Later on, in this hotel, I’d...

What department in the Novotel Atria 4* Hotel would you like to work in later? Some in Special Events, others in F&B: Three Vatel Nimes students talk about their visit to the hotel.


Marie Vincente Paquet“The hotel can host large events thanks to its sheltered patio, its 11 tailorable meeting rooms and its huge auditorium, which seats 410. 

Its integrated control room allows it to transform itself into a veritable theater or cinema. This room alone accounts for five to ten percent of the hotel’s turnover.

An exceptional playground for the hotel’s special events manager.  In any case, that’s something I’d really like to do!”


Marie-Vincente Paquet uses three words to describe this visit:

  • Instructive
  • Atypical
  • Surprising 


Thomas Medard

“Beyond large events that our hotel can host, I especially think about the client diversity that this represents: from a work council up until a manade* without forgetting fashion parades or birthday dinners, working in the Novotel Atria seems to be very enriching through all the different people you can meet.

I’m really curious and naturally open to others.  I love meeting people from different cultures, professions and different social environments. I would be thrilled to work in this hotel’s special events department.”

Thomas Medard identifies the three strengths of the hotel:

  • Housing capacity
  • Location 
  • Authenticity 


Belefkih Othmane

“The hotel tours that Vatel Campuses propose with their partner hotels, give us the opportunity to discover all sorts of hotel categories as well as the different jobs that people who work there do.

Personally, when I think about the tour, I’d see myself as the Restaurant Manager in the Food & Beverages department.

The three words Belefkih Othmane had to describe the tour:

  • Rewarding
  • Exciting
  • Entertaining


Have a look at the Vatel Lyon current events: the College Hotel visit students took.

*manade: don’t think that it was just another typical expression from the Camargue region that Thomas used to designate a group of people, taking its roots in a herd of cattle. The Novotel Atria actually did host a complete manade of several bulls and had several tons of sand delivered to imitate the atmosphere of the Nimes Arenas.
