François Gailliard co-founded Lafayette Travel in 1986 with an esteemed, now defunct, colleague from the Travel, Tourism & Hospitality Industry.He started Lafayette Travel with a few shareholders, over time expanding from a single office in Paris to a company with over 35 permanent staff and branch offices in Monaco, Cannes, Strasbourg and Marseille. T
his geographical expansion became a high priority to counter the worldwide diplomatic and economic turmoil starting in 2001 and exacerbated by the 2008 financial crisis in the US. This expansion tactic has proven to be more than sound.Lafayette is the French specialist for Conventions, Meetings, Congresses and Incentive programs in France and Monaco.
