Elyse, I don't know how to respond directly to your post but just to say I've had good luck with the Regional tourism boards - they tend to have marketing staff as well as comms staff - I don't know about Bordeaux but I have to say several regions have been very responsive. Good luck!

Introducing Le Pisadou, a chestnut-based cake from the Ardeche, so yummy you cannot have just one slice. I have it on good authority: mine... Read more about it on my blog at Women on the Road

Tried them again...they were very rude. The assistant to the main person was very nice, and then after I put in all the efforts, I got a mosquito swat of a rejection saying they are too busy.  I think there are certain tourism boards that only work with outlets they feel are top tier.  They pawned me off to a couple of PR firms, so I will try my luck with them.

Tourism boards who only help writers at a certain tier should post a disclaimer on their web site saying they only work with top market newspapers and newsstand books.

Sounds pretty awful, Elyse -- the time you put in, the disappointment, the embarrassment. Still, I'd contact them again, if only because you have nothing to lose. With your antennae up this time, you'll know if you're going to get assistance or not.

Ed,

They were not very nice to me a few years ago.  They invited me on a FAM, had me get letters of assignment and two hours later when I provided them, the THREE trips were filled up, so I wasted my time and looked foolish and then had to explain to my editors that i was not really invited.

Elyse, have you approached the folks at the French Tourism office here in NYC?

Bonjour, tout le monde!

Je voudrais savoir s'il y a des membres qui travaillent avec un hotel ou faissent les relations publiques avec un agence avec plusieurs clients qui sont hotels et restaurants?

Here's the scoop en Anglais.

I will be traveling to Bordeaux from the 3-8 of September for Intermezzo and a couple of my beverage industry trades.  I would like to look into extending my stay a few days beyond the press trip in Paris as I think I can get some interesting material.  While I may be hosted by the Mandarin Oriental a couple of days after Bordeaux (9/8 and 9/9, I would like to find out if there are other hotels who can extend complimentary rooms on assignment (I can provide the letters of assignment).  If it turns out to be a short stay, and hotels can't offer comped rooms, I am still interested in reviewing a couple of hotel or independent restaurants with very inventive sommeliers and interesting wine from the Bordeaux region, so it will tie in with the main features I am doing that focus on Bordeaux's wine and influences on other regions of France.

Let me know your thoughts.  If I secure extra days in Paris, I will inform the people booking flights to France from L.A.

All the best,

Elyse
