After the World Congress concludes, break away from Paris with INMA colleagues on a private tour of France's famous Champagne region. Visit four wineries and vineyards and sample the best cuisine and sparkling wines that often can't be found outside of France. With an overnight stay in Reims, the tour highlight is a private Champagne pairing dinner. This special tour requires a separate registration and has a strict limit of only 30 participants – so register early.
