The global village of Cannes is a mythical, authentic destination perfectly adapted to organizing international fairs and events. There are more than 50 major professional events every year and over 120 shows.
The second largest congress destination in France after Paris, Cannes owes its success to its professionalism and the synergy of all the destination’s players who come together around the city and SEMEC, (Société d’Economie Mixte pour les Evènements Cannois) - which manages tourism in the broadest sense and the Palais des Festivals in particular.
Cannes is an unrivalled venue for networking and doing business. Cannes’ customers get it right with a number of major events returning year after year -the 70th Film Festival, Cannes Lions (64th edition), TFWA (70 years of duty free).
With the Palais des Festivals situated right in the centre of the city where everything can be reached on foot in less than 10 minutes, and a pool of 8000 hotel rooms and more than 500 restaurants, Cannes welcomes its visitors in a magical environment.
Security is also a central concern for the city and the Palais, having for many years focused their actions on securing the area and venues open to the public.
Today, all the partners come together under the umbrella of the Cannes Convention Bureau.
The Cannes Convention Bureau team, led by the SEMEC Tourism Department, is at the service of and listens to the organizers of exhibitions, congresses, and events. It provides personalized responses to their expectations and, from the first contact to the final clap, supports them in every aspect of the organization of their event.
Cannes’ know-how has an international reputation that is recognized by MICE professionals. This know-how, which makes it possible to conquer new markets, has ensured the loyalty, year after year, of the events which promote the excellence of Cannes worldwide.
