The fifth most populous city in France, it’s easy to see why so many people are drawn to this stunning spot. With its temperate climate and ideal location, Nice is more than just a holiday destination however.
Why exhibit there?
Nice has a thriving economy that keeps to be going from strength to strength. The backbone of the city’s economy lies predominantly in the tourism sector or the service industry and that is no surprise, given the city’s location. However, construction and technology are also significant and are helping to build the area’s reputation as a hub for technology.
Once you arrive at Nice Airport, you can get downtown by catching the The Nice Airport Express Bus. It costs 6€ and you can either buy your ticket from the bus desk at the airport or from the driver as you board, and you can catch the bus from either terminal.

Key tourist hotspots
Nice is the place to sit back and enjoy life, to take in the beauty of the gardens and the sea, and to soak up the incredible Mediterranean energy. If you want to explore, check out:
- The picturesque Old Town of Nice (Vieille Ville), with its maze of narrow alleyways and cobblestone streets, has a lively ambience reminiscent of Italy.
- The most recognisable street in Nice, the Promenade des Anglais, is a wonderful pedestrian area that follows the curve of the Baie des Anges beaches.
- Le Vingt4. Try the slice of roasted cod with Portuguese-style tomato salsa, duck aiguillette with grape and verjuice sauce or the homemade tofu hamburger.
- La Roustide. Renowned for its variety of truffle-based dishes. Try the baked potatoes covered with truffles, or sea bream tartare with wasabi and truffles, or puy lentils with whipped creamed truffles.
- Local currency is the Euro.
- Language is French.
- Visas are required by some nationals, not all, best to check their list to see.
- Plug sockets are the European two prong style.
- Cultural sensitivities are few and far between, but when conducting business, it is always worth noting:
- In France it is vital to ensure that you make appointments for both business and social occasions. It is not acceptable in France to ‘drop in’.
- Punctuality is treated quite casually.
- Gift-giving among business associates is not common practice in France.
