ARGE Conference
2016 - Normandy

Social Programme

Held in the elegant seaside reosrt of Le Touquet Plage in Northern France, the 2016 annual ARGE conference offered a thought-provoking workshop and seminar series as well as the chance to enjoy and explore the beautiful French coastline. 

Situated on the Northern-French coastline in the Pas-de-Calais region, the area is synonymous with luxury, glamour and its famous Louis Quetelart style architecture.

As well as a rich heritage, Le Touquet enjoys some modern day sporting fame. The resort has been host to four stages of the Tour de France, as recently as 2014 and every year holds the Enduro moterbike race, as well as a first class reputation for horse riding. 

As well as the chance to explore Le Touquet with an expert guide, this year's social programme also included a factory visit to Deny Security, a trip around Marquanterre Park - a natural park in Somme Bay and an evening meal at a coastal restaurant.
