MONTPELLIER, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2014) - Establishing its position as a gracious host for successful International seminars and meetings in the south of France, one of the premier hotels in Montpellier is developing partnerships with local businesses and international organizations to bolster economic development of the area and help to position those who bring their meetings and events to Montpellier for success.

Partnering with Jet Tours, the Courtyard Montpellier is preparing to help organizations plan upcoming events and will introduce up to 200 guests to its impressive Montpellier conference venue at a conference event held from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, June 13.
