During attendees' visit to Le Cordon Bleu Paris, they were welcomed by Le Cordon Bleu International Chairman André Cointreau—a member of the Conseil d'Honneur—and Charles Cointreau. The general meeting, held at the Shangri-La Hotel, was chaired by International President Yam Atallah, with assistance from International Vice-President Marie Jones, the Conseil d'Administration, and Secretary-General Philippe Desgeorges.
