Fall Event Yacht Charters in Cannes – French Riviera Exhibitions

16 September 2016

After a busy summer yacht charter season on the French Riviera, Cannes hosts yearly the most important boat show in Europe: The Cannes Yachting Festival. Right after a short respite, Cannes welcomes a series of international events, fairs and trade exhibitions that also take place every year in its Palais des Festivals et des Congres – flagship of the economy and cultural events in Cannes, known worldwide. An inevitable locomotive of local industry, the “Palais” has become over years the worldwide centre of events for industry, commerce and culture, and was titled the second French business destination after Paris. Located strategically right by the Old Port of Cannes, the “Palais”, over last ten years has been extensively renovated, to become an even more harmonious, bright and environmental-friendly facility.

Charter brokers have particular interest in the event industry activities concentrating around the Palais des Festivals et des Congres because they provide us an excellent opportunity to complete the yacht charter calendar with static fall event yacht charters in Cannes during the exhibitions and events in the “Palais”.

Corporate static yacht charters offer a great opportunities for exhibitors and participants to get even more impact and acclaim for their industrial, commercial, networking and marketing solutions by boosting their visibility. Setting a business meeting with a privileged partner or potential investor on board of a luxury charter yacht docked in the Old Port of Cannes, one of the most splendid bays on the French Riviera, will create the right atmosphere instantly and will be rather prompting to a successful agreement or deal.

Static boat rental for your fall event yacht charters in Cannes has to be prepared in anticipation. To find a suitable charter yacht is the first thing; second is to file a request for the berth on the Albert-Edouard Jetty which Allied Yachting, established in Cannes, will easily achieve for you.

When choosing a charter yacht for any event, the next questions should be taken into consideration:

  • How many guests will sleep on board?
  • How many guests will you receive on board during the event?
  • If you’d like to cruise the French Riviera, how many passengers are allowed on board whilst in navigation?
  • Beverages and food you will be giving your guests?
  • Will you need some special entertainment on board of your event yacht charter, from traditional ones like live music or orchestra, a renowned DJ, night club, conference room with media and audiovisual support for business meetings or stage art and performances?

These points will certainly be restrictive and they are absolutely to respect; everything else can be fixed with a skilful crew and savvy charter broker. It is recommended to solicit a competent yacht broker, who will then help with event management: rental of necessary items for decoration of the boat, business meeting set-up, communications, display and printing of support materials and catering.

These are some of the French Riviera Exhibitions held every year in Cannes in the fall:

TFWA World Exhibition & Conference, better known as ”Tax Free” which is held in early October and opens the series of fall event yacht charters in Cannes. A global showcase for premium brands, Tax Free is a must-attend event for duty-free and travel retail professionals from all over the world.
