It's almost time to roll out the red carpet, dust off the tuxedo and finalise the details for your perfect Cannes Film Festival event. This is the time to see and to be seen and whether you are at the Variety party on the Croisette or planning an event at the Cannes Film Festival in a private Cannes Villa then attention to detail is everything. Adams & Adams have over 15 years of experience of organising events for clients at the Film Festival and here are our top 5 tips to ensure that your event is perfect in every detail.
5 Top Tips for your Event at the Cannes Film Festival
Location - Stick closely to La Croisette. Yours will probably be one of several events being held on the same evening and, if your guests have to try and grab a cab then you run the risk of a low turnout - walking distance is the name of the game. Choose one of the Cannes Croisette venues from our selection.
Date - Check your dates with the festival planning and try not to clash with some of the more exclusive and celebrated events that are the 'must have' invitation of the year. Avoiding the date of the annual Amfar charity event is always a good plan!
Invitations - It's never too early to invite your guests, add that date to the diary as soon as possible.
Menu - More and more of our clients are choosing options from our superfoods and healthy menu options and, during a major event it's always a welcome change for guests to be able to eat something delicious but that is a little lighter than the usual cocktail fayre.
Champagne - No self-respecting Film Festival event is without some great fizz and of course we are in France, home of arguably the best champagnes in the world. But our advice is to get that order in early, to avoid any issues with your first choice being available.
Here we go…Starting the Cannes Season with MIPIM
MIPIM is the start of the Cannes corporate season. It is the event that really kicks off the Adams & Adams season with cocktail parties, lunches and more...and it's only a 3 day event....but we have the experience to help with your MIPIM Event Planning.
It's always a busy time for us as we welcome back clients from previous years and of course work with new real estate companies for whom this is one of their key international events.
This years event takes place from the 12th - 15th March at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes and there are a host of new items on the agenda. There is the New Startup Competition, The MIPIM Future Talent Competition and a discussion on 'Housing the World'.
If you are part of the global real estate industry then we'll see you next month in Cannes. And don't forget to book your catering, we now have very limited availability.
