Nicolas Lecœur / François Gailliard / Jérôme Linÿer

François GAILLIARD, passionate about travel, sociology, and culture, founded LAFAYETTE TRAVEL in 1986. This new Parisian DMC (Destination Management Company) quickly gained success due to the quality of its programs for the American market and the understanding of its culture. Building on this success, François established LAFAYETTE MONACO and LAFAYETTE FRENCH RIVIERA to satisfy the numerous requests from clients who had appreciated his expertise in Paris.

In just a few years, LAFAYETTE TRAVEL became the reference in the French and Monegasque markets, with over 40 dedicated collaborators spread across Paris, Bordeaux, Cannes, and Monaco.

In 2023, François decided to pass on his business to two friends and experienced MICE professionals in Paris, Jérôme LINYER and Nicolas LECOEUR. François remains associated and supports the transition.

Markets evolve, expectations change, and so did LAFAYETTE TRAVEL, changing its corporate identity and name into LAFAYETTE DMC, under its new leadership, with a focus on maintaining privileged relationships and creating inovating offers to install a fresh momentum.


We are proud to take over from François GAILLIARD and bring our experience and energy to the development of LAFAYETTE DMC.

Our expertise in events and functions will bring LAFAYETTE DMC‘s customers creativity and boldness for a different vision of France and Monaco. Our culture of high standards and attention to detail, our sense of service and our expertise will guarantee quality and success.
