Cannes is the infamous party town on the French Riviera, renowned for its beautiful beaches, harbours full of expensive yachts and the annual film festival.
Why exhibit there
Cannes provides the perfect backdrop for business and creates a wonderful opportunity to meet exciting and potential partners, speakers and delegates from all around the world.
Cannes is accessible by two airports: the Nice International Airport or the smaller but excellent Cannes-Mandelieu Airport (located 6 kilometers from the center of Cannes).
Public transport will then whisk you between the main entry point to the Côte d’Azur and the center of Cannes itself.
