bodies (Atout France, the State Secretariat for Tourism, etc.) and local tourism professionals (Bouches-du-Rhône Tourisme, the Regional Tourism Committee, the CCIMP, Marseille Provence Airport, etc.) to ensure better synergy.

The Office’s staff is divided up as follows

-Reception: 17 people

-Guided Tours Unit: 4 people
-Convention Bureau: 5 people
-Press, Communication and Publishing Division: 5 people

Reception is a priority: tourists are welcomed every day of the year (except for December 25th and January 1st) by some twenty multilingual travel advisors.

The 2nd priority is the international and national promotion of Marseille as a destination. This is achieved through the work of two departments:

  • Promotion of business tourism and congresses ‘Convention bureau’
  • Marketing and sales:
    Overall, these two departments participate each year in several international trade fairs for professionals and the general public.
    The promotion action is reinforced by a close link with the local, national and international media, carried out by the Press Department.

Attached to the Marketing and Sales Department:
The Products department is responsible for creating urban cultural products (guided tours, etc.), nautical products (diving, sea outings, etc.) and gastronomic products (bouillabaisse courses, introduction to oenology, etc.).

The Guided Tours Department offers tours of Marseille, the department and the region in 8 languages.
