The INFA training institute opened its 36th training center in France in October 2014 at rue Rachel Lempereur in the Euralille 2 business district. INFA joins one of its long-time clients, BCD Travel, a leading global corporate travel specialist who recently opened a Business Travel Center in Lille.
I would like to sincerely thank Lille’s agency and its team for their impressive professionalism said Emmanuelle Roisin Rogie, Director of Development and Marketing at INFA.
“Through Lille’s agency, we have quickly been able to get to know the leading institutional and business players in our industry locally. These new contacts have helped us refine our position and our approach to strategic development,” continued Emmanuelle Roisin Rogie.
INFA organizes training in the region and its partners contribute to this effort, including the French reservation center for Lucien Barrière Hotels and Casinos, BCD Travel, and Egencia, a subsidiary of Expedia Inc., also new to Lille.
The current training program focuses on tourist travel for both business and leisure and will be followed by other degree and certificate programs. They will target business, sales, teleservice, as well as the hotel and food service industries.
INFA has a modern approach to teaching: the institute focuses on practical professional training and knowledge that can be applied in real work situations. INFA innovates and improves on the classic “classroom” style of teaching.
INFA (Institut National de Formation et d’Application – national institute for training and application) originally focused on continuing education. Since 1945, the organization has widened its offerings to include training for business, the tourist, hotel and food service industries, audiovisual services and engineering to respond to the explosion of these activities in France. Training programs offered range from continuing education to graduate-level instruction. Each year, INFA provides services to 19,000 trainees.
