About us

The story began in 1993 when Catherine and Marie, both passionate about their region and event planning, created their DMC company.

After years of project management, the agency evolved and expanded its scope of expertise and practice within the meeting and events industry.

Today, Terres & Cie delivers over 150 projects each year in over thirty destinations in France and around Europe thanks to our 11 Event Designers who are all experienced project managers.

Expertise in our region is an intrinsic part of our DNA as our headquarters are located in Biarritz in the Basque Country, with offices also in Bordeaux since 2010.

An experienced team.


An experienced team with skills in event, communication, marketing, management and digital for congresses, seminaries, incentives, teambuildings in South West and everywhere else.
