Cannes Lions International Festival – Corporate Yacht Charter on the Cote d’Azur

26 April 2019

With summer vacational season on the French Riviera around the corner, Cannes prepares for its busy yearly high-profile international events such as the Cannes Film Festival in May, and the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, that takes place every year at the end of June, in our world-famous seaside resort.

Cannes Lions International Festival is the largest rendezvous for the advertising and creative communication industry. The large advertising players and founders of Cannes Lions, were seeking for same worldly acclaim as the Cannes Film Festival, on our spectacular Cote d’Azur resort. This is why Cannes also hosts this event in equally famous compound of the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès.

Since its first outing in 1954, the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity has been bringing the creative communications industry together every year at its one-of-a-kind event to learn, network and celebrate.

Every year, Cannes Lions explores the value of creativity in branded communications: from product and service development to the creative strategy, execution and impact. The five-day festival and awards provide the industry with access to beautiful new ideas, pioneering consumer research and emerging technologies which will help make and shape popular culture.

During these five days more than 11,000 registered members from over 90 countries exchange and share the latest achievements in brand communication, advertising and network. Traditionally, big advertising and production firms host their workshops and receptions on board Event & Corporate Yacht Charters, docked in the Old Port of Cannes, alongside the Albert-Edouard quay, known also as “Quai d’Honneur”.

The bay of Cannes features for the duration of the Cannes Lions International Festival, the most stunning luxury Superyachts and Mega-yachts available on the Cote d’Azur for Corporate Charters. Hosting a workshop, reception or meeting during corporate yacht charters & events requires a meticulous organisation to the last detail, best to entrust a professional yacht charter broker. For static charters during these events, the number of berths on Quai d’Honneur is limited and a special event formal berth application is mandatory. Also, the facilities on board of Event Charter Yachts must be appropriate for reception of multiple guests: teak must be carpeted, hospitality desk, receptions tents and furniture ordered, top-class catering put in place and sometimes entertaining such as music bands or DJs.

Yacht capacity is another key-point for a successful event yacht charter: check the number of guests on board during the event, before embarkation. Superyachts and Mega-yachts passenger capacity may vary from 25 to 150 guests, during static charters at quayside.

Particular attention should be paid to the choice of the vessel, as not all yachts are suitable for corporate yacht charters & events. Arranging of a working meeting during yacht charter also includes visual presentation, which requires additional Audio/Video installations and high-stream satellite internet aboard.

A knowledgeable yacht charter broker will attend to all the particularities of a successful corporate event.

At Allied Yachting, our experienced yacht charter brokers offer a choice of event charter yachts available throughout the Cannes Lions and, since our brokerage firm is established in Cannes, we also have access to prime moorings and berths, adjacent to the Festival.
