The city of Cannes is particularly known for its Film Festival. Of course, this is not the only event on the Croisette every year. On the contrary, the infrastructures of the Palais des Festivals welcome all year round many events!
We see a lot professionals on the Croisette and sometime even more than tourists! Here is a list of events that are held every year in Cannes and most often at the Palais des Festivals. The dates are indicative of course as it varies from year to year.
From May onwards, the stars of the Film Festival meet on the Croisette as well as all the professionals who come to meet at the MIF, the International Film Market. The month of May ends with a much less well known event, the Congress of Notaries ...
The month of June sees the arrival on the Croisette of Music professionals with the MIDEM (International Music Market) followed by those of Advertising with the famous Cannes LIONS festival. Once again it is an event with a much less international dimension that closes the month of June with the rally of the Union Financière de France, a gathering of wealth managers.
Short break during the summer!
It starts again in September with the Cannes Yachting Festival ahead of the Royal Regattas of Cannes. From October, professional gatherings come back with the TAX FREE WORLD Exhibition dedicated to Duty Free professionals followed by MIPCOM, a meeting of audio visual professionals. This is followed by a variety of events such as the Finance & HR meeting, the Meetings logistics as well as the workplace meetings and the ILTM, the International Luxury Travel Market.
Short break for Christmas before leaving again in March with MIPIM, the largest meeting of real estate professionals worldwide!
