Le Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, as a company with a mission, has as its raison d’être to welcome the world in a sustainable way, by creating links and strengthening human and technological relations in Cannes. This ambition is realized by welcoming all publics through the organization of cultural and professional events, fostering encounters and exchanges across differences.

When technology brings the world together

The health crisis has shaken things up. In particular, it has given rise to new ways of approaching trade shows.

Organizers now want to have the choice of setting up hybrid (both face-to-face and remote) or 100% digital events. To meet this demand, le Palais des Festivals et des Congrès has created the Hi5 Studio, which is revolutionizing the format of trade shows and festivals.

Equipped with a 120 m² stage that can accommodate 350 people seated in real cinema seats, this equipment enables a wider audience by professionalizing online broadcasting. It’s also a way of opening up events to other audiences and thus… connecting the world even more.

Here it is... Here it is

Stay connected! To optimize Hi5 Studio, le Palais suggests that organizers use Voilà, a live event platform, dedicated to hybrid and digital events.

By making live digital an experience in its own right, it offers, for example, “an end-to-end solution not only for conferences, seminars, general meetings but also for product launches and demonstrations” promise its designers.

A version of this technological solution has been specially adapted and set up at le Palais des Festivals et des Congrès.

Wifi 6 everywhere!

Le Palais des Festivals et des Congrès de Cannes benefits from a wifi network dedicated to its public events. This solution can accommodate thousands of users from all types of terminals, guaranteeing the security of individual authentication on the captive portal and data confidentiality (RGPD certified, only the organizer holds the personal information of its customers).

We offer the wireless internet network wifi 6. It corresponds to the latest standard certified by Wifi-Alliance, the consortium in charge of setting the technical standards for wifi technology.

This connexion is accessible to organizers and delegates alike. It enables numerous devices to be connected to the same network with the latest technical performance of the moment.

A few figures:

  • + 250 access points each capable of connecting up to 500 devices
  • 4 9800-40 controllers capable of connecting a total of 128,000 devices
  • Network transfer capacity in excess of 200 Gb/s
  • Our captive portal is capable of managing all connected clients


Find yourself on social networks

Connect. Stay in touch. Exchanging on a daily basis. Le Palais des Festivals et des Congrès is present on all social networks to continuously inform its tens of thousands of subscribers.

This tenuous link with its community maintains the sense of identity and belonging to a territory that is the stuff of dreams the world over. The connection between everyone is thus made possible despite, at times, geographical distance.

The idea is to getas close as possible to all generations and all types of public, whether professionals, fans of Cannes as a destination or occasional visitors. It takes all kinds to make a world: and that’s certainly the case at the Village Mondial Cannes, where difference is strength.

Events that unite us

Whether real estate professionals at MIPIM or the general public, fans of the small screen at Canneseries, everyone finds themselves at the same table. Hosting at least 140 events a year, le Palais des Festivals et des Congrès regularly federates communities around a common interest or shared passion. Ideal for exchanging, evolving, confronting ideas, working and having fun in a dream setting!

Le Palais is a veritable gas pedal of exchanges and connections. That’s why it also organizes its own events like le Bal des Fous, the Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique, the Festival de la Danse or the Festival International des Jeux. A lot of people take part. No doubt this, too, is a highly effective way of connecting more and more people again and again with a universal thread: culture in all its forms and joie de vivre.
