The Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes is deploying a new digital strategy. It places innovation and technology at the heart of its new arrangements and offers an event format combining the best of the real and virtual worlds with the aim of maintaining physical encounters while developing new digital solutions to prepare an offer adapted to new event formats. With the launch of a new 3D solution operated by Laval Virtual, the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès offers a concrete package for even more effective hybrid events.

After obtaining the “Sanitary Security Label” and “Ecovid Label” issued by SOCOTEC, in February 2021, the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes was awarded North America’s top health certification for public hospitality facilities: GBAC STAR™ Facility. Awarded by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council*, this certification attests the implementation of the strictest protocols in terms of cleaning, disinfection and prevention of infectious diseases within the establishment. Already issued to the largest convention centres in the United States, this certification has for the first time been awarded to a convention centre in France. The Palais once again proves its commitment to hosting international events with the utmost respect for health protocols.
The health and economic consequences of Covid-19 are having a severe impact on the tourism sector, whose total international tourism revenues, combined from January to August 2020, recorded a loss of 18.8 billion euros compared to 2019 (-46.8%), according to the Bank of France. In the face of this unprecedented crisis, the City of Cannes and its Palais des Festivals et des Congrès are introducing a new strategy entitled "Cannes Resilience". The aim is to take a collective approach to stop this negative spiral to save and revive business and leisure tourism.
The Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes is redoubling its vigilance in the face of the global health crisis and preparing to bounce back. After obtaining the "Health Security Label" and "Ecovid Label" from SOCOTEC, it is currently implementing the strictest protocols in terms of cleaning, disinfection and prevention of infectious diseases within its establishment. As the first convention centre in France to announce its commitment to obtain GBAC STAR™ accreditation from the Global Biorisk Advisory Council*, the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès wishes to increase its attractiveness and reassure its international clients.
