Cannes Convention Bureau : a sales team at your service and ready to listen to you.
SEMEC, the management company of the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes.
SEMEC plays, with success guaranteed, the role of captain on board the flagship of the Cannes economy: le Palais des Festivals et des Congrès.
The success of this enterprise in the long term cannot be summarised, nevertheless, as the management, rigorous and audacious as it may be, of a building with famous steps, which hosts some of the most widely covered events in the world.
The uniqueness of the SEMEC, a private company whose capital (€2,400,000) is distributed between the public sector, that is to say the City of Cannes, for 80%, and the private sector, for 20 %, is that it combines in the same unit three different yet complementary development axes: the management of the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès effectively taken on as of 2001; the concerted tourist promotion of the city; the organisation of public cultural events. It also provides the service of advice to all local partners.
This unity of decision making and action on the basis of a single tool makes it possible to avoid wasted energy. SEMEC and partners in the hotel sector combine their strength on marketing boards, to boos the destination.
Rapid implementation, flexible management, the launching of promotions developed on the basis of market research, the organisation of targeted events, transparency in all areas are determinant assets in an extremely competitive sector.
Awarded a public service delegation renewable in 2021, the SEMEC is calmly preparing for the future, with constantly renewed determined and enthusiasm.
