CONVENTIONS

We organized our first Congress over 50 years ago!

Our exceptional longevity in that competitive sector takes root in our deep and sound knowledge and understanding of both the inside workings of congresses and conferences and the special legislation which applies to some business activities.
We love our work: our aim is to always assist our clients and partners in the step by step setting up of their convention, including preparation, progress and finalization. Constantly endeavoring excellence, we guarantee flexibility, reactivity and availability to cater for the most demanding clients and highest requirements of quality and efficiency.

 
 

Mathez is a family business and its efficiency is partly based on an organization kept simple: approval process and resulting action are undertaken in a timely manner : it should always be a short time from listening attentively to the customer’s needs and wishes to the formulation, implementation of a plan to attain them and assist in its realization.

Organizing conventions and conferences implies facing challenges of all kinds (coordination of speakers, availability/adequacy of staff and equipment required, logistics etc.) There are so many factors to consider and calling for specific solutions that our customers are due to need the help of a local expert. We constantly strive to bring them an added value in the services we offer. Going beyond our technical skills and concern for excellency and security to provide our clients with, we are strongly committed to keeping a number of values in our relations with clients, collaborators and partners: mutual trust, loyalty, respect, honesty and ethics, transparency and flexibility.
Last but not least, carefully listening to you and counseling you are core aspects of our trade to anticipate your needs….We stand by your side at all times throughout your project.

CRUISE DEPARTMENT

Expertise and know-how perfected over 80 years of experience

Our Cruise department, which offers both land arrangements (tour operator, incoming services) and maritime logistics (port agent) activities, is one of our major features.
We were one of the very first agencies in France to include this activity in our offer; We believe we still are the one who has the most permanent full-time staff dedicated to it.

Our shore excursions are conceived and engineered in our various local offices giving the greatest care to closely cater to your guests’ specific demographics and schedule constraints (dates of call, time in port taking into account eventual tendering operations). For the last 30 years our cruise teams have endeavored to enhance their creativity and to constantly seek out new products.

 
 

...

Our collaborators are all recruited locally for their in-depth knowledge of the regions in which we are operating. This ensures their having all the useful local contacts (guides and suppliers, port authorities, city council…) and their good reactivity to face any unforeseen event.
These local teams have for the most part been working with us for over 15 years and master the overall logistics involved both at the conception stage and on the management and control of operations on the field.

Our teams are always totally involved and guarantee a permanent follow-up; they are physically present and available on the pier to supervise the overall organization themselves and make sure all goes well until the end. They are available 7 days a week during the high season and are prepared to handle all situations including the most difficult; they will always find the appropriate solutions for the cruise passengers’ best convenience (last minute change of itinerary including change of call port or modification of times in port in case of bad weather, heavy traffic). Keeping always posted of all local current happenings, we will inform you of any situation which may impact the normal sequence of your calls and planned itineraries, or which may offer a new opportunity to include further services. We also regularly carry out inspections on our service providers’ installations and equipment to guarantee optimum quality for your excursions.

Last but not least, we constantly try to invest in new technology so as to have the most modern tools available for our clients (headsets, digital tablets…)

With branches in Paris, Marseille, Cannes, Nice and Monaco, we cover all the main continental French ports on the Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts.
