Scottsdale– Eric Otto, President and CEO of Connect Worldwide, and other participants were exclusively invited by Accor Hotels to race around the Champs-Élysées three times, in front of thousands of spectators, just before the final stage of the Tour de France. Top management of Accor attended the event, including the CEO, Executive VP of Marketing, and Senior VP of Sales and Marketing. The purpose of the event was to thank key partners of Accor Hotels for their support. Other invitees included Carlson Wagonlit, American Express, Tourico, and clients from nine countries!
Accor Hotels is a sponsor of the Tour de France along with Europcar. The Tour de France is a three-week cycling event held for the past 99 years where professional cyclists from all over the world compete for the yellow winner’s jersey. What an honor it was for Eric to be part of this astounding event.
